Designed in Brooklyn by Bien Mal, this super-soft, 100% cotton throw balances a bold statement with exquisite details. In contrasting white knit, “NO” is obviously spelled out. On the backside, NO remains, this time in black on a rainbow weave. The item is framed by multi-color fringing on the two longer sides, and black and white fringing on the others. Measuring 60 by 50 inches, this blanket is large and cozy, if a little brazen.
The latest iteration of Muse’s meditation-assisting technology, the Muse S multi-sensor headband offers real-time feedback on brain activity, body movement, heart rate and breathing as one meditates. Gone are the rubbery cushions of previous versions, replaced by comfortable plush fabric. This redesign takes into account users who’d like to meditate before sleep (or simply listen to soothing sounds), but all of the original value is here in the form of guided meditation and diagnostics on how you were feeling and when.
Made from raw and wild plant ingredients, these breu resin incense sticks last for 50 minutes each, but are effective enough to burn a little at a time. Available with different botanical options blended in, our favorite is Palo Santo. The combination offers healing, cleansing and protective qualities with a scent that invokes Southwest US vibes. They come in a set of nine.
Handmade in Oaxaca from local beeswax and natural dyes, Aesa’s opulent bouquet candles all vary slightly. Each unique piece has been produced by a family that’s been crafting religious candles for three generations. The items measure approximately 12 inches tall before burning.
With ingredient transparency—from sustainably sourced cosmetic grade mica (instead of glitter) to premium citric acid, grapeseed oil and baking soda—Evenprime’s new bath bomb maintains the brand’s rigorous product standards. Inspired by Shin the Supreme Kai from Dragonball Z, the purple celestial being playfully alters the color of bath water and moisturizes skin in the process. Its scent features melon, ylang-ylang, and rose, amidst vetiver and black pepper. Vegan and cruelty-free, the bath bomb was handcrafted in the USA.
With panels of subtle hues contrasted by candy colors, this knitted throw blanket is undeniably the work of Brooklyn-based Dusen Dusen. Made from 100% cotton, the Stripe Throw Blanket is super-soft and sizable, at 50 by 70 inches.
These bed sheets by Piglet are made from 100% natural stonewashed French flax, a fabric that’s cozy but breathable, as linen is woven more loosely than cotton. As such, they prove luxurious without being too silky, and natural without being scratchy. Best of all, the fabric just gets softer with each wash. The bundle (which comes with a striped duvet cover, two striped pillowcases, two white pillowcases, a flat sheet and a fitted sheet) offers an effortless but sophisticated look—thanks to its gray stripes on pale ecru, and natural creases. Available in full, queen or king sizes.
Moore & Giles’ double-layered leather sling (39 by 18 inches) and accompanying powder-coated steel frame (14 by 15.5 by 14.5) prove both scuff-proof and far superior when housing and transporting the firewood. The Baldwin Oak is a full-grain, rich brown leather that was tanned in Italy on English hides. The result is a texturally smooth leather that withstands bends, bumps, and the elements. Each carrier can also be personalized with three initials.
Featuring a design by Guadalajara-based artist Daniel Barreto, Slowdown Studio’s 100% cotton Spencer Throw measures out to 54 by 70 inches—meaning it’s big enough for a couch or bed, or as a wall-hanging. Featuring Barreto’s wavy, organic plants, the blanket’s palette is subtle but with pops of jewel tones. Spun and woven in the USA, it’s manufactured from yarn made from 70% recycled cotton.
With a design by Bristol-based artist George Greaves, this ZigZagZurich blanket comes in two colorways—this yellowish orange, or a rich teal. Woven in Europe from 100% New Zealand wool, it measures 55 by 79 inches and is certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX, which means no harmful chemicals or synthetics have been used during the manufacturing process.
Made from 100% cotton, the Fern Gully blanket by Halcyon Nights is reminiscent of the lush Australian bush thanks to its various shades of green, and images of native animals. Complete with small pops of pale pink and lilac, the sweet illustration is by Dandenong-based Min Pin Design. Soft and durable, the knitted blanket measures 100 by 80cm.
Based in NYC but producing high-quality pieces through artisans all over the world, Viso Project offers sophisticated, sustainable products in limited editions. The brand’s super-cozy Mohair Blanket V01 measures out to 135 by 200cm. The bold, abstract design is available in two colorways. Price is in GBP.
Crafted from 80% recycled cotton and 20% polyester, DittoHouse’s New Day throw blanket promotes a positive message, and made in the USA from sustainable fibers. Depicting an abstract forest (which is also reminiscent of old-fashioned hand-quilted blankets), the throw features a bright orange sun rising on the edge.
LA-based Boy Smells extends their CHROMESTHESIA series today, launching the second collection. Four new candles—with packaging and fragrances created to complement each other—are available now: Cameo, De Nîmes, Philia and Damasque. The latter (our favorite) boasts luscious notes of rose, apricot, labdanum, oud and tobacco—with a little spice courtesy of cardamom. A lavish and slightly dark scent, the food-grade coconut and beeswax candle resides in a rich burgundy vessel.
Naturally dyed using pomegranate, eucalyptus and tea, Buffy’s sheets eschew cotton for a eucalyptus fiber fabric. Not only are the sheets soft and cool to the touch, they’re also kinder to the planet as the dying process uses much less water and energy than traditional methods (and zero chemicals or binding agents). Eucalyptus fibers also repel mold, mildew, dust mites, and other microbes, and are even more breathable than cotton. Available in four colorways—white, pink, light gray and dark gray—each set comes with a fitted sheet, flat sheet and two pillowcases in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King and California King sizes.
Vegan and handmade, Avocado’s non-toxic pillows are crafted from multiple layers of materials approved by the Global Organic Latex Standard and Global Organic Textile Standard. Certified organic latex provides structure while Kapok fill offers comfort and a cotton cover wraps it all up. These pillows also keep cool and feel smooth to the touch.
