KHADI

 

Let us surely be among the first to introduce you to the Khadi textiles of India. Woven into jacquard like designs by hand from “old world cotton.”

 

Where they come from!

Khadi is a bit different from the more common plain loom cotton wovens from India. Spun by hand from cotton grown exclusively in India, Khadi is more than a practice, it is a representation of India’s independence from the industrial movements that threatened its economy in the early 20th century. Today, Khadi cotton textiles are still hand loomed and hand spun by rural villagers with cotton from rural farmers. The entire process requires zero energy, making it one of the most sustainable textiles in the world.

In fact Mahatma Gandhi used to spin cotton for Khadi and he started the movement as a relief effort for India’s poor masses.

Why we love ’em!

We fell in love with the abstract plaids and graphic florals of the khadi textiles in our collection. The slub of the handspun cotton provides that organic quality that we crave in our home linens and textiles of late, and has people asking us “where did you get that.” We love to reply “INDIA!”

How to decorate with it!

Here are a number of examples of this in practice.

Khadi makes for an excellent tabletop addition. Perhaps you will gain ideas for your upcoming Thanksgiving table!

Here, Sarah mixes a Khadi pillow with some African Indigo and a new Indian Block Print, proving that the textile plays well with others in our collection!

Ah, more lovely table top. The organic slub that is indicative of handspun & handwoven textiles is a dear quality, and one that we crave. It brings texture and age into a setting, helping your home to feel more layered, collected and complex.

 

 

Tonight’s the night for a special event. We’ll be serving Strawberry Moscow Mules and chatting Global Textiles! Bring a Friend and you get 25% off.

YEAR END SALE

Hi friends.

We are hosting our first ever clearance sale at TEOT.

Sarah and I are both aiming to move a lot of the current collection out to make way for the next batch of goodies. We are ever thirsty for new designs, new vibes, new mixes, new TEOTy good stuff for 2017.

Our constant desire for newnew, is your opportunity to save!

Here is a quick rundown of what is going down.

Online – everything is 25% off. Use coupon code TREATYOURSELF at checkout.
In Store – everything is 25% off, unless otherwise marked with a further discount. For example Furniture floor models are a MUST-GO and are marked down to 40%.

If you do not live in the Southern Pines, NC area, but you are interested in a large furniture item, you should definitely holler at us and we’ll see what we can arrange. We’ve marked these items down on Chairish as well, which provides great White Glove delivery for large items at a very fair price. (aka, much cheaper than any that we can arrange since they do such high volume shipping.)

If you were the lucky recipient of a TEOT Gift Card, it applies.

Also, I will be posting a selection of sale items to the @shopteot Instagram page & The Estate of Things on Facebook – with special prices for our followers. So, get on that here!

Stay tuned for more and go get your shop on.
