H e l l o B r o o k l yn,
I am excited to welcome Malene B. to Atlanta for the Atlanta International Home and Gift Market.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, January 10 at 2:00 p.m. You'll get a chance to meet B. and get a preview of her new rug collection "Destinations and Voyages." Malene B. shares her mission and inspirations in her work through images and quotes, some of which we've taken the time and gathered below. You can find out more about B. on her lovely website. You can also keep up with B. on Facebook and Twitter. She is definitely one to watch.
"It is important for me to be socially conscious in all my endeavors. To that end, I proudly support Goodweave and Aid to Artisans in their quest to eliminate child labor practices, provide education and preserve handmade crafts in Africa, Asia and South America."
Her Mission: "To share my love of travel and expose the world’s connectivity through each design. To create designs that celebrate the cultural inspirations found in ceremony, nature, habitat and style of art."
"For more than a decade, I have been creating carpets for industry professionals and private label brands such as Nicole Miller, Martha Stewart, Nautica, Liz Claiborne, Nate Berkus and others."
