Textiles Of The World

We can never get enough of the beauty found in kantha blankets… Colourful, patterned and hand embroidered, each is as inspiring as the next. Team with luxurious block printed fabrics and you’ll take your space from run-of-the-mill to bohemian luxe.

Pattern play and clashing prints is our mantra! Never be afraid to mix and match…

Moroccan vintage handira blankets are just magical. Handwoven and embellished by Berber women, we love the way they sparkle.

Display your handwoven dhurrie on the floor or on the wall…

A few one-of-a-kind berber cushions surrounded by greenery and cactus is all it takes to create a gypsy-inspired lounge.

We love how this Hollywood Hills home has recreated a Moroccan riad vibe with layers of tribal rugs and cushions. Perfection!

A lesson in relaxed boho living…

Cover your not so appealing couch with kantha blankets and cushions to create a cosy, inspiring nook. Add a suzani textile from Uzbekistan (as wall hanging) and set the perfect boho hideaway scene.

Moroccan wedding blanket bed heads… Yes!

You can never have too many layers… Or fiddle leaf figs for that matter.

Faded hues and layers of textured rugs for those in need of a quiet yet atmospheric space.

Or, amp up the impact of berber cushions and blankets with saturated colours and neon highlights.

Dhurrie covered sofa with tassle fringing – aahhh can it get any better?!

I made a fairly big life decision recently and moved to India… Yep, packed up and moved to India. I’ve already found a shop that sells real cheese and ferrero rochers so life is looking pretty rosy really. Especially when I get treated to romantic little getaways, like this one, at Dadhikar Fort…

As if we hadn’t fallen for India enough, our recent six weeks there just deepened our love for this complex, maddening and inspiring place. I can’t say what it is, but I am addicted. We sadly left Jaipur after spending day in day out with our suppliers and friends, who become somewhat of a second family while we’re away. From our supplier, Bharat, who tells us all our designs are “Marvellous!” (what an underused word that is) to our newly made expat friends in Jaipur, our time in India was incredible.

Of course, in amongst long days working, we found an early morning to do something exhilarating – hot air ballooning over the Amber Fort and surrounds… Exhilarating doesn’t really even do this justice. Magical, astounding, stunning, thrilling – nope words just don’t cut it. In a country of over a billion people, to see India from the air away from the honking horns and hordes of people, is simply unforgettable. We took off near the imposing Amber Fort, before flying over the surrounding Aravalli ranges and villages. This I will certainly never forget! If you ever make it to Jaipur, make sure you do this (details below)…

We’re now in Istanbul on the hunt for kilims, pestemals and other treasures – with a few apple tea and turkish delight breaks along the way. We’ll keep you posted!

Much love xx
