Timeless Rugs for Home or Office

Timeless rugs for home or office:I moved into a new home almost in September last year and whilst searching for floor rugs, was dismayed to find that almost everything available was imported. I wanted something luxurious, beautiful and locally made, so I decided to make my own.

My Rose Quartz Denhttp://Timeless Rugs for Home or Office
Patchwork rug, Shop in link below

Our handmade rugs are meticulously crafted using traditional methods that originate from Northern Nigeria. Leather is sectioned off into 1 meter squares by hand, perforated and then skilfully handwoven, the rugs are made from goat hides, cowhides and embossed leathers.

Each piece of rug is bound in leather, lightly cushioned and fully lined for your comfort. Each piece measures roughly 70″ x 70″ and takes a period of 3 weeks to make each.

The pieces are cut into 1 meter seed squares
And then Handwoven

The play of textures of the hides and skins adds warmth to any space, making it a perfect choice for the home or office. It is also suitable for wall hanging as the harmonious blend tradition and modernity grace your space with effortless elegance.

Almost complete!

This breathtaking creation would make a gorgeous gift!

Healing Nigerian Crystals

Healing Nigerian Crystals: I’ve always been drawn to crystals and gem stones, especially in their rough, unpolished form. However I didn’t connect with their healing properties personally until December 2018 where I was guided to begin using them to heal old traumas lodged in the physical body that can be hard to shift. Since then, my collection has grown, sourcing sustainably derived rough stones from mostly Northern Nigeria.

Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Smoky Quartz Cluster

In lay man’s terms, the crystals hold a specific frequency
(absorbed from the depth of the earth where they form,) within their structure, that affects one, or the environment where it is placed; assisting one to benefit from the healing energies of the frequency. I see them as exquisite gifts from our Creator to aid us on our journey towards enlightenment

If you wish to start using them, bear in mind that they also absorb negative energy from others and the surroundings, so be sure to educate your self on how and when to clean and charge your crystals so that you are always benefitting.

Deep Purple Amethyst Cluster

I have some favourites, Rose Quartz, which holds within it the highest frequency, Love; out of which we were created, and Amethyst for its powerfully protective and purifying qualities. These two in particular are really accessible for beginners also. If there are any stones in particular you’d like, please let us know.

Here’s to healing, growing, and loving ourselves and each other x

Hope is a Frequency

Warm winds depart, a cool breeze enters 

Waves ahead us crash; a steady flow,

Transluscent crabs dive helter skelter,

Dashing and darting, disappearing into sand holes.

Ships sail somnambulant out of sight,

Darkening aquamarine waters,

And blue-grey gun metal skies.

Bag of 2019, Hero

Our Bag of 2019 goes to the Hero in the classic size; made in Limited quantities of sustainably sourced exotic Ayers and Crocodile skins, it gained immediate cult status at its inception.
