In case you’ve missed it, we are featured in Sara & Rich Combs new book, At Home in Joshua Tree, which is a lifestyle guide all about high-desert living including their design principles, wellness practices and entertaining rituals.
We first met Sarah & Rich when we approached them about shooting at their incredible Airbnb property. We wanted a new place to shoot our rugs and once we saw their house we knew it was a match made in heaven. Fast forward a year and a half and Sara & Rich have become our friends AND have written a book! In it they discuss their life in the high-desert and also include an incredible collection of artists and fellow desert dwellers who share their expertise and personal experiences.
We are so grateful to have our rugs and story shared in At Home in Joshua Tree. In the book we share a mini rug guide in which we discuss the difference between 10 types of Moroccan rugs. To the untrained eye many Moroccan rugs may look similar but there are distinct differences between all of them. Depending on the region or tribe where a particular rug is made the weaving techniques, color saturation and type of wool used will vary. In addition to these differences, there are a variety of symbols that can be found in the rugs, which we discussed in a previous blog post.
Last weekend our collective, The Shops at 1345, hosted a holiday shopping event. Sara & Rich were there to sign copies of their new book, and we had an amazing turnout. If you were able to stop by, thank you! If not, we still have signed copies in the shop for sale, so stop by, say hi and pick up a copy (and a rug?)!
