Wool from the Tibetan highlands, fine Chinese silk and nettle yarn all possess exceptional qualities which consequently characterize the products. In Nepal, our certified partner workshops have often been in the hands of the same family for generations. There, carpets are hand-crafted using traditional Tibetan knotting methods under sustainable and socially responsible conditions. Due to the heterogeneous nature of fibers and threads, to their diverse colours and hues, and to the personal interpretation of craftsmen, every rug ends up being a unique masterpiece. These objects are living proof that true values are wisely handed down from generation to generation.

An Ovambo proverb states: “Only by moving forward do we reach the end of the journey.” Tembea means to walk or to wander in Swahili. The procession through the desert, translated into modern carpet art.

Low-pile carpet in 45% silk, 35% Tibetan highland wool and 20% nettle fibers.
