Kazimah Carpets and Decor started as an attempt for Josh Guzman to pursue his passion for ethically produced handwoven textiles and partner it with his love for interior design. What started as a shopping spree in the Middle East turned into an opportunity to give back to the women who are the source of these stunning carpets.
How it works
Kazimah Carpets and Decor is partnering with Give4 and The Loom Project, a branch of their business, that intentionally focuses on the production of handwoven carpets from the Baluch tribal villages on the border of Afghanistan and Iran. The nomadic Baluch people have been weaving carpets for thousands of years, and Josh had the opportunity to tap into the legacy. The goal was not to have these women weave a completely new style, but mix the traditions of their culture with colors that are more attractive to the western consumer.

BUY WITH PURPOSE
These pieces are just the beginning of what Kazimah Carpets and Decor believes will become a long term partnership with these weavers. They believe that buying directly from the weavers themselves is the best way to keep the income, and ultimately the power, in their hands! The women in these villages are the true bread winners of their families. They produce these magical carpets that keep their traditional carpet weaving alive. When you purchase a carpet you are providing life giving income and hope to these women.
