"A medium encompassing great design and colour, all wrapped up with human culture, endeavour and history."

Ethos

Ethical Working Practices & Responsibility
Turkey: Following on from the Dobag Project, which in early 1980s was a UNESCO funded endeavour to reintroduce natural dyes and hand spinning, we are continuing to maintain and develop cultural heritage by supporting production and rewarding skilled weavers.
Afghanistan: Working with Turquoise Mountain, a charitable foundation that revives traditional crafts, skills and jobs.

Natural, Sustainable Materials
Our custom made rugs are produced using blends of high-altitude wool, which is hand-spun to produce a high lustre yarn. Native plants and mineral mordents are then used for dyeing.
