Himalayan Hermitage Radhi Rugs, Aunsi
Aunsi is Nepali for 'Queen of the Night'.
This elegant and understated area rug combines modern Scandinavian design with an ancient textile, the traditional Nepali radhi rug. These rugs are made entirely by hand, woven on looms with hand-spun wool, and have a wonderfully soft feel.
The skill involved in weaving a radhi was such an important trait, that while looking for a possible bride for their sons, the villagers would make sure that the future daughter-in-law would know the art of weaving these woolen rugs!

Not Just Buying Well, But Also Buying Kinder
We strive to support ethical and sustainable production by being mindful of our sourcing decisions, which can mean, for example, choosing products that use sustainable and natural materials, are made by artisans and craftspeople who live in places with worker protections, or uses a process that minimizes waste. We may not save the world with these measures, but we feel that at the very least we can choose to minimize further harm.
We also love supporting independent designers and craftspeople, and working with smaller, lesser-known brands. You'll find handmade pieces in our collection where we know who made it!
