African Textiles

West Africa is famous for the richness and quality of its textiles. Its weavers take pride in producing textiles that are beautiful, versatile an important components of African cultures. These extraordinary textiles are still painstakingly handwoven using designs and methods that date back hundreds of years.

Unfortunately, as in many industries in the modern world, time-consuming hand-made textiles must compete with cheaper, mass produced machine-made products. Today there are fewer weavers maintaining time honored high quality of superb African textiles.

We work with renowned West African artisans and a network of highly skilled weavers who produce superior hand-woven textiles using classical motifs, advanced techniques and vegetable dyes including organic indigo grown on-site in our workshops.

Our objective is to introduce African concepts of beauty into contemporary home decor. We blend traditional and modern designs for our life style products to enhance the modern home.
