    Custom Weaving in our Dallas studio

    What makes a space truly well-appointed and memorable?
    Answer... when its contents are bespoke.

    A beautiful, bespoke space can be achieved by making small magical changes.
    For example, purchasing stock furniture chairs but reupholstering them in a custom textile.

    We are delighted to announce Custom Weaving in our Dallas, TX studio.
    We would love to collaborate with you to create a textile that’s perfect for your project.

    Casey Johnson, our in-house weaver and studio assistant, working at our loom, fondly named Lagertha.

    Our boards are constantly getting pinned with new in-house woven designs.
    Colorful yarns and plenty of neutrals stacked on our shelves.

    Process magic on the loom.

    Lead times for weaving initial custom sample: 2-3 weeks

    Press: Interview by InteriorsbyJacquin

    We received big love from design blogger InteriorsbyJacquin -- Thank you for the delightful interview and sharing the KUFRI story.

    "Today we venture into the world of slow textiles with Dallas brand KUFRI, owned and created by the talented Mili Suleman. The term “slow textiles” captures the essence of a fully handmade, woven fabric created in a slow, artisanal manner as has been done for hundreds of years. Powered by handlooms, Mili Suleman’s company KUFRI is keeping alive the traditional weaving techniques of India with a contemporary spin for the modern design lover. Mili was kind enough to welcome me into her home for an interview where I learned about her foray into entrepreneurship, her creative spirit, and the process behind her one of a kind textiles"
