This year we decided to do a Thanksgiving special photo shoot. We picked our orange paisley print, Indian Summer, tablecloth. It doesn’t seem to be an obvious choice this time of the year, based on our sales data, but it lends itself nicely to the colors of the season, and we are hopeful that seeing the tablecloth in context will motivate more of our customers to try it for their holiday celebrations.
Spice Route, our signature Indian Moroccan inspired print, has been a perennial favorite for many years now. This season we decided to pay our respects to this print by re-photographing it. You can see the end results on the Spice Route collections page.
