The Turkish Collection
Originally used in Turkish baths, Turkish towels, also known aspeshtamels or hammam towels, have been traditionally hand-loomed inTurkey for centuries. They are made using extra-long, tightly wovenfibers which gives them a lightweight, yet highly absorbent quality. Thepatterns feature vibrant motifs conveying the timeless heritage of theAntatolia culture.
Our Turkish towels are loomed by small, family owned workshops in theDenizli region of Turkey. Weaving is the main source of income forthese skilled weavers, who pride themselves on keeping the loomingtradition alive, utilizing manual craftsmanship without compromisingquality. They only use eco-friendly, OEKO-TEX certified, 100% naturalfibers such as cotton and bamboo and colors are achieved throughnon-harmful dyes. Tassels are hand-knotted by women in their homes.

The Alpaca Collection
In the earliest Peruvian history, you will find examples of the bondbetween the Incas and alpaca. The Incas placed a higher value on alpacafiber than gold or silver. The knowledge and craftsmanship of spinningand knitting has been passed down from generation to generation,resulting in the rich, diverse textile heritage of Peru. New patternsare combined with traditional methods, giving an innovative touchwithout losing the ethical heritage.
The alpaca live mostly without any boundaries in the highlands of thePeruvian Andes and are not harmed during the shearing process. Theirsoft padded feet are gentle on the grass terrain and they graze withoutdestroying the root system of the area. Alpaca is the only animal thatproduces up to 28 natural colors and can be blended into an infinitearray of natural shades from inky black to warm chestnuts and snowywhite. It is easily dyed in any color and always retains its naturalluster.
Alpaca is supple and smooth to the touch and because of thefeatherweight, it’s ultra-light. Alpaca is softer than cashmere andwarmer and stronger than lamb’s wool.
