About the collection
Desert Tones, a 3-piece limited edition capsule collection of flatweaves, was inspired by the desert at winter. Gemi is a re-issue of a design originally released in 2019 with an updated palette of sage gray, like the fragrance of cool desert evenings.
- A central medallion provides a focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by smaller motifs
- A linear, step-like pattern expresses the classic qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
- Artisanal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
- A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
New Zealand wool is a premium wool beloved for its softness and long fibers. Like all wools, it has a hydrophobic layer which repels dust and dirt, and lanolin, which provides its trademark luster and protects the fiber from breaking or shedding. It's woven onto a sturdy cotton warp for added durability.
