Holiday Styling Tips

Holiday Styling Tips

Hosting season is upon us which can only mean one thing... It's finally the best time of the year! Holiday festivities are in full swing around here. To kick off this amazing season, we have put together a few styling tips to get you in the holiday spirit! 

LESS IS MORE

We love pairing more neutral fabrics (such as Linen, Moroccan Woolor Thai) with any of our textured pillows (Kilim, Mud Cloth, Baule)... You get the picture!

PICK A FEW SIZES

Luckily, our pillows come in all shapes and sizes. On most couches, benches or beds, pillows of different sizes can make furniture appear larger than it is. It also will give the final look more diversity.

WHITE & BLACK MUD CLOTH ARE A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

You heard it here first, folks. We will never, ever get over our love for this mix. It's a perfect combination for the more minimal heart - and they seamlessly blend with ANY holiday decor. Win win! 

BAGS & BASKETS COMPLETE ANY ROOM

Our bags and baskets are the prettiest toy haven/blanket holder you could ever ask for. There are so many ways to use your bags & baskets. When we are not carrying them around full of day-to-day objects, we are typically using them to hide the less pretty things that come with being a homeowner/parent.

ADD A VINTAGE TOUCH

Our rugs from Turkey are one-of-a-kind... and it doesn't get much better than that! Still on the fence? This photo won't help... *heart eyes* SOLD!

SPRUCE UP YOUR KITCHEN & BATHROOM

Make guests feel right at home. Our Turkish & Cotton towels bring a cozy feeling into any space. They are soft, absorbent and beautiful. Hang them nicely on a rack or fold them on your countertop. 

We hope you have a wonderful hosting season! Don't forget to treat yourself, too.

All About Injiri

All About Injiri

Injiri: a colloquial pronunciation of the world India, and derives its name from the Kalabari word for Real Madras textiles exported to West Africa from South India. 

"Started by textile designer Chinar Farooqui in 2009, Injiri works with hand-loomed textiles for clothing and the home. The label is entirely based on the idea of celebrating the process of hand-woven and handcrafted Indian textiles; the clothes are little stories about the textiles they are made of. The label believes in working within the limitations of the techniques to create beautiful products."

–– Injiri: Aesthetic Movement

"On a piece of paper, Chinar Farooqui illustrates her impressions of recent journeys. The colors, lines, shapes, lighting, and shadows all materialize onto the surface from vivid images in her mind. She then takes her work to the weavers’ houses. Using traditional textiles as references for techniques, she develops textile patterns side by side with skilled weavers on their wooden looms.

For Farooqui’s home and fashion label, Injiri, everything begins with textile design. Instead of searching for fabrics on the market, Farooqui always makes her own fabrics from scratch. Patterns and styles first take shape on the traditional hand looms, and from there, she cuts her textiles into garments and home goods."

–– Minzuu

These gorgeous Injiri fabrics are made entirely by hand – from weaving and dyeing to the last trims and finishes; it passes through the hands of craftspeople from various parts of India utilizing traditional skills and techniques that differ from region to region. There may be slight irregularities in the fabrics due to the weaving and dyeing process. 

We, at Mae Woven, fell in love with the beauty and thoughtful patterns of these gorgeous fabrics. We are beyond excited to share them with you!
