Tantuvi – Afternoon Light
When founder Arati Rao was a child in New York, learning about her mother’s handwoven saris, and how each was named for the Indian region it originated from. Tantuvi is reimagining what handmade in India can be. Through years of building meaningful relationships with their artisans, Tantuvi upholds India’s bright heritage.

ITEM WE LOVE

Tantuvi says the No. 9 rug was inspired by simple, pictorial film animations from the early 20th century, and their own artistic experimentation with the scaling and layering of basic shapes. Truth be told we're seeing a lanscape of staggered mountains in the distance, or maybe an urban sweep of roofs and eaves from afar...depending on our mood. Either way, we're loving the slightly askew, just ordered enough vibes of this heirloom quality beauty.

NOTEWORTHY

HEMP KULFI ROSE
Earthy tones of India’s landscape with the saturated colors of the local ice cream it’s named after — in this case the pinks and reds of a flavor imbued with rose petals.

NO 7. SOL COTTON
The bisected geometric composition of the No. 7 rug was inspired by simple, pictorial film animations from the early 20th century, and our own artistic experimentation with the scaling and layering of basic shapes.

 

EULERIAN IN LUNA
Simple and rhythmic lines evoke the light of a desert moon slicing through nighttime shadows.
