The HT Journey

Each year, the creation of our new products starts with a trip to Italy, where Saeed and Ellie, our founders, are warmly greeted by the owners of the most well respected European mills. As a family owned business, relationships are the core of what we do. As such, we have been working with the same family owned mills since our founding in 1988. Not only does this offer us preferred access to the highest quality materials, it also allows us to maintain consistency in our products.

We pride ourselves in using the finest resources and processes to create our collection. We look forward to taking you through the journey of our bespoke pieces from start to finish.
