Pillow covers, tablecloths, placemats, wall hangings, bedspreads, shawls, and more...
Functional, handmade, and each a work of art.

We source from family businesses, village cooperatives, small workshops,

and occasionally from a grandmother producing with her weaving loom positioned next to her kitchen table.

 

Each piece honors unique regional weaving traditions handed down through generations,

influenced by climate, terrain, and available natural materials.
