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.
