driven by purpose

Creating opportunities, keeping traditions alive

A platform dedicated to promote traditional skills and support those dependent on them by creating opportunities. Champions of slow-living and lovers of Mother Nature, we currently design and create one-of-a-kind beautiful handmade sofa and bed blanket throws in cotton and organic wool, vintage and new Indian kantha quilts, plant dyed cushions, raffia mats and deadstock travel bags made by Syrian Refugees.

As a peoples first company we focus on the well-being of our artisans. We are working towards creating a completely transparent supply chain. We provide tools to artisans who are cannot afford them and pay all involved fair wages. We invest in the development of our artisans in the hope to make them self-sufficient and well rehearsed in the global market. We work in small batches to ensure there is a continous stream of income.

 

Our planet comes first in all that we do, this means we use natural materials only, we work with eco-certified dye houses and plant dye where possible. Methods chosen for production have minimum impact on the environment and all our packaging is plastic free, recycled and recyclable.
