    Press: Interview by InteriorsbyJacquin

    We received big love from design blogger InteriorsbyJacquin -- Thank you for the delightful interview and sharing the KUFRI story.

    "Today we venture into the world of slow textiles with Dallas brand KUFRI, owned and created by the talented Mili Suleman. The term “slow textiles” captures the essence of a fully handmade, woven fabric created in a slow, artisanal manner as has been done for hundreds of years. Powered by handlooms, Mili Suleman’s company KUFRI is keeping alive the traditional weaving techniques of India with a contemporary spin for the modern design lover. Mili was kind enough to welcome me into her home for an interview where I learned about her foray into entrepreneurship, her creative spirit, and the process behind her one of a kind textiles"

    KUFRIcrush: Visiting Girard's wing in Santa Fe

    New Mexico never fails to cast her spell on me. Each time I visit, I discover something new and return completely revived and inspired. Here's my favorite from this trip...

    The Girard Wing at the Museum of International Folk Art has an astounding 10,000 objects from Alexander and Susan's collections. This playground of color and whimsy displays everything from framed textiles to elaborate village scenes. Besides the objects themselves, the space is designed like a creative playground using color blocks, varying heights and clever vignettes. Enjoy!

    The English Garden

    Last month, my hubby and I traveled to London and Dorset. London is such a juxtaposition of old and new, it's dramatic and absolutely gorgeous. But what really inspired me was the English countryside. Soft rolling hills, patches of every shade of green, a beautiful coastline and high cliffs.

    Here is a collection of photos I took in Abbotsbury and West Bay (yes, where Broadchurch is filmed!). It's no wonder that some of the most esteemed authors and stories come from the English countryside.
