We have joined forces with Cape Looms, a project that builds community through craft and quality. Hand weaving traditional flatweave rugs in mohair and wool in Cape Town, South Africa. Brainchild of Justin van Breda, Cape Looms have found a way to preserve and enhance long established skills through a creative endeavour that is at once local and of an international standard.

South Africa is the largest Mohair producer in the world, and our fibres come directly from the farms surrounding the weaving workshops.

Fibres of wool and mohair are blended and spun in their local workshops. Blending qualities during the spinning process creates depth of texture and allow for great dreamed of custom rugs to hit the loo
