Who We Are

International Offices

USA: Located in Tonganoxie, Kansas, our worldwide headquarters are still located on the family farm, with the corporate offices housed in a remodeled barn more than 100 years old. "The Farm" is near the Kansas City metro, a vibrant city with beautiful residential areas, wonderful shopping and dining, and a diverse group of major employers. Kiplinger Magazine has rated Kansas City as one of the 50 Smart Places to Live.

Our New York City design office employs a staff dedicated to creating our unique collection of woven merchandise.

UK: The European operation began in 1995, serving just the UK, and moving to the larger premises at Goring-on-Thames in 1999 as the business grew to accommodate the company entering the German market. The Goring operation employs dozens of people and consists of a call centre with English and German-speaking staff as well as a warehouse and order fulfillment operation which serves our primary European markets.

Peru: Our office in Lima, Peru works closely with our vendors in the development of our textiles and the production of our unique merchandise, as well as the assurance of its quality.
