Peace Industry

Today my Peace Industry rug arrived! Peace Industry was formed by a couple who wanted to help bring the age-old (and dwindling) art of felted rugmaking to the masses by combining modern new designs with ancient techniques. They are designed in California and made by Iranian rug makers. I believe new rug makers are being trained now as these have become more popular so the tradition is not going away soon, hurray! These are all wool and super thick and durable, Melina tells me they are doing well with families who are worried about longevity of a rug around young children, also they are made with natural dyes and are chemical free. Come check it out if you are curious what these feel like, I am working on getting a swatch set so you can order your own rug here in New York.

I have one more announcement - right after Jill's show, we have lined up Deadly Squire for the month of November. Deadly Squire's show is titled "Hayo Makamak" which boils down to "High Muck-a-muck" in English and so they are going to recreate a feast that such a person might throw...all made out of their fabrics. Yes, Deadly Squire turkeys and pumpkins and the like. I'll get the press release up soon!

Deadly Squire also has a show coming up called Converter - opening October 19 in Williamsburg. I will see you there!

Store restocks: Polli jewelry and mobiles and also a new silk dress from Talla which will be really cute at a holiday party.
