Do you want to know one of my favorite ways to spend a hot summer afternoon when I have nowhere I have to be? Inside an air conditioned room, on a comfortable couch with pillows, reading a good book. Not quite the outdoorsy answer one was hoping for? Well, it’s all about balance, friends. As much as I enjoy basking in the sunshine, I also enjoy watching it stream through the windows and fill my room with light. This might help explain my love affair with textiles, however. Surrounding oneself with beautifully crafted textiles is one way to ensure a good afternoon.
Carol Gilbert of yorktown road creates vibrant and gorgeous linen bags and pillows that are simply stunning in their craftsmanship and design. Gilbert’s hand-dyed linens are formed with great care and attention to form, with the fabric dictating the design. yorktown road bags are one of a kind pieces that bring a subtle simplicity to the table. I would be remiss if I didn’t send you over to yorktown road pillowshop as well, especially considering the perfect marriage of a free summer afternoon and a great textile. happy summer, yorktown road.
