-Pete Erskine, Co-Founder and Buyer
We travel the world to source our unique and handmade items. In India, that means exploring markets, shops and makers from New Delhi to Pushkar to Mumbai. A splendid sensory overload of color and pattern, people and animals, music and voices, tastes and aromas, India shows us something new, unexpected and unforgettable on every visit.
Pete is proud of never bargaining the price he is given and always paying artisans for their skill and hard work. We see for ourselves how our goods are made and we work with the people who make them to keep items affordable and workshop wages fair.
We forge long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with the artisans who handcraft our products. Pete and Kim have known many of our vendors for over a decade! Buying trips to workshops are chances to catch up with old friends and make new memories.

Our products are unique, handmade by a number of different craftsmen and don't usually fit the standard sizing "norm". Please see specific product measurements (on each product page) and use this chart as a general guide only! Feel free to contact us with any questions on sizing, any time!
