Travel broadens the mind, they say. Our journeys to the countries where our rugs are produced are definitely characterized by many new impressions. Often, we will be surprised by how much is possible on the production side: much more than we imagine! Thus, it is not just fun to travel to India and Nepal, but we always learn a lot as well: about wool dyeing, about weaving and its endless possibilities, about the final steps that have to be undertaken before a rug is finished – and about the locals’ approach to dealing with new challenges. We always find that while communication works very well in English, it takes joint on-site experiences to develop a real mutual understanding.
