MATERIALS + PROCESS
Produced using sustainable practices that help improve the livelihoods and welfare of our artisan community makers and reduce the impact on the environment.
Masterfully handwoven on a traditional foot pedal loom that creates a unique and unmatched texture. Its hand-spun yarns are naturally dyed by hand at a family-run workshop using natural minerals and plants. Its pattern, designed by Aleishall Girard-Maxon is achieved using original hand-carved blocks and traditional block printing methods. In a 500 year old family-operated desert master workshop, the complete manual and labor-intensive process result in an overall pattern that is repetitive yet random.
