Whether you’re decorating your first apartment or adding to your 30-year macrame collection, there seems to always be a wall hangin’ around that’s begging for a new piece of textile art.
You can find some pretty good deals on Etsy, as compared to, say, a boutique in an expensive city like San Francisco where I live. But it’s not easy sifting through thousands of Etsy shops for exceptional quality and design. So I’ve done the work for you! My goal was to find shops that had: 1. Items like nothing I’d seen before; 2. Design consistency; 3. At least 15 pieces that meet the previous qualifications; and 4. an aesthetic that would suit a wide range of palates.
The result, unsurprisingly, is that I want to cover my home in one of each of these pieces. How do you guys think I did? Let me know in the comments!
