SCENTED CANDLES IN CERAMIC POTS

We are delighted to introduce our new line of scented candles in ceramic pottery. The pots are individually hand thrown and glazed in a gamut of earthy colors—each one perfectly imperfect and unique. Our first scent—Flor de Coco. 

Synonymous with the holidays, Flor de Coco (as it is known locally) is a large inflorescence pulled from a native palm tree in late spring and used to decorate Christmas trees and nativity scenes—a tradition unique to Paraguay.​

As it slowly opens in December, it releases a sweet, floral scent that fills every home and brings with it the anticipation of Christmas and a new year ahead.

THROWS & BEDSPREADS

Our blankets and throws are made of simple, unhurried things—of cotton and kindness, of the slow, steady rhythm of hands and feet plying the large handmade looms, of imperfectness and quiet, of dyes created on site, the dyed yarn drying under the sun on lines just beyond the looms, of family and sincerity,
of traditions humble and unbroken.

Over time, they grow soft and supple, consoling and gentle. A beauty born of authenticity and the vitality of process. Our blankets are made for living, meant to be used, to grow with you, its character changing over time quietly in the background of your beautiful story.

ECO-FRIENDLY RUGS & FLOOR BLANKETS

Our rugs come from leftover scraps gathered from the floors
of apparel manufacturers. Sorted by color and bound into bales, the preserved pieces of remnant fabric are carried to the countryside, cut by hand into ribboned strands, and readied for
a second life.

The work of the loom is rough-hewn and repetitive, made beautiful by the considerate hand and careful eye of the artisan. Simple, steady  movements of an old process combined with unassuming scraps of fabric create the warmth of character,
gentle drape, and wide versatility of our layering rugs and
floor blankets.

COTTON HAMMOCKS

Hammocks have long been part of the history of Paraguay. The Guaraní, whose bloodline is shared by nearly everyone in the country, call them ‘keha’, meaning ‘place to sleep’.

Through generations they mastered the art of hand-knotting using coconut fibers, grasses, and cotton. The advent of the hand-loom allowed for faster production of a similarly sturdy sling, but didn’t diminish or replace the old way of knotting; rather, it added to the depth and range of an already deep artisanal culture.

Our hammocks, whether knotted or loomed, bear the exquisite, unwritten signature of the artisan who made it and the history from which it came.
