Meet Dasati

There are some designs that just keep finding themselves in my collections, season after season, year after year. I first introduced the ‘Dasati’ aka ‘Verdin’ years ago. The nazar block design is a symbol, or talisman, used to ward off and protect against an ‘evil eye’ (a curse).

Designer Spotlight: An Interview with David Mann

I am a big fan of David Mann and Fritz Karch of MR Architecture + Decor. Many years ago, David and I started our businesses out in the same building, and on our floor there was an anger management office with people screaming and bashing the walls, and a furrier who left large clumps of fur all over the hallways.

The Woven Valley of Uzbekistan

Ikats, Ikats, Ikats My first visit to Uzbekistan was ten years ago, arranged by Raisa, a local travel agent who helped Aid to Artisans set up a network of weavers in the Fergana valley.  It’s a great story: Aid to Artisans gave these talented weavers small grants of $500-1000.
