Sapere Collection is a boutique vintage rug shop curated by Kelly Housholder in Birmingham, Alabama.
Sapere has an in-house collection of vintage and antique pieces which are available for purchase online.
If you're shopping from afar - all shipping to you is free! I offer a 3 day return policy so that you can try the rug in your space and return it via mail if it isn't 'the one!'
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. I love in-home appointments! You can either take home something from my in-house collection for up to 3 days to try it in your own space and return it if it doesn't work, or I can get to work sourcing the perfect rug for your space.
Sourcing - How I work
I've developed relationships with over 40 sources in various weaving countries and in the US 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!
