A blog on modern living

We offer home decor that is so much more than an accent. We develop unique items of exceptional quality you can feel good about giving as gifts—or having in your own home. We seek details like hand-carved stone or wool from American ranches, and bring you items you can't find anywhere else. Read on for three of our favorite gifts with stories you'll be proud to share.

Kisii handmade bowl in soapstone

Kisii Stone Bowls

These asymmetric soapstone bowls are handmade by artisans in Kenya through The Blessing Basket Project®. Each bowl takes two full days to cut, carve and polish by hand. Artisans in The Blessing Basket Project receive at least 2.5 times the Fair Trade Wage, helping them provide for their families and invest in their own businesses. 

Cria wool throw made in American

Cria Throw Blanket

The yarn for this pointelle pattern throw comes from alpacas and sheep raised on sprawling ranches in Oregon; the fleece they produce is exceptionally soft and smooth. After shearing, the yarn is woven and finished in New England. Thanks to textile artisans from coast to coast, these exclusive throws tell a uniquely American story from start to finish.
