"Today's true luxuries are not things but moments; moments of true comfort, and reconnection with real life"
Timothy Oulton's Noble Souls collection is based on a simple idea: that today’s real luxuries are moments, not things; when we feel ourselves truly alive, and when we deeply reconnect with one another. With a passion for materials and craft, Tim unearthed answers on a journey that crisscrossed the globe, rediscovering ancient craftsmen, their techniques and the pure, natural materials they have used for thousands of years.
The Noble Souls upholstery collection has been colored using special dyes that are 100% organic, extracted naturally from different plants, using dye extraction techniques that are hundreds of years old. Indigo dye is used for blues, and gallnut dye for greys and blacks. No other artificial chemicals are used.
Weaving has for millennia held a noble place in many cultures of the world, as a craft which blends beauty with cultural heritage and day to day practicality. For Noble Souls, the handspun yarn is then handwoven on a large loom. This takes a whole village of women, of all generations, to produce one sofa.
