Maintain a sense of cheerful warmth in your home even as summer’s balmy temperatures begin to fade. Our popular Indian Summer print takes its inspiration from silk saris and exotic locales.

Cozy Up on Chilly Evenings

Shortening days means longer nights – and more time to cozy up at home. Savor a glass of merlot wine and stave off the chill with the bold colors and intricate details of our Ruby Kilim bedding.

Traditional dying techniques create this impactful look, using wooden blocks painstakingly carved by hand. The Ruby Kilim print’s deep crimson hue lends it to work equally well with warm and cool color palettes. Use a matched set for a powerful punch of color, or mix and match with neutrals to make lighter details really pop.

Add a Pinch of Spice

Long before pumpkin spice lattes became ubiquitous, trade routes wound their way across continents sharing rich harvests of luxurious spices. Our elaborate yet subtle Spice Route print is inspired by this history.

Spice Route features a floral filigree motif of cinnamon, turmeric, and imperial blue. A rich inlaid background of saffron and mace hints at baroque tradition.

From afar, the visual impact of Spice Route’s contrasting colors is undeniable. Looking closer, the incredible artistry behind every inch of the soft cotton fabric becomes apparent. A yearly favorite, the warmth of tropical lands and bountiful flavors will bring a unique elegance into any space.

  1. Hi, I have some of your gorgeous curtains (bought a few years ago). I am wondering if they can be machine washed or if I need to get them dry cleaned. Please advise!
    Thanks,

    • Hi Julia,
      Let us know which print you have. Most of our prints are washable, but you’re right – some do need to be drycleaned.
