Since we moved into our home last August, I haven’t had a dedicated crafting space. Most everything just gets done on the couch with a very large nest of supplies all around me (and Netflix in the background, of course!) I finally took the time this week to set up and organize my work space. It’s not 100% finished, but I thought I’d share a sneak peek with you!
I received this handmade herringbone basket (link here) from Uncommon Goods last week and have completely fallen in love with it! It’s the perfect size because it can hold all the yarn I need for my many WIPs (there always seems to be so many of them!!) and still be portable. It fits perfectly wherever I’m working, whether in my actual craft space or on the couch, which is more likely if I’m being honest. :)
The thing I love most is the story behind the product. With most companies, you order something and have no insight into the designing process or where the product originated. With Uncommon Goods, you can see not only the designer of the product, but the inspiration and story behind it. My basket was designed by Leslie Mittelberg, an artist who is passionate about bringing “independence to rural African communities.” It was made using cattails and plastic recycled from prayer mats and rugs.
It’s so rare to find a company that truly cares about their products and designers. Uncommon Goods is a company I can feel really good about purchasing from. Half of what they sell is made by hand and most of it is produced here in the USA. They also pride themselves on working in harmony with the environment. One third of their entire collection is made from recycled or upcycled materials. How cool is that??
I’m already scoping out my next purchase from Uncommon Goods. They've got tons of other home decor items that have me swooning (link here)! We’ve been in our home for almost a year now and the walls and beds are still pretty empty. I’m going to look into purchasing some art (link here) and bedding (link here) from them in the very near future!
Happy Tuesday everyone! Stay tuned for a more detailed tour of my craft space once it’s completely done!
