Peruvian Connection

“WHAT WE DO: a celebration of art, culture and the fabric of human existence”.
This embroidered collection is just so sweet, I can see it in a simple neutral colored interior to add that special spark of color. Even better that you’ll be supporting the artisan communities and continuation of their skills.

Peruvian Connection works in collaboration with the artisans to reinterpret their traditional craft. They also work with micro finance organizations to support the artisan communities.

Patricia Urquiola: Canasta

Wow, love the modern woven outdoor furniture collection by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia: Canasta! So chic.

Pottery Barn and Artisans

Mexican offering bowl

The intricately beaded offering bowl from Mexico has such vivid color!

“The traditional beadwork created by the Huichol (pronounced wee-chol) Indians of Nayarit and Sinaloa Mexico is an artistic expression of their spiritual beliefs. Originally they beaded small gourd bowls to use as offerings to the gods.”
