SponsoredGoing, going, green!
We’re thrilled that our Shelter section is being sponsored this month by our friends at VivaTerra. (You’ve no doubt already noticed VivaTerra’s new spring products and special sales promotions in the ads to the right.) You’ll be doubly thrilled, because look what you can win!
When we were choosing which particular gifts to give away, we fell in love with the many beautifully woven goods VivaTerra has right now. The Woven Wonders giveaway is the result. These editor’s picks are some of our favorites, although you’ll want to hop on over to their site to check out all their room looks – there’s a theme just right for every style, from rustic to modern to cheerfully colorful. VivaTerra is a brand we love for their support of EcoSalon and their 100% certified commitment to eco-friendliness, but beyond that, you’ll find exceptional quality and design-driven style that is singular in the world of green home furnishings.
Okay, we love them! Now, about this contest. The fine print, which we will make readable here (why is it always so fine?): One entry per person (no EcoSalon or VivaTerra staff, of course), prizes and winners selected at random, signup for our newsletter required to be counted as an entry. You can always unsubscribe once the contest is over, if you want. This contest runs through February 29th at midnight PST, and a winner will be announced the following Monday. That’s it, easy.
On to the goodies!
Swazi African Basket
Pictured above is the gorgeous hand-woven Swazi African Basket. I’m using mine to hold all my random small gadgets (Flip, iPhone charger, you know the drill), but I have anti-minimalist aspirations of a desk with an actual drawer so I can display this artistic piece on my mantle. Still, why not store everyday practical items in something that’s heirloom-level pretty? However you use it, it’s a keeper. Retails for $119, yours to win!
Wooly Night Owl
Equally perfect for the kid or kid-at-heart (or impossible-to-surprise hipster) in your life. Makes a good snuggle buddy, too. As with the Swazi basket, this beautiful owl is handwoven of organic, vegetable-dyed fibers by a fair trade women’s group sponsored by VivaTerra. Retails for $79, on sale for $55 right now if you just can’t wait for the contest results!
Lotus Hooked Pillow
We chose the Lotus hooked pillow in pink to give away since all things red, pink, and orange are so hot these days. We hope you don’t mind. 😉 Handwoven and hook stitched, this pillow is no slouch (its bolster-like down fill is both supportive and the stuff of lifetime wear). Retails for $89. (This giveaway value is getting wonderfully ridiculous, is it not? Keep scrolling.)
Woven West African Storage Basket
The Woven West African Storage Basket – we’ve chosen it in white – is just the handwoven storage trick for towels, flip flops, slippers, or, while it’s not depicted for this use, all your teetering piles of magazines and catalogs. (If you happen to be an editor, you know exactly what I’m talking about.) Retails for $59.
A colorful VivaTerra spring and summer classic, we just had to add this into the mix. The Chindi mat is stretchy, thick, so soft, and durable. And, the colorful burst is so fun. Retails for $29, on sale for just $19.
There you have it! Enter now and see what you just might win!
