Our handcrafted rugs are meticulously hooked, woven and tufted by skilled artisans with the power to transform an ordinary space into something spectacular. Created in northeastern India by local weavers, these intricate rugs provide a livelihood to villagers, particularly women who have been traditionally excluded from opportunities in India’s workforce. The elaborate process takes several artisans to complete, beginning with patterns that are hand traced and colored. Dependent on which highly detailed construction is chosen for a rug design, it can take anywhere from one week to over six months to complete one of these expertly crafted masterpieces.
A portion of the profits from these rugs and pillows goes towards a school lunch program that serves fresh, nutritious daily meals to 1.3 million children in rural India. For many children, this is their only substantial meal of the day. Additional donations are also made to a scholarship program that enhances literacy and learning in Southeast Asia. Nearly 80 percent of children from impoverished families drop out before graduation due to the burden of educational fees, books and uniforms. This program helps compensate for all school expenses in addition to mandating and paying for after-school tutoring for students most in need.
