Curiosity (from Latin cūriōsitās, from cūriōsus "careful, diligent, curious", akin to cura "care") is a quality related to inquisitive thinking such as exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in humans and other animals. Curiosity is heavily associated with all aspects of human development, in which derives the process of learning and desire to acquire knowledge and skill. Zuss, M.

To spark curiosity in others by consciously elevating our environment through design, fine art, heritage accessories and revitalizing ancient art forms through a contemporary lens.
Create a collective of curious seekers looking to connect with the world around us; to celebrate vintage, unique works and support artisans in their pursuit of craft. By bringing a piece of their labor of love or a piece of the past, into our lives, we are elevating our world to be one of thoughtful acquisition.
Our Modus Operandi
Unique Collections in Very Limited Quantities
We are creating small batch couture offerings of pillows, heritage accessories and on-of-a kind works of art. We will launch new collections every season, making each collection a limited time offer and a true collector’s edition.
We are creating heritage pieces with the hope they will be woven into the soul of your family and home. Sourced from high quality antique, vintage, and handwoven textiles, our pillows are intended to grow in character with age.
Upcycling of Vintage Textiles
Like the saris we use for our pillows, handmade vintage textiles are a work of art and were sown with pride by artisans – they deserve to be given new purpose.
Sourced around the world
Like sari from India, the Japanese shibori and batik from ancient Egypt, almost every culture around the world has their own way of expressing themselves through textiles by the way they are made or the imagery that appears. We love to support these artisan craftsmen, so these individual histories are not lost with generic mass production.
We source our textiles from around the world showing our wide-ranging love for French grandeur, Vietnamese embroidery to Indian brocade and block-printing.
While we source our textiles from around the world, all of our products are made in USA workrooms. Our pillows are sewn in family workrooms in the same way that the sari textiles were handmade and not mass produced.
Providing local jobs is paramount to our contribution to society as a whole and the economy. We work with trusted high-quality workrooms that we have built solid relationships with over the past 30 years.
