Aloka is committed to seeking potential in existing resources to create arrestingly beautiful, well-designed products for the home. Our quilts, made from layers of saris that were hand-stitched some 60-80 years ago in India, are picked, one at a time, for their material integrity and design. We shampoo, soften and dye the vintage pieces in India then cut and stitch “families” of pillows and custom cushions in our Atlanta studio.
Aloka is about connection and comfort. Our team— a small group of artists and textile afficianodos— embraces the beauty of the quilts “as-is” and is also passionate about reenergizing them with custom and natural overdyes. We even treasure the smallest remnant and design products with them that compliment our line and express our care for the craft and planet.
