This piece comes from our Texture Stories collection which is all about the use of tactile mixes to create intriguing variations of texture, making the textures themselves the main design element of the pieces. This collection started out as an experiment on our part, seeing how new techniques, foreign to our craftsmen, could add a new dimension to our kilims. The design process was a great learning experience for both our design team and craftsmen who tossed ideas and samples back and forth throughout. The artisans who made this product are making fair wages and preserving Egyptian cultural heritage by practicing a craft that has been passed down to them generation to generation. Purchasing this product allows us to continue our mission of reviving and sustaining local crafts and empowering their communities.
