About Us

Cheviot was founded in 1984 by Zul Amlani. Now living on his third continent and in need of a bathroom sink, he discovered that he was unable to find in North America, products of the style, quality, and applications he was accustomed to in other parts of the world. What started as a search for a bathroom sink evolved into a desire to connect North American homeowners to cultures, traditions, and manufacturing techniques from around the world so they could express more worldly lifestyles in their own homes.

North American bathroom fixture distribution is dominated by volume and price. At Cheviot we take a different approach. We start by examining the historical/geographical context of our partners. This includes everything from working with a family owned cast iron producer in Europe on our bathtubs, to diving into the ancient and deeply rooted bath culture of Turkey for our ceramics. Our Designer Collections boast work from acclaimed Italian, American, Brazilian, and Japanese designers, each bringing a unique outlook and philosophy to their collections. These are the stories that Cheviot products tell.
