Our Hand Knotted rugs
The art of weaving developed in the region comprising South Asia at a time when few other civilizations employed it. Some historians consider the Indus Valley civilization to have been the first to develop the use of woven textiles.
With skills passed down from generation to generation through numerous eras in history our wonderful craftsmen have the capacity and skill to produce hand-knotted rugs that are durable, color fast and fine whilst famous for their resilience, softness, exquisite workmanship and novel designs.
Our Vintage Overdyed Rugs
We collect beautiful vintage Persian rugs that need a new lease of life and through a lengthy process using natural vegetables dyes and particular ways of washing a final stunning piece of work is created.
The dyes that are derived from plants and berries affect each rug and yarn slightly differently giving it a beautifully distressed look. Colours blend and textures soften, creating a fusion of modern with traditional. The end result is a unique piece with its own character.
Our kilims are visually impactful yet simple in their structure. Kilim designs are made by interweaving the variously coloured wefts and warps, creating what is known as a flat weave. Hand woven by skilled weavers using natural vegetable dyes and 100% Ghazni wool a soft and visually stunning kilim is created with each being one of a kind.
While being traditional in design and quality they are contemporary in colour and offer a cultural connection with the origins of rug making.
