We love handmade textures as well as natural colours and materials. We buy what we like. We take pride in being innovative and different. Above all, we believe that we can provide carpets, rugs and runners; using ethical and environmentally sound production practices, without compromise to quality, design or style.
We love handmade textures
We believe that our carpets are genuinely interesting because of their textures. We admire the slight quirkiness and irregularity that can only be handmade. From our chunky boucles and bold stripes to our smooth, dense, luxurious Heavy Velvet; our carpets and rugs are warm, textural and tactile, but never boring.
We hand-knot Himalayan rugs from pure Chinese silk or wool sourced from the high plateaux of Tibet. We weave carpets from high quality New Zealand wool, but also from undyed wools chosen from around the globe for their natural colours. We stitch rugs from leather hide and border our wool rugs in cotton, linen, leather or suede.
We love the range and subtlety of natural hues, their ability to make a statement or to fit naturally into a wide range of interiors, both contemporary and traditional. They can look stylish but timeless. They are easy to live with too.
Many of our products are handmade not mass produced, these floor coverings are woven on traditional wooden looms that require no electricity or are knotted by hand. Where possible we weave from undyed wool, thus reducing potentially damaging dyes within production and the environment. We visit our manufacturers regularly so know their labour and production practices. All our rug suppliers are Goodweave registered and inspected.
