What is your Random Act of Creativity?
Ours is a love story; a magical carpet ride started in 2007 when designer Milicent Armstrong first fell in love with shoes and bags made from vintage Kilim carpets on a trip to Istanbul. After several years and lots of Kilim dreaming, Milicent found a small artisan workshop and launched the first Artemis collection out of her South End, Boston apartment in 2013. The combination of beautiful, worldly textiles in classic shapes was an instant hit, and Artemis Design Co. was born. Over the years, our products have become staples in the closets of thoughtful, stylish men and women worldwide, who appreciate the delightful combination of outstanding quality, everyday comfort, and the use of beautiful textiles in charming, unconventional ways.
