faribault mill.

warm & toasty…

i picked up a 100% wool faribault x west elm collaboration blanket in a baby blue pattern as a wedding gift to two friends, and was convinced i needed one myself. i chose a different style, but am so pleased with it – as i’m sure my friends will be with theirs. i hadn’t heard of the nearly 150 year old minnesota-based wool mill/manufacturer before, and after looking in to them, was just as charmed by the company as the product…

The Interceptor – Detail.

these handmade, fully utilitarian beauties are the work of Bill Holloway and Mauro Hernandez of Masterworks Wood & Design,  based in San Jose, California. each frame is carved from “urban lumber” or “salvaged timber”; wood from dying trees in cities or wood from buildings or other structures that are being torn down. Each bike is made-to-order, can be 8 ft long and weigh from 45 to 70 lbs and have been fully tested to “take a beating”. all stains, sealants and other finishes, which are applied by hand, are also animal, people and Eco-friendly.

Bespoke Global, which sources and sells hand-made pieces by carefully curated artisans, also sell these tandem two-wheeled sculptures through their website. so, just when you were pleased as local, organic home-squeezed punch about your love for mother earth, mother said, “you can always do better”.
