This AIR Time interview presented by AIR (Arts Incubator of Richardson) features KUFRI founder and designer Mili Suleman. Mili, born in Mumbai, India and raised in Oman, graduated from Texas Christian University and practiced graphic design for nearly 10 years. Yearning for something more complex and tangible, Mili decided to jump into the world of interior textiles. Falling in love with the craft of handloom weaving, she designed a handwoven collection from scratch. With scant knowledge of weaving, Mili found village artisans in India who bring her designs to life.
Today, KUFRI is synonymous for natural, sustainable textiles, and A-list designers have become fans of the wabi-sabi nature of the brand. Mili lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband.
