We build sustainable essentials that are built to last.

We believe in creating timeless pieces with the world in mind. Our sustainable essentials are handcrafted and consciously made with craftspeople all around the world.

Slow Factory is the link between our world and galaxies whose distance reaches places beyond our imagination. Today, we are here, and we are all inherently connected.

We are the cosmos. We are Slow Factory.

OUR STORY

I come from a land of chaos: Beirut, Lebanon. Ever since I was a child, we moved around, traveling from Beirut to Paris to Montreal. Throughout it all, the stars always guided our travels and imagining space became a way to ground me. Because while I never had a traditional definition of home, I always felt comforted by the constant presence of the stars.

That’s why I started Slow Factory. I learned a lot from working with the open-knowledge, open-
source movement and how it allowed people to connect with one another. Inspired by NASA’s open data images of satellites and telescopes and by collaborating with other artists, our images of our World and our Universe were created to be a reminder of how we can find beauty and connection in the cosmos.

Now that I’ve made a home in New York, the bright city lights make it harder to see the stars.

But if I can help people feel a little more connected with our cosmic silk prints, I will be happy knowing that I’ve made a small impact in a really big way.
