Some time ago, West Elm tapped me to design a collection for their site. Two years and 30 artisans later, plus many more helping hands, I'm excited to introduce: Bolé Road x West Elm!
I am so proud of the work our artisans have created. This collab features pillows and bed runners woven in Ethiopia by our partners. The pieces can be found exclusively on westelm.com
What I appreciate about this collection is that through a few design tweaks, we're able to offer our pillows at an accessible price point.
Inserts are sold separately, so be sure to purchase one if needed. Pro tip: I recommend choosing one that is 2" larger than your pillow size!
The collection also features an indoor / outdoor assortment! These pieces were not produced in Ethiopia, but so many of you have asked about outdoor pillows and rugs that I thought I'd give it a try!
It's always been my dream to share Ethiopian craftsmanship with the world – and this is one big step to making it come true. It blows my mind that our handwoven pieces may land in homes throughout the country.
Thank you to everyone who helped us get to this point! WE did it!!!
With deepest gratitude,
