All the buying is done by Lieve and her son Steven. As they travel intensively throughout the year in various countries. Each item is selected by hand at the most secluded places. Some sources are very remote and can only be reached by hours of driving. Other places are only accessible by bike. Asian Loft intents to buy straight from the source without the need of an intermediary, knowing many of the local languages (Chinese, Indonesian, French, English, South African…) is therefore necessary.
