About Sapere

Sapere Collection is a boutique vintage rug shop curated by Kelly Housholder in Birmingham, Alabama. 

Read more about Kelly and Sapere Collection's start in Boulder, Colorado in the Denver Voyage. 

Sapere has an in-house collection of vintage and antique pieces which are available for purchase online or at Club Duquette in Birmingham

If you're local, this collection can be a jumping off point for finding your perfect piece -- you can feel the different piles, textures, lengths and see the plant and vegetable dyes up close. You can either take home something from my in-house collection for up to 3 days to try it in your own space, or I can get to work sourcing the perfect rug for your space.

If you're shopping from afar - all shipping to you is free! You can try the rug in your space for up to 3 days and return it via mail if it isn't 'the one!'

Sourcing - How I work

I've developed relationships with over 40 sources in various weaving countries so that I can have thousands upon thousands of rugs at my fingertips at any time. I take on sourcing projects for both designers and clients. Let me know what size and style of rug you're looking for and I'll head to my sources to find something just for your project. 

All phone consultations and appointments are complimentary – we’ll discuss your space, your aesthetic and budget. After I have a sense of what you’re seeking, I’ll get to work sourcing the perfect piece!
