Kobeiagi Kilims

Architect Ivana Blaž and designer/illustrator Nina Mršnik founded Kobeiagi Kilims in the Balkans after studying around the world. Their beautiful works are all based on the traditional hand woven technique that yields what is called a Kilim. Kilims are traditionally used for anything from a rug to a blanket to a saddle. The kilims made by Kobeiagi Kilims are sourced, woven and sold all within a 20km radius, making it a real locally made product for the inhabitants of Visoko, Bosnia. For the amount of work that goes into these kilims, their prices are reasonable. These would feel so organic and beautiful in any home.

Charlotte Smith Studios

Designed by Charlotte Smith

Hailing from a family of artisans in Mississippi, Charlotte Smith has set up shop in down town Atlanta. She now makes handmade cups that focus on functionality but show off her sculptural technique. Charlotte hopes that her cups work together as a collective piece creating conversation rather than individuals. Her work is very reasonably priced so I would definitely recommend that you visit her site and explore her shop.
