Get to Know: Musee

Can you believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone?! We definitely can’t. With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s now time to start planning for the rest of the year’s holiday festivities and getting serious about our gift lists. We have a new brand in the shop that’s a great addition to any relaxation lover’s list: Musee.

Musee is company based out of Madison County, Mississippi that creates handmade, all natural bath balms.

While a lot of bath products contain artificial fragrances and ingredients that aren’t so friendly to your skin, Musee’s bath balms are made from all natural ingredients, aromas and oils. For example, one of their balms, Whiskey Lullaby, is made from Sesame oil, lemon and eucalyptus essential oils, pacific sea salt, rose hips, ginseng, & vitamin C. Soothing to your skin and to your senses- is there really anything better?

Another thing that’s cool about their balms is that some of them contain a little surprise inside, making them perfect for bath time for the kids!

We love this excerpt from their site, explaining what Musee is really all about: “The muses from tales of long ago brought inspiration through the gift of song and lyric. Musee bath balms remind us to enjoy the simple pleasures in life that serenade the heart and comfort the soul – good books and long naps, fireflies and bonfires, handwritten letters and unexpected presents, a spring rain or the first snowflake of winter, owls on fences and wise people – and especially….hot baths and cool tunes.”

We have a new textile brand in the shop that you’re going to love…and it goes by the name of Walter G. Let’s learn a bit about them!

This Australian-owned and Sydney-based brand was founded by two best friends, Lauren Emerson and Genevieve Hewson.

Lauren and Genevieve spent two years traveling extensively together to places such as India, South America and Vietnam, learning as much as they could about the textiles and techniques of these regions while they were there. They even spent 6 months living in India living in remote villages, immersing themselves in the arts of indigo and block printing. How cool is that?!

They made their debut at Life Instyle in Sydney in 2012, and the rest is history.

The owners describe their brand as “lived-in, imperfect, timeless, relaxed, and artisanal”. They design all of their patterns and develop them right alongside a team of Indian artisans, and all of their textiles are completely hand-blocked, which is so awesome.

They offer fabrics, pillows, and table linens. Take a look at some of the different patterns available!

Pillows:

Fabrics: they offer their different fabrics in canvas, cotton and linen.

Table linens: (absolutely adorable and perfect for a beach house!)tl

 

Their fabrics are very versatile and can be easily mixed in with different styles to create a stylish, casual look, and this is just a glimpse of the patterns they offer!

There’s some pretty great info on their website regarding the indigo and block printing processes that are used to create their products. Definitely worth checking out!

We’re so happy to have Walter G’s beautiful textiles in the shop, and we hope you’ll stop by to see them!

Get to Know: Hawkins New York
Comments Off on Get to Know: Hawkins New York

This week we’re excited to introduce a new brand that we’ve recently started carrying called Hawkins New York. Let’s find out more about them:

hny

Hawkins NY is a curated lifestyle brand based out of, you guessed it, New York. They design their own products, but also work with other designers to help them get their work out to the market. This is important because a lot of designers may be unable to find the most suited manufacturers for their products otherwise.

The Hawkins NY team is experienced in dealing with producers all over the world, so they know which products should be made where and with which manufacturers they should be made by. This takes that long and potentially difficult process of choosing a manufacturer out of the equation and allows the designers to focus just on creating innovative designs.

 

They carry a wide variety of products, from glass/dinnerware:

dgware

 

to lighting

LightsHNY

 

to quilts/throws

btq

 

to really cool candlestickscandle

 

to rugs (we carry these ‘Shapes Rugs’ in all colors in the shop!)

rugshny

 

to linen tea towels (we carry these in the shop, as well!)

tt

and lots more! Come check out the Hawkins New York products that we have in the shop, and you can see everything else they carry on their website. Have a happy Thursday!
