About JUNE+ BLUE's Textiles
Textiles labeled "old" refer to anything between "new" and "vintage". While they may not yet fall into the vintage category, they are definitely special enough to bring home.
"Vintage" refers to textiles that are 25 years of age and older. Becca at J + B travels regulary all over Morocco to source one-of-a-kind beauties that you just won't find anywhere else. With a market that is flooded with reproductions of this special kind of rug and local textiles, she is passionate to find authenticity and interesting pieces that will not only hold their value but also last another lifetime.
CUSTOM MAKING & SOURCING
All new June + Blue textiles are purchased directly from freelance artisanal cooperatives. Working closely with artisans has advantages, first and foremost, the guarantee of fair wages and working environments. In local market places, the artisan has too often been paid littel above their cost of materials, which you can imagine does not equate to a fair living wage. Buying cheaper is not always a win. It is June + Blue's commitment to ensure that every newly made June + Blue item directly benefits the hands that made it.
Becca at June + Blue has developed relationships with these makers and is so honored to carry their work into her product range. And so are we at Earthly Urban Interiors, to be able to represent their creativity and skill.
If you however do not want to a new rug, but one that has a history and brings authenticity to your home, Becca is also available to help you source THE ONE for you.
