Carla Peters

From her home base in the Netherlands, Carla Peters works with artisans in countries around the world to create unique home accessories. "My designs have a strong focus on textures, materials, details and decoration." She collaborates with craftspeople in workshops from Thailand to Peru, and her collections have helped to create jobs and income for skilled artisans. This season, we worked with her on a series of vases that Vietnamese artisans hand-blast with grains of sand to achieve a unique, beachy texture.

"I'm inspired by everything from texture to street life to nature's small wonders."
