Best Moments of 2015!

Posted on January 04, 2016 by Hana Getachew


This past year surpassed my wildest expectations! I launched Bolé Road in May which I've been dreaming and scheming about for years. And since then we've completed 5 shows, 3 collections, 1 epic trip to Ethiopia and got some press and support along the way.   I couldn't help but put together this list of best moments of 2015!

1. In February we launched our landing page and started our journey as Bolé Road Textiles!
2. In the beginning of May we officially launched at BKLYN DESIGNS debuting two collections:  Indigenous Blooms and Modern Classics.

3. Later in May we were lucky enough to have Justina Blakeney of The Jungalow use our pillows for her Living Yellow space at Dwell on Design.

4. In July, probably the highlight of my year, I was asked to be included in Design*Sponge's new book In the Company of Women!  I'm still in awe of this one!!!

5. September, if I wasn't already totally indebted to Design*Sponge, I was fortunate  enough to be featured in their Life and Business column!  Not to mention being featured for What's In Your Toolbox in December!

6. Later in September, I was finally able to travel to Ethiopia to finish out my third collection and connect with some amazing new artisans

7.  In addition to BKLYN DESIGNS, I participated in three Renegade Craft Fair shows!  I debuted the Heritage Collection at the Holiday Fair in November.

8.  I finished the year off at Bklyn Flea where I met some amazing clients.  I also was so excited to be included in a few gift guides during the holiday season!
Thank you to everyone who's joined me on this journey.  Let's get ready for another spectacular year!
