In Process

2/28/2014



It definitely feels like the beginning of spring on the island today. The quiet post-holiday period has ended here at Grain and we are ramping up each week with final details for the textiles, ceramics, lighting, and furniture that we will be launching in May at ICFF. Above and below is a sneak peak into our in-process studio world.

Pillow Talk

2/20/2014



With a new shipment just in from Guatemala, we are officially stocked up in both sizes of our Comalapa, Jaspé, and Laguna pillows ($118.00 - $198.00). Handwoven of naturally dyed cotton in the Guatemalan Highlands, each one of these beauties is totally unique. 

All our pillows are responsibly made by textile artisans using traditional Mayan weaving techniques such as jaspé and falseria. See more process images on our Facebook page here. See all of our Guatemalan made textiles here

Spotted on Lonny

2/19/2014



We so love the work of local interior designer Brian Paquette and just had to post these photos of his recently completed family home in Seattle. They were on Lonny yesterday and include an appearance of our Jaspé and Laguna pillows. Best piece of advice from Brian: "buy good textiles, lighting and upholstery and take time to build your art collection." We couldn't agree more. Learn more about Brian here or follow his beautiful Instagram feed here. Photos by Belathée Photography.

Grain partners, Chelsea and James Minola, often get asked what it is like to run a business as a couple. In honor of the month of love, Vanessa interviews Chelsea (see below) on just that subject.
