No, it’s NOT a construction company! Hable Construction is a textile and accessories manufacturer, based in New York City. Founded in 1999 by sisters Katharine and Susan and named for their grandfather’s construction company in Texas.

Watch for them again, next Christmas… and now there are rugs and outdoor mats.

It’s the attention to detail that makes Hable Construction so outstanding; and, the artisans they use outside the U.S., in Hungary, are all employed under the Fair Trade program. Take a look at their site!
