Eclectic Modern Global Interiors with Handwoven African Textiles

Anyone can easily create warm, eclectic interiors with handwoven textiles. The organic patterns and textures add visual interest without over-powering other pieces. Rooms come alive with blankets and throws slung over beds and sofas for easy, eclectic comfort. Most of all, African handwoven blankets and throws, such as Fulani and Hausa blankets, add warmth and a sense of place. They transform any space into the domain of the well-traveled and the globe-trotter.
