This picture from our factory shows some new tiny basket/trays made from the extra fabric at Eskayel. How cute? There’s only about a dozen of these in stock and they would make an adorable holiday gift! Check the website for availability soon.

Also, have you seen our awesome new Ripple – Pearl hamper! Only available at ABC Carpet + Home.

Friends who make things

Monday, 10 September, 2012

We have such talented friends!

You probably know Katie Deedy from Grow House Grow, but her new tile collection is amazing and we just had to share! It is 100% natural, completely recyclable, and hand crafted in Brooklyn. We would put her tile work in our bathroom if we weren’t renting!

Kevin Curran, a friend I’ve known since high school, is the founder and artist behind Pacific Lights. Kevin makes these elegant and interesting accent lights that are made from repurposed industrial cylinder caps. He lives on a boat, and so they have a distinctive nautical theme.

Even though the artist designs them on his floating home, the lights are cute for a stationary home as well!

If you’re interested in what life is like at sea, check out Kevin’s Captain’s blog! Its pretty cool!
