Khadi Redux –

Jan 30, 2010 | 2 Comments

Khadi was the subject of one of my early blog posts back in 2007 and I think this may be the first time I’ve come across it again. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen or felt the real thing in person but it’s definitely developing a mystique, at least in my book! Pictured above is a khadi hand towel from Pale and Interesting (via Nabe Fabric.)

Remodelista has recently expanded their website to include a dedicated section for a great collection of textile and fabric companies, like Society Limonta whose table linens are pictured above.

…And though the voting period for “best home blog of the year” has already ended over at Apartment Therapy you can still express support for Remodelista (one of the top contenders) by exploring their ever expanding website!

Dream Destinations + Sarajo –

Jan 11, 2010 | Leave a Comment

A two-fold post:

1) I’ve found what might be the ultimate Indian travel experience for textile lovers, Marieke Brugman’s “15 day Exotic Odyssey through Gujarat in Western India”, schedule for February 13th – 27th of this year. It looks completely amazing, as do all of her other trips. Oh, to be free to travel like that!

2) For all those limited (like me) to their arm chairs and computer screens there’s some consolation in exploring the beautiful website Sarajo. It features textiles from all over the world, including Gujarat. Above, a 19th skirt panel from the region.
