About Us

Since 1987, our mission has been simple. We design and weave quality rugs while holding true to our commitment to use earth-friendly fibers, dyes and give back whenever possible. We search around the world to bring you fresh influences, timeless patterns in subtle colorsways, unexpected silhouettes, global flavors and inspirations, custom capability to satisfy every whim and we only work with partners who share the same beliefs.

A Tradition of Custom Design Excellence

Passed down like a secret from one generation to the next, our hand woven rugs are created one at a time using techniques dating back to the first rug found in icebergs of Siberia. The beautiful and time intensive process involves the artisans using their skilled hands to weave vibrant colors and patterns. It takes several months to create just one, making each finished rug a true masterpiece. Classic designs that transcend time and trend, in a palette of opulent hues. Contemporary designs that are derived from our imaginations. With an unrelenting focus on family — both yours and ours — we are dedicated to furnishing a better world together.
