the name "slightly east" alludes to turkey, the country where our founder's textile education began. mollie started going to turkey as a young woman on buying trips while working for lynn seiller, textile guru and owner of canoe, a rug shop formerly in louisville, kentucky. her love for unexpected combinations of patterns and colors first seen in turkey is apparent in slightly east's designs.
inspired by traditional textiles, slightly east was started with the idea to bring handwoven fabrics to people's homes and everyday wardrobes. all of our products are made of silk ikat fabric woven in uzbekistan the age-old way. we are proud to say that all of our ready-made goods and accessories are produced here in the usa.
