The pieces in the Indigenous Blooms collection are especially dear to my heart since their designs were the very first ones I created for Bolé Road Textiles. Using flowers found in Ethiopia as inspiration, I thought about ways of translating their beauty through design, sketched all my ides down on paper, then went to Ethiopia to find the artisans who ultimately helped me bring them to life.
Glancing on our site, you know that not only are all the pillows in the Indigenous Blooms collection inspired by the flowers of Ethiopia, but they're also named after them. I thought it would be fun to put together all of the flower namesakes. Have a look. And may they inspire you the way they've inspired me. For more on our inspiration, take a peek at our lookbook.
