In Living Colour
If John Lennon were alive today, we think he’d want us to give Peace Silk a chance too.
The most eco-friendly silk available, it’s the key material in the colourful designs by new Vancouver-based home textiles company, Rajboori.
The collaboration between New York industrial designer Stephen Burks (the Missoni perfume bottle is one of his creations) and local-by-way-of-Calcutta entrepreneur Mitun Chakrabarti, Rajboori uses age-old craftsmanship to create modern bedding. Every bright geometric piece that goes into one of their cool coverlets (pictured, $600) is spun on family looms in India.
A blanket that’s sustainable and supports small artisan communities—we feel warm and fuzzy.
