The quality and character of each of our woven products begins with the careful examination and selection of premium, rapidly-renewable natural fibers. During harvest season, we work with farmers in close proximity to our weaving facility. By cultivating unique natural fibers in this way, we ensure that we leave a smaller environmental footprint. We select only the finest natural materials using strict measures for color, texture and durability. To be prepared for the loom, fibers are dyed, sun-bleached and hand-tied before our loom masters weave our signature textile designs.
A tropical grass with hollow woody stems; mature canes can be used for manufacturing furniture and windowcoverings. The peel and husks can be used raw, and the inner peel can be spun into a thread to make a textile.
Bamboo husk or shoot skin is a leaf that covers the joints of the bamboo tree. Once separated from the bamboo, the husk is split into finer strips, which are then knotted to create a strong filament for weaving.
Cork is harvested from the inner layer of bark tissue primarily from the Cork Oak. Because only the cork is harvested, the tree remains healthy. Cork production is considered environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Raffia fiber is widely used throughout the world. It is produced from the membrane on the underside of each individual frond leaf. The membrane is taken off to create a long thin fiber, which can be dyed and woven as a textile.
The long stalks or stems of water lilies provide a soft, yet strong fiber. Only stems from mature plants are selected for their superior strength and uniformity. Fibers are then sun-dried and handspun.
