Wayfarer

Los Angeles, CA

Wayfarer is a home decor brand that specializes in vintage hemp textiles. We offer a carefully curated selection of vintage rugs, as well as other textiles such as pillows, floor cushions, and custom made rugs made from vintage hemp remnants. Each is one of a kind as no two handwoven kilims are ever exactly alike. Wayfarer textiles are designed in Los Angeles, and ethically made and dyed in Turkey using old village methods passed down generation after generation.

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I collaborated with my plant-dying sister, Katie White, to create my exclusive color line of vintage hemp textiles. All of Wayfarer's vintage hemp is ethically dyed by the sea, and made in Turkey using old village methods passed down generation after generation."

Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"Wayfarer was born from my love of design, need to create, and a desire to share the beauty of handwoven vintage hemp with others. I personally source each and every object I offer, and design all of textiles made from vintage hemp remnants.

Living a natural and sustainable lifestyle is very important to me. I am passionate about creating natural environments that promote health for everyone including those with sensitive immune systems. Vintage wool and hemp are healthy alternatives to off-gassing petroleum-based products such as nylon, polypropylene, and polyester carpets and textiles. Using handwoven vintage hemp remnants to create pillows, floor cushions, poufs and other textiles gives the 80+ year old hemp kilims new life. Additionally, cleaning, repairing, and/or repurposing vintage wool and hemp rugs keep these materials out of landfills. All of Wayfarer’s offerings are made from natural fibers, and dyed with natural or low impact oeko-tex certified dyes."
