Happy Shop Small Saturday everyone!
I am beyond excited for today's blog post because I get to highlight a brand who's mission aligns perfectly with the intentional design ethos of Zan Farrow Design!
Allow me to introduce you to Variously, a sustainable textile brand based out of Detroit,Michigan. Brand founder Anjali Purohit has a background in fashion and has translated that experience into a beautiful lifestyle brand !
One of my goals in starting my business was to share products, trends, and companies that are designed to support your everyday rituals and Variously is exactly that! Their beautiful products are hand crafted in Nepal and made from environmentally friendly dyes, so cool!
When choosing artisans, it was important for Anjali to find an artisan cluster she felt she could establish a long term relationship with. It's these long-standing artisan relationships that you are able to pursue a pure concept-based design collaboration. Through this process Anjali has seen how using hand-crafted techniques can directly empower an entire cluster of artisans (usually 5 to 10 people and their families.)
This particular blanket I'm sharing is the Rosewood Throw in the shade Indigo. When I learned that the throw was made of merino I expected it to be a bit itchy but oh my goodness y'all this blanket is SO SOFT! It also comes in a gorgeous pink shade so I probably need them both!
Did I mention that 80% of the makers, designers, photographers, bloggers, merchandizers and retailers that Variously works with are women? Heck yes!!
