"We were working on a fabulous New England home outside Boston with a delightful client, who asked me if I could make an ottoman with an antique Persian kilim design she had fallen in love with, as a cover. She also added that everyone else had declined the job. I love challenging projects, where we can realise the client’s dream, so we ended up making the kilim, the ottoman and a number of pashmina and alpaca rugs. She was so thrilled that she sent me a very sweet hand-written thank you note. 

We frequently work on collaborations with artists including calligrapher Hassan Massoudy and Nicolas Galtier. We are currently focusing on a brand new collection in conjunction with an American artist, which will be launched at the London Design Festival 2020."
