Tantuvi works with 7th generation Dhurrie weavers of North India for their flat weave rugs, reinterpreting traditional patterns and weaves of the region. By working collaboratively with hand-loom co-operatives, they help sustain the artisans and craft to preserve their intimate traditions of hand spun, dyed, and woven cottons and silks of the Eastern Ghats and Rajasthan. Each rug takes around 8-10 weeks to produce!
'Tantuvi', translates to 'Weaver' in Sanskrit. Like Koskela, social impact is a core pillar of Tantuvi's business. All weavers are paid a fair wage for their expertise, with initiatives in place to help give back to the village through school and community funding. Because they believe that when Tantuvi succeeds, the village succeeds.Composition: 100% Hemp, hemp is naturally anti-bacterial so this fibre can be used outdoors as well.
