The Quilt Makers of Gujarat

We’re extremely fortunate to have discovered Raimal, his wife and daughter, master quilt makers, from Gujarat.

Felt rugs from the mountains

Our radhi rugs are our best-selling products.  Based on traditional radhi produced for the local market in Nepal, they are often used as blankets, floor coverings and even worn to keep out the cold and rain.  They're woven in the Himalayas by artisans using wool from local sheep, which is hand-spun.  We use only the un-dyed wool in our designs - creamy white and a dark grey wool from black sheep.
