Long before the industrial revolution, Westerners crossed unforgiving deserts, thick equatorial jungles and ship-swallowing seas for the superior weaves of the Far East. And no wonder. According to ancient writings, the art of weaving natural fibers by hand is believed to date back to 800 BC. Our Handwoven Collection celebrates and helps preserve this art still practiced in many of the provinces today. At our weaving facilities, the loom masters use techniques passed down through generations to hand weave natural fibers. Later, craftsmen in our finishing facility handcraft each window covering to the designers' precise specifications.
