And the Avec half makes carpets, other textiles, cushion and poufs designed in Italy and made with traditional processes and materials (all natural dyes, pure cotton and wool) in South America.
Avec's lovely, simple products make me wish I had a loom or at least the patience to knit something larger than a baby sweater.
but my favorite thing Avec makes is the Rasta Pouf. We have 2 in our living room that we got at Luminaire in Chicago's great (but now defunct) annual sample sale.
