Applying geographical motifs and designs of symbolic significance, we prepare basic patterns setting the stage for customization. While the warp is created with fine silk to ensure a lush feeling of comfort, the weft can be picked from a range of natural dyes and selected rare fibers to satisfy your personal style and wearing needs.
Among our rare fibers are Lotus, Angora, Merino, Nettle, Alpaka and Vikuna. For finishing you can choose between fringes, handrolling and hemstitches. We source all fibers directly from local cooperatives or from partners to whom the highest quality is just as important as taking care of labour conditions, keeping of the animals and the environment. Transparency, short trade channels and control over our products are very important to us to ensure sustainability. All customized items are handwoven and refined in our Swiss manufacture. Prices are determined by your choice and will be offered upon your request at email@example.com
Knowledge of incorporating traditionally used motifs and designs are fast disappearing from all local communities, even weaving in back-strap loom is often confined to only a few artisans. Considering the declining trend in textile tradition in the region, we feel it is about time to preserve the craft and knowledge about symbolic meanings in our alpine region. With every item to you support these efforts while purchasing a one-of-a kind accessory of the highest quality. By sourcing luxurious rare fibers from our partners we are commited to raise awarenes for cultural heritages worldwide.
