Why I love 'em | They are the perfect way to add color to a room! Each one has it's own unique texture, color, and shape as they are handmade. 

Where they are from | Our Wild Poppy Goods Indigo throws are sourced from Mali, Africa. 

History behind indigo throws | This vibrant color of indigo has a rich history that dates back thousands of years. The Dogon people of Mali have used this natural dye process that has been passed down through generations. Archeological sites in Mali have discovered textile fragments dating as far back as the 11th century! 

How they are made | Weave cloths are prepared and dyed in large vats by women, which is a time consuming process. When buying vintage indigo throws, you'll know that only natural dye has been used as opposed to the synthetic dye being used nowdays

Update: What's New at Wild Poppy Goods

Oh, hey there! It has been a while, hasn't it!? Here are a few favorites currently on the site. 

1. The Calder Necklace, made by Young Frankk, is hands down my favorite piece of jewelry in the shop right now. We've almost sold out, but there is one left! Better snag it up before I do because I am preeeetty tempted. Seriously. The perils of owning a small business ;) 

2. These matching earrings are pretty rad as well. Pair with just about anything for an instant cool girl look.  

3. This bowl from Forged & Found is perfect for so many things. I just love the soft white color and the organic shape! 

4. Mid Century brass goblets... I mean, come on! How good are these? I love that they have just the right amount of shine to them, and the texture makes them have a more natural and casual vibe. 

5. Lauren (my amazing studio mate and owner of Lauren Winter) modeling an early 1950s bias cut dress. Isn't it so lovely with those art deco inspired details!?  

6. This 1960s wiggle eyelet dress is surly stunner. If it were my size, I'd seriously snatch it up in a hot second. It's the right amount of sexy, comfortable, cute, and.... it is SUPER flattering. 

New Arrivals from Forged & Found


This week we added some beautiful ceramics that are handmade in Athens, Georgia by Forged & Found. What I most admire about her work is the element of uniqueness, in that no items are the exact same. There is a quiet elegance about her work; one that is both playful and beautiful at the same time. Another plus? You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to own a piece with meaning. Prices range from $16 - $40 per product. 

If you are a Palo Santo lover like myself, these incense huts are a must. I love watching the smoke rise from the top! Her ceramic cheese boards are a kitchen essential as they are so beautiful yet durable and easy to clean. And, while we are on the topic of kitchen essentials, aren't these salt cellars so cute? They are great to have out on the table or by the stove for a quick pinch of salt. Or if you aren't much of a home cook, they sure look good with a few rings inside 'em, too.  Shop the entire collection here -------- 

How to: Style a Coffee Table

Chairish recently reached out to me about creating a style board centered around one of their coffee tables. There were so many great ones to choose from, but I decided on this beautiful French antique pine coffee table as a base for my style board. I love how much history and rustic charm it has! A coffee table is the center of any living room, so the goal is to make it stylish and functional. Add something structural like this rounded footed bowl. It's the perfect contrast to this very angular table and it can hold a ton of things such as polaroids, remotes, and other small trinkets. This ceramic open hand is perfect for holding palo santo, rings, or sage. Add a plant for a touch of life and color. Airplants are beautiful and really easy to take care of. With a coffee table this rustic, it's good to mix in some metal accents like these brass coasters to break up the styles. A beautiful candle is a must -- and don't forget the matches! Since they will be on display, use cute vintage matchboxes or find cutes ones like theseYou can never have too many art books. Trust me on this one. They serve as a piece of art, give guests something to look through, and add a whole lot of personality. And let's be honest, make you seem much more interesting. Wink wink. My picks are Frida Kahlo photographs and Union mag. And to tie it all together, add the perfect rug for texture and warmth!
