Gorgeous Handmade Decor For Kid’s Rooms

Wool Fabrique: Modern, Handmade Children’s Decor From Bosnia

I went on a whirl­wind trip to Play­time Paris last week­end and just had to share my ‘coup du coeur’ with all of you. There’s always so much to see at these events that it’s dif­fi­cult to do jus­tice to every designer, prod­uct, or booth. I tend to run the aisles quickly, trust­ing my instincts and hop­ing to find some­thing that will make me stop in my tracks. And I did.

Wool Fab­rique is a new Franco-Bosnian com­pany offer­ing a small yet excit­ing range of rugs, bas­kets, bags and cush­ions that are per­fect for a kid’s room (or any mod­ern space in need of pat­tern and color).

Every­thing is designed by Maya Bekto, a cin­ema styl­ist with a pas­sion for tra­di­tional East­ern Euro­pean crafts and mother to two lit­tle boys. Her sis­ter Vesna over­sees the pro­duc­tion process in Bosnia and Herze­gov­ina. Wool Fab­rique is very much a fam­ily affair.

It’s easy to see that the two sis­ters are com­mit­ted to reviv­ing the art of tra­di­tional rug and basket-making tech­niques. They are also deter­mined to sup­port the Bosn­ian com­mu­nity by mak­ing sure that the skilled craftswomen they use are rec­og­nized for their work and paid accord­ingly (the com­pany is in the process of obtain­ing Fair Trade certification).

The com­pany is fledg­ling, as is its web­site. Many of the prod­ucts I saw in Paris are not online yet but will be avail­able soon. I fell in love with their huge, fluffy cush­ions and bold car­pet designs, bang on trend in Europe.

Hand­wo­ven from pure wool, their prod­ucts are per­fect for a child’s room. The pil­lows are made to be tossed around, the rugs to be played on, and the bas­kets to be filled with toys. Like any good kilim, the more wear the better.

I have a feel­ing that Wool Fab­rique will go far. Their prod­ucts are eye-catching, eco-conscious and beau­ti­fully made. They have a soul. Con­tact Maya via the Wool Fab­rique if you are inter­ested in find­ing out more.
