Carved acacia wood koi, carved mango wood vases & sculpture made from found wood at Mo Fin
Since my design firm also provides sustainable design services I am constantly looking for new eco design elements. The Summer San Francisco International Gift Fair had a few vendors presenting some interesting selections. Here is what caught my eye this weekend:
Wall sculpture made from teak scraps at Mo Fin (Photo: courtesy of Mo Fin)
Pillows made from stone-washed and bleached vintage dhurrie rugs at Bungalow
One-of-a-kind handwoven Kavango baskets from Namibia at Woven Promises

Selection of hand-loomed and naturally dyed linen scarves in solid, stripes and plaids at SLOWCOLOR
Table runners, pillows, totes and sachets made from antique European textile yardage,
mangle cloth and grain sacks at Ludwiga’s Linens
All photos, unless noted otherwise, were taken by yours truly with a spy cam, aka my old iPhone 3G very much in need of replacement after surviving a drowning incident. It just has to hang on until the release of the new 5G. So please forgive the poor quality of some of the images.
I would love to hear if anyone has come across any other sustainable treasures at other shows.
