Oliver Yaphe

About

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 think there’s something inherently special about textiles made over time, using ancient technique. It’s about passing down tradition from generation to generation and truly caring about the process of bringing our designs to life. No two pieces are ever exactly alike. We love that about our products.

AND KEEPING IT SIMPLE.

OLIVER YAPHE is an extension of Katherine’s design (and life!) philosophy. She believes in pairing down and reducing clutter in our lives. But living with less, doesn’t mean that we need to sacrifice beauty or care for details. It means being conscious and purposeful in our choices. Katherine is a minimalist at heart with a love of colour and texture. She wants our homes to be sources of comfort and a reflection of our true character.

MAKING IT LAST.

We’re making things for the long haul. But our collections evolve and change – just as we do. Please check back in and follow our journey.
