Due Process Stable Trading is partnering with Arzu Studio Hope to produce a collection of handmade rugs created by Afghan woman weavers.
The rugs will feature modern interpretations of traditional designs. A limited number of designs will be by fabric designer Wesley Mancini.
"We will be starting production with a line of very finely woven traditional designs that will become timeless antiques for the future and lend themselves to the centuries old weaving styles of this Afghan region to produce collectibles of future generations," said David Grasse, DPST president.
Arzu Studio Hope is a not-for-profit organization which supports women in rural villages of Afghanistan by providing social benefits and fair wages for the production of high quality rugs.
"Partnering with Arzu to produce this collection allows us to provide our customers with the quality rugs they demand while supporting Arzu's outstanding efforts," said Grasse.
Bakshayesh rugs were regarded as the height of artistic achievement and luxury during the 19th century. Today, Arzu and Due Process offer their interpretations of those rugs in the Bakshayesh Collection.
"This collaboration between Arzu and Due Process, one of the industry's most successful manufacturers of fine hand-knotted carpets, is an exciting development for clients desiring ethically-made luxury products," said Connie K. Duckworth, Arzu founder and CEO.
The Bakshayesh Collection will be available through select dealers in 2014.
