Below are our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email us at

How does the custom process work?

The custom process can vary depending on the item. Firstly, we will guide your expectations to ensure that they match our own, including the timeframe, cost, and nature of handwoven items, as well as the process.

Some items can only use certain fibres and techniques, due to the items end use. For example, towels can’t use wool, and some weaving drafts wouldn’t hold up to everyday use that towels require.

We take on board these things when guiding you through the process, and will advise on what is best for the end use.


How much is a custom project?

The pricing per metre is available on our Pricing page.

Pricing starts at the base price for each item, and then listed underneath the base price is add ons including different fibres, drafts, and techniques.
