Ahmad Sardar-Afkhami & Andrew Galuppi
Ahmad Sardar and Andrew Galuppi travel a lot. From Timbuktu to Samarkand, or wherever their clients send them, they monopolize overhead bins with carry-ons full of market finds from the across the mosquito-filled globe. Their philosophy is a contemporary take on luxury in which the handmade and the artisanal play a pivotal role.
