A Mayan Wedding

Posted by Molly Berry on

During a production meeting a few months back, one of the weavers that I work with, Carlos, shyly handed me an envelope addressed to my family. He nodded at me to open it and when I did, I saw that it was an invitation to his wedding. "Congratulations! You're engaged? This is so exciting!"

Process + Production : The Luna Zorro Casco Collection

Posted by Molly Berry on

We are very excited to release our latest capsule collection of throw pillows and throw blankets. Affectionately named after "El Casco Viejo" in Panama, the Casco Collection embodies the warm, neutral, earthy colors that we love right now - dust, rose and mustard, emboldened with cream and black.
