Calikala

Behind Calikala are William and Zovig, a husband and wife team, who work by appointment only, ­ currently in Kuwait. They travel extensively and source rare or unusual textiles and artefacts. They are thus able to offer an eclectic range of collectibles: Central Asian embroidery and silks, Caucasian, Persian, and Anatolian rugs and tribal weavings, Turkmen trappings, Southeast Asian textiles, and metal and wooden objects of both ethnographic and aesthetic interest.
