Next to loving and capturing new work of ceramists, weavers and everything natural and hand crafted. I also regularly receive updates off the larger brands when a new collection is launched. Most of the time the new collection is all on trend, as is the latest by H&M Home! Titled “For the love of craft” the collection shows all things I noticed to be popular on blogs and social media lately including my latest guilty pleasure: You Tube. During the pandemic I discovered You Tube and I really enjoy the home makeovers and getting a sneak peek of new products by those who buy a lot online and have a good and honest opinion.
H&M home collection
I actually do not buy a lot of new stuff for my home myself, but occasionally I love to order something to see it up close. Recently I ordered a small vase at H&M home because I loved the shape, see below. I satisfied my curiosity but it also made me realize that I prefer to surround myself with some rougher and more authentic work. But that’s just personal of course. I think it is a totally okay collection for those who quickly want to change decor or don’t want to spent a lot on unique ceramic pieces.
For the love of craft
Plant dyed linen, coconut buttons, banana fibre yarn and mouth-blown glass are some of the natural materials that define the collection. All in materials and colours that would actually really fit my home, and I can easily see the cushions made with Himalayan nettle on my bench. A material H&M is using for the first time.
The plant grows wildly in Nepal, where the cultivation into fibres provides a livelihood to the local villagers. Due to differences in the shades, the yarn has a natural variation, as the nettle can vary from season to season and between areas. Buttons are made from coconuts and you will see a natural variation from one button to another.
Everything from this collection is easy to mix and match to create an authentic natural feel at home. The cushions with plant dyed linen throws, handwoven with natural unbleached linen. Add structure and patina with the hand painted vases made from natural terracotta. And set the table with new cutting boards and glassware.
