Handmade, beautiful and unusual
Whether we’re looking for furniture, bedspreads, paintings, carvings or everyday objects what we’re really searching for is the handmade, beautiful and unusual. That’s how we started out over 40 years ago and those are still our guidelines - the search for something inspiring in its beauty, something that lets the light in!
We don’t describe any products as antique, but some of the items, including many of the embroidered wall hangings from Gujarat and Rajasthan, are vintage mid 20th century or older.
The collection from Afghanistan was gathered together in the 70’s and 80’s and the textiles from Laos about 10 years ago. The Tibet collection originates from Tibet or Tibetan communities living in India and Nepal.
The photographs from India, Tibet and Nepal are taken by Peter. These images include the subterranean architecture of the ancient stepwells of Rajasthan & Gujarat and the landscape & Buddhist monasteries of Ladakh, Tibet and the Buddhist Himalaya.
We have a longstanding affection for this part of the world and we visit India on a regular basis, searching out obscure places to visit and unusual items to buy. If you want to contact us we’re always happy to share our travel knowledge and connections.
