i came across one of my new favorite websites, project bly scours the worlds best markets and sells one of a kind treasures online, right from the vendors hands to theirs, to ours. the website tells the story of craftsmen and photo logs their journey’s giving the buyer a clear depiction of where the items are from, who makes them, and how their made. i often claim my passion for marrying travel and design… sure, for these you may not have a personal story to go with, but you do have it’s story and sense of it’s history. i argue that receiving a hand woven rug from marrakech might be the tool that kicks my ass onto plane to go see for myself. p.s. the prices aren’t half bad.
