Our shelves are full of new mini kantha blankets!
If you've never felt one of our blankets, I would describe them as very, very soft. Imagine a lightweight, muslin fabric, scarf, or swaddle cloth: our blankets are six layers of that soft, thin cloth stitched together. They make a perfectly cuddly "blankie", a lap blanket, or a pop of color for a room. If you have felt one, write a review and share what you think with the rest of us!
We've also added 20 new silk blend / "luxe" throw blankets. They are made with reclaimed sari cloth that has been discarded by the producers for flaws, color variation, outdated patterns, or as a remnant. The specific composition is unknown, and each unique blanket varies in feel.
Generally speaking, they are more structured and thick than the cotton throws. Some have cloth that is more slippery, some are more stiff. These ones are less cozy and more like stunning statements for the end of a bed or over a chair. It is difficult to capture the richness of the jewel colors, the iridescence, or the brilliance of the embroidered borders in photographs, but every time I shoot them, I am in awe of their beauty.
Pssst... our newwhite kantha are comingvery soon in bedding & throw sizes...
The threat of technology to our humanness is no new fear (hello, Blade Runner! …actually: goodbye, you are a super boring movie 😆). But, there seems to be an acute crisis of our current cultural moment, as we relate to technology.
Here is just a fraction of writings from the past month addressing this:
With so much pain, brokenness, ugliness in the world, attention to beauty, joy, & wonder is absolutely necessary!
Beauty may not solve problems itself... A stunning photograph will not end famine or war. Banksy's graffiti art does not solve Middle eastern contested-land conflicts.
But, the restoration, hope, and inspiration that come from creativity and beauty are like gas in the tank — fuel for the drivers & changers of the world.
We don’t receive a lot of returned items, but it does happen. Of course! There is some degree of risk in shopping online, always.
Stores take different approaches to return policies, sometimes with great sophistication in how it will impact your willingness to purchase. Here's a little peek at what I've learned over the years (as a customer and also as a retailer) about return policies.
