Brahms/Mount Textiles handmade in the USA


BrMt1.jpg BrMt2.jpg

From two islands, worlds apart, Claudia Brahms (Ireland) and Noel Mount (New York City) came together in Maine, and began to weave American yarns into luxurious textiles. They design and weave blankets, throws, pillow covers and tote bags from all natural cotton, linen and alpaca blends, and use Crompton and Knowles looms that date back to the 1940’s.

BrMt3.jpgStargazer (L) woven in their own small mill in Maine, is a throw comprised of cotton, Alpaca and merino wool. Cliff House (R), a personal day blanket is half cotton, half linen. With each blanket or throw purchase, you can also receive a linen journal with 40 pages of hand-made paper, for only $5.

Visit brahmsmount.com for more info, and take a peek at their personal art gallery, as well. (another green granny find!)

Keep Your Feet Warm with Organic Socks

I am guilty of spending – frankly – a lot of money at sockdreams.com. Little did I realize that I could get organic socks from them in addition to all my stylish leggings. They carry Two Brothers Organic Products, a responsible company that prints their labels on 100% recycled paper and donates a portion of proceeds to environmental preservation.

These slouchy socks fit sizes 9-11 and are composed of 86% organic cotton, 13% cotton, and 1% spandex. At only $7 and available in white, black, natural, and navy, purchasing these socks is a great way to tell Sock Dreams that you’d like them to carry more organic products.
