Callidus Guild is the vision of Yolande Batteau, a trained and exhibited fine artist who brings decades of aesthetic and decorative skills to the studio. In her work across mediums, Batteau draws inspiration from ancient techniques from around the world, finding new expressions of traditional artforms through iterative experimentation.
The Callidus Guild Collection goes beyond traditional luxury, embracing the idea that true beauty is inseparable from ethics and craftsmanship. Crafted in Nepal by skilled artisans, this hand-knotted collection is made with the finest materials - wool and silk, complemented by linen, mohair, and metallic lurex accents. The collection comprises of six compositional designs and four small-scale patterns in multiple colourways - a total of eighteen new carpets.
Tai Ping has partnered with Label Step ensuring the wellbeing of weavers and workers in the handmade carpet industry, including the prohibition of child labour; working conditions; fair wages and eco-friendly production.
Step actively supports producer improvements while empowering weavers and workers through educational programs that cover topics such as health, safety, and financial literacy.
Through these combined efforts, Tai Ping and Label STEP reinforce industry sustainability and help preserve centuries-old artisanal skills.
