Spring is our favorite time of the year for refreshing our home décor. This season, we’ve been incorporating woven pieces into our homes to easily and effortlessly add texture to any room. The Little Market, our nonprofit and online fair-trade shop, includes a variety of home décor accessories that are unique and beautifully handmade by artisans from around the world. They are wonderful items to use for stylish storage ideas. We love the way they pair with smooth, wooden accents like the items in our acacia collection.
