Our entry into the world of sustainable design happened quite organically. A friend gave founder, Katherine Yaphe, some fabric remnants from an upstart fashion collection. Together, these friends collaborated to turn that "waste" material into something beautiful. And so was born our zero waste collection of rugs and pillows - handwoven in Brooklyn. We continue to create sustainable collections with our weaving partners around the world. Our Naturals collection of hand-knotted rugs uses undyed yarns and a mix of natural fibres to create warmth and texture naturally, our recycled kilims are made from repurposed vintage rugs, and our denim collection is handwoven with upcycled denim yarn. Each of these lines stretches us in new ways and gets us to think about the entire creative process - not just the end product. It's a start and all began with a simple idea turned into action.
