pattern spy: woven

pattern spy woven with tassles // smitten studiopattern spy woven with tassles // smitten studioI love it when modern designers and artists breath new life into an age old traditional craft, especially when the result is anything like each of these wondrous woven works of art. The textural pattern from hand woven pieces can make my heart skip a beat and anytime I come across one of Native Vine’s gorgeous wall hangings it really goes all aflutter (I covet every piece). And how about that top and necklace?! I’d say they’re both even frame worthy!

pattern spy: marbled

I just ordered this planner (I can’t wait to get my hands on it), and I am seriously contemplating that dress and that pillow. This wallpaper is pretty amazing too. How much marble is too much marble? I can’t stop!

pattern spy: handira / moroccan wedding blanket

pattern spy // Moroccan Wedding Blanket The Moroccan wedding blanket, aka Handira, is no new trend, the muted color palette, the mix of textures, and a little bit of sparkle is a winning combination that is coveted by many for their home.

Traditionally these textiles were woven by a Berber bride’s female relatives to be used and worn in a wedding ceremony and they are now often used as blankets, wall hangings, rugs, throws, and some people have made smaller pieces into pillows like above. There is no denying their influence on that sassy little mini skirt either. Happy Handira shopping.
