In Peru and Bolivia, we’ve been loyal partners to some of our favorite artisans for nearly 20 years, and we visit every year. Under fair-trade principles, we work with them on both materials sourcing and ethical manufacturing, including our baby alpaca wool, organic Pima cotton, breathable flax linen and hand-loomed rugs and pillows.
- We choose only premium organic pima cotton from Peru for its kid-friendly durability, silky smooth feel and exceptional quality.
- Alpacas are indigenous to the Peruvian regions where we produce, raised on small farms and sheared humanely without harm to the animals.
- Each hand-loomed rug or pillow is crafted by a single artisan, using techniques passed down through the generations in a family-run workshop in Peru.
70% forest and known for its woodworking traditions, Latvia is a small European country on the Baltic Sea. Our furniture is made there in a socially responsible FSC facility with state-of-the-art dust collection to protect workers and the environment. Waste is recycled through licensed facilities, and wood waste is reprocessed at the factory into briquettes, which are then used to heat the factory during Latvia's cold winters.
Our home team is currently based in Brooklyn (when we're not working from home due to the pandemic). People sometimes think we're a big company, but we're really just nine nonconformists obsessed with design and ethical supply chains, doing our best to manage the daily juggle.
