Coral and Hive
Coral + Hive have developed a vast contemporary collection of hand-loomed natural rugs, wall hangings and cushions. Luxurious textures are created with local, ethically-sourced natural fibres from sustainable farms, which include soft durable Karakul wool, luscious silky mohair, and 100% jersey cotton.
The weavers are at the very heart of the business, a talented all-woman team that use traditional looms who have learnt their skills from the generations before them. They loom with quality, consistency and unique designs. Coral + Hive artisans create a myriad of pattern and colour combinations, drawing inspiration from surrounding geometric and abstract landscape and nature.
