When August rolls around, it can suddenly feel like a rapid descent into fall. Not if we can help it. It's an endless summer in our home thanks to these crocheted straw throw pillows from Mar Y Sol.
Beyond bringing the look and feel of sunshine and ocean breezes, these comfy pillows have a social conscience that makes themall the more beautiful. Mar Y Sol works with artisans in Madagascar who use renewable materials indigenous to the island to crochet and stitch each one by hand. Sales of these Fair Trade pillows give these women economic independence and promote environmental conservation in their homeland.
Sayulita is a burst of golden yellow that adds a touch of sun to any space. It's made of individually crocheted canary circles stitched to a rafia background. We heart a pillow that brightens your world not just with color, but with a goodwill mission, too.
