Fall has officially been here for a few weeks already & we've been hard at work launching our 5 new blanket designs, as well as a series of wall hangings handmade by our founder Talia. The transition into the new season has been quick and busy - we're just now noticing the gradual slowing down, the days getting crisper & those layering pieces starting to make their way into our clothing rotation :)
We wanted to take a moment and celebrate the coming season(s) of being cozy with a short reading list. We hope these books keep you warm in the days to come!
