See the tiny black marks woven into this rug? They take an ordinary object and transform it into something beautiful and unique. We see each black thread as a symbol of forgiveness and grace. We all have a little darkness woven into our souls, but we become beautiful when we forgive ourselves and grant ourselves permission to see our mistakes as part of the big picture. No matter what we have in our past, we are still lovable, just as we are. Looking at this rug will remind you that even if you make the same mistake more than once, you are still on a path to beauty and redemption. Forgiveness is the way. Stand on this rug and set yourself free.
100% Sheep's Wool. The yarn itself is literally spun by hand by female weavers in Ecuador!
One Size. Measurements: 3' x 5'
Colors and design chosen by Mara. Made by traditional weaver artisans in Ecuador. And get this: women carry a bag of wool and a spindle with them everywhere they go, and spin, spin away to make yarn. The yarn is then woven by hand on an antique wooden loom.
Notes from other women:
"Box 3 of 3 arrived yesterday, from which I pulled out yet another sweater, and squealed with glee. (I may have gone a little nutso during this sale.) Bravo to you for a beautiful first collection. Since I’ve sampled just about every corner of your store, I feel authorized to report that each product is absolutely perfect in its unique way. The wools are flattering and sooooo comfortable, the leather is (I love my Circle of Women bag!) and the totes are solid and striking. I am just blown away by the quality and design of each product and can’t wait to see what you offer next at the Shop (read: those boots!).
And while I’m gushing, bravo to you for creating a shop that so well aligns with your brand, with the insights and stories you’ve share on your blog and podcasts. Sleep well knowing your customers love you right back. 😍" -Rachael
