The Weavers



Our mission is to support and bring awareness to Turkish families who have struggled over the years to keep their weaving traditions alive. We work directly with families who have been weaving for over six generations. Unfortunately, only a handful of traditional workshops remain due to industrial textile manufacturing that diminish Turkey’s weaving culture. Traditional weaving is an amazing trade that has been taught for generations, and we have the pleasure of helping to keep it alive :)

Our objective is to preserve the Turkish art of weaving.  Hoa Kai supports local artisans by promoting their products and quality to a market that understands the benefits to be found in materials from old-style-shuttled looms, while appreciating the human factor in the textiles. We are grateful to know that with each purchase this art still lives, and is perpetuated from generation to generation.  With your help and support, we can keep this up indefinitely!
