Having worked with the same two families since we began, our dedicated artisans bring our designs to life with their craftsmanship. We nurture our makers and ensure the ancient art of hand looming continues to be part of our manufacturing process, keeping this environmentally friendly craft alive.
The art of hand looming dates back to the 13th century.
In a wooden vertical shaft loom, the heddles are fixed in place in the shaft. The warp threads pass alternately through a heddle, and through a space between the heddles , so that raising the shaft raises half the threads, and lowering the shaft lowers the same threads and the threads passing through the spaces between the heddles remain in place.
This careful, considered and culturally significant technique is used to create each and every one of our hand woven linen pieces.
Produced in small quantities, the environmentally friendly hand loom has a smaller carbon footprint than other manufacturing processes.
