Links We Love: October Edition

 

It’s October, and we are embracing everything Fall! The weather has started to cool down here in New England, putting us in the mood for all things cozy. This month, we’ll be sharing incredible artists who make blankets, pillows, and other cozy features for your home and life, as well as some ways to create your own cozy works of art. Read on to see a few of our favorite warm and snuggly makers and items from around the web…

 

 

“Throwback” Rug: Though the history of striped fabric, hand-braided rugs may be more reminiscent of the past, Thorndike Mills is still preserving the history of the braided rug through their incredible and durable rugs. Their custom fabric choices and state of the art construction gives you the closest thing to an actual handmade rug.

 

Classic Coverlets and Bedding: Want bedspreads and blankets that can stand both the test of time and remain timeless? Look no further than the quality textiles produced by Maine Heritage Weavers. This team of former Bates craftsmen and women use the same equipment to weave superior quality woven bedspreads, blankets, and accessories for the home as taught to them by their parents and grandparents.

 

Simple Room Refresh: Looking for an easy way to spruce up a room—but don’t want to pay an arm and a leg, nor spend hours doing your home renovations? We’ll let you in on a secret: get a rug! Lucky for you (and us!) Apartment Therapy found the 8 Best Etsy Shops featuring your new room changer: affordable antique and vintage rugs!

 

Pasture Raised Wool Blankets: Just like it’s so important to know where your meat and produce come from, do you know what your blankets are made of—or who they might be coming from? At the Nordt Family Farm, Dianne, with her family, raises the sheep on her farm that produce the wool for her stunning merino wool blankets.

 

Cozy DIY Roundup: Feeling inspired by the beginning of such a cozy season? Want to put your own craftiness to good use? DIY Joy found 32 rug do-it-yourself projects from around the web that will certainly challenge and excite your creativity while giving your toes a reprieve from the coming cold weather!
