WE’RE OFTEN ASKED ABOUT OLIVER.
Who is he? Where’s he from? What’s he like? Dare we admit our namesake was actually the dog of founder, Katherine Yaphe? A beautiful grey and white Bearded Collie with a big bark and a gentle soul.
SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME FIT.
So did rugs. Katherine comes from a long line of family in the carpet business. But it took her well over a decade of working in the corporate world, to find her roots.
IT’S ABOUT CRAFT.
At Oliver Yaphe, we create textiles made by hand. We care about craft. Preserving craft. Knowing from where things come and how they are made.
TELLING A STORY.
Every item we make has a story. The journey begins long before an item reaches your home and hopefully continues well beyond the point you thought imaginable.
MAKING IT LAST.
We’re making things for the long haul. Buying and curating items to last. Not just because they’re beautiful, but also because we think it matters – to you, to everyone involved in this process, to this place we call home.
Roam around. Enjoy. We hope you stay a while.
