Laviva Trunk Show

Looking for eye candy? Color inspiration? A special something to lovingly run your hands over? A unique, handcrafted Christmas present with international intrique? Check out  l’aviva home – a series of curated online trunk shows.


Currently on show: textile and objectShown here: handpainted Michoacan platters and Kantha pillows from India


In textile , each hand-selected piece tells a story and evokes a sense of place. Show here: Kuba cloth from the Congo (my fav!) and hadenga cushions, made by Zimbabwean refugees.


Items in object  balance traditional techniques with a modern sensibility. Shown here: Bolivian aguayos and Turkish filligree pendant lamps

“The collections reflect the belief that the things we surround ourselves with should possess a soul, a history, and a purpose beyond mere decoration: they should help us connect to the world.” I’m feeling very connected right now…..
