Custom Design Service

Here at A Rum Fellow we love to design, collaborate and create. We offer a custom design service to individuals and interior designer companies seeking unique items with exceptional design, quality and provenance. We source furniture and other items from across Europe, we work with you on a design and colour palette for a bespoke fabric which is then handwoven or hand-embroidered by Peruvian tribal artisans. We can then upholster or sew to transform the fabulous textiles into truly beautiful pieces that will become instant heirlooms.

Here our weavers are holding a custom design which will be handwoven and then upholstered on a set of 8 dining chairs for an interior design client.

We work with a cooperative of female artisans who are arguably the best in world at what they do. These women live and breath wool, and are engaged in every process from rearing animals, spinning the wool, naturally dying the yarn, and finally hand weaving the wool. Despite their wonderful talents these rural communities live in poverty, living in challenging environments with limited access to markets. By working directly with the women, by supporting and promoting their incredible work, we can help them lift themselves out of poverty. Putting capital in the hands of these women is an important step towards alleviating their poverty and achieving a quality sustainable livelihood.
