After travelling to, and falling in love with, the East, Kann was inspired to bring an element of her travels home with her and share her passion for the places, colours and craftsmanship she immersed herself in during her travels.

At Pilgrimage Spaces, we value and support individual craftsmanship and artistic integrity over mass production. Each of our pieces holds its own story, which we hope will reflect in the places where they find a home.
