Frequently Asked Questions
How are the textiles sourced?
Through our relationships with large manufacturers who allow us to use their run-off. Also through local markets in Asia.
How are the items made?
Once the design is ready, we work with artisians based in Sri Lanka with a unique skillset to hand-make our pieces, often in their own homes and for a fair wage.
Where do we sell?
At the moment we sell in Sri Lanka and the United Kindom. We're hoping to expand to other markets soon - stay tuned!
