Oslo, Fanfare, Code, Azi, Division Rugs

Code words? Nah, just a bunch of rugs. A certain retailer just released a slew of new products, and I've got to say, they're killing it in the rug department. All of the rugs are affordable, so don't expect silk or anything made with unicorn hair, but just take a look and tell me you don't think they're a decent bunch of patterned rugs. I dare you. (If you should ...Read more

UNDO Laces

So, did you know that a shoe creates a lot of environmental damage? Raw materials plus an intense manufacturing process means that those things we wear on our feet have a big carbon footprint (typical shoe = 30 pounds of CO2). Alarming, isn't it? UNDO Laces aims to offset that carbon footprint by purchasing credits from a wind energy, solar energy or reforestation project on your behalf. You get a pair of ...Read more
