The families we work with are some of the last families in Turkey that loom all of their textiles the way they have been loomed for many hundreds of years - on old, shuttle style looms from exclusively organic cotton threads. The weavers are paid fair wages. Most work in their village or family units to weave and finish our blankets; frequently the men loom the pestemals while women prep the threads for looming and twist the fringe on each completed blanket.
By purchasing our throw blankets you are not only purchasing luxurious throw blankets that your family will enjoy for years to come, but also proving a livelihood for artisan families and helping to ensure the art of looming is passed down to future generations.
