Havally is an online store trading in handmade and artisan textiles from around the globe. I love ethnic, tribal fabrics and meeting the people who make them. I am very fussy, have a keen eye for colour and design, chose only the best quality and finest examples. By dealing directly with the makers I ensure them a fair deal and contribute in a positive way to their livelihoods. Many pieces are one of a kind and will never be repeated. I search for products using traditional methods, natural dyes and cloth. I view myself as a custodian, helping to preserve these disappearing crafts. Be sure to look online, visit the blog and find us at the market under the big pink umbrella.
