Introducing: The Granny Collection

Kate's grandmother, Frances

Introducing the Granny Collection, this group of handwoven flatweave rugs was a team collaboration inspired by the names, smells, tastes, and memories of our very own grandmas.

Over the next month we'll be highlighting the designs in this collection, which we lovingly call Grammy, Vovo, Nona and Halmoni. For the next four Fridays we will be sharing these rugs with you as well as some stories of the real life grandmothers that they were named after. Now without further ado, we'd like you to say hello to the Grammy!

Grammy is our take on the square pattern repeat that is often seen in crochet blankets. It reads as a fun take on a textural checkerboard while adding just the right touch of coziness to your floors. We have sampled this design in a variety of colors but it is simple to customize for your own project's palette.

Grammy comes in 7 colors. See all the Grammy Rugs here








We called her Grandmommy Frances — although it is certain that she would have liked a spunkier nickname!

Never one to be told she could not do something, my grandmother took flying lessons in her 20's, raised 4 children (with 18 years between the oldest and youngest), taught me how to make sushi (keep in mind I grew up in South Carolina in the 1980's) and was bodysurfing the SC and NC beaches straight into her 80's.

I'd say she definitely taught me to go after my dreams, and to say bugger off to anyone who questioned them.

Charlotte's grandmother, nicknamed Mimi

My beautiful grandma Charlotte is my namesake, but I always called her Mimi.

She loved antiques and had her own collection in an antique shop with her friends. My mom said she was half antique dealer and half therapist, listening patiently and lending her wise advice to anyone who stopped by for a chat.

Mimi collected cookbooks and read them instead of novels. This recipe for Bacon Dressing was her way of getting my mom and her brothers to eat their spinach!
