Materials: Sisal, hemp, stone, wood, root, clay, terra cotta: nature has provided the raw materials. People, through their cultures, beliefs, and rites, have transformed them.

Colors: Ocher sand, white shells, red earth, brown bark...colors become one with the materials, giving our interiors an incomparable charm and naturalness.

Patterns: Symbolic representations of an imaginary or animal world, they derive from a belief, a rite that speaks a language familiar to the soul, the heart, the unconscious.

Shapes: Pure forms, clean lines...Art and crafts combine to offer the very essence of beauty: simplicity.
