Silks of Sheba is influenced by Mahlets many years of traveling across the world. I immersed myself in the different cultures, languages, and experiences that I encountered throughout my career. In the past 10+ years, I have been lucky enough to visit more than 70 countries. This has been a wonderful way to see the world and become immersed in the design community says Mahlet.
