  • #realtalk I had planned to list over 20 rugs this week for you all! However, as I mentioned a couple posts back, most of those rugs couldn’t be listed. I was looking at the small stack of 4 rugs this morning to be photographed for this evening’s drop, and I decided I need a break 😂 So! Those 4 rug babies will be added to next week’s drop and we are going to do a flash sale instead of a drop today! 👍🏻 10% off everything in the shop with free US shipping! The sale is active now through tomorrow at midnight (CST). 💕 . One lesson I’ve learned since starting this little business is that life as an entrepreneur is unpredictable, and flexibility is key! There are unexpected curve balls..it’s enough to make a gal worry if not for the one thing I can always count on to brighten the day - shout out to @netflix and cookie dough coconut ice cream! 😋 Sometimes it’s the little things. What are your “little things” that keep you going?

  • “Why don’t you stock Moroccan rugs?!” This is a question I get A LOT! Moroccan rugs are so different than Persian rugs, and I’ll be real, I’m not well-versed in the Moroccan rug art. Moroccan rugs are so special - they are made with endemic wool, use unique symbols related to a region or tribe, and each tell a special story. 💕 . One of my fave ethical Moroccan rug sellers is Becca @june.and.blue. She’s a small business #bosslady. This gal goes directly to Morocco and hand picks rugs herself. 🙌🏻 She even used to live in Morocco, so she has a breadth of product knowledge. One really special aspect of @june.and.blue - she will custom source a rug for you! Send her a message with what you’re looking for and she’ll find it for you. She’s super fun and easy to work with! 💕 #theethicalhome

  • Words I’m living by this week! I try to source as many rugs as possible locally, but I’ve been testing cutting out the “middle man” to reduce cost for you all, so I’ve been sourcing sample rugs directly from folks in Turkey and other surrounding Persian countries. 💁🏼‍♀️ . My biggest struggle with this has been quality control! When I look at a rug I always ask myself two questions: 1) Would I be happy putting this in my home? and 2) If I were the customer, would I be happy with this investment? 🧐 . This week alone I’ve sent back almost twenty rugs I had earmarked for you all. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’ve received rugs I didn’t order, rugs that aren’t authentic, rugs that have pet stains or are otherwise ruined...rugs I wouldn’t put in your homes. 😕 . The good news is, I have found a couple really good sources with beautiful rugs, I just didn’t expect it to be such a struggle 😂 At first I was like have I lost my rug mojo? 😢 But no, I have to remind myself to constantly work through the growing pains to get this little shop where it needs to be. #ruglife . This week’s lesson: Always be sure to purchase a vintage rug from a shop that has a good return policy juuust in case. 😉👍🏻 What is your takeaway from this week? I’d love to hear! Tell me below! 👇🏻 #theethicalhome

  • How crazy cute is this nursery by @debs_09?! Her #theethicalhome rug is living it’s best life anchoring this sweet space! 😍 Seeing my little rug babies styled in your lovely homes seriously makes my day! 😭♥️ I keep all the pictures in a little file and when I feel down about anything related to the business I look through the pictures and they instantly change my outlook! 🤗 . We still have a batch of rugs left from our drop this past Sunday! Link in bio if you’d like to peruse! 💃🙌🏻

  • Hey friends! 🙋🏼‍♀️ I wanted to share with you an ethical source for wall decor! My girl Lauren @leloboho is an amazing #smallbusinessowner who makes THE most beautiful and affordable dip-dye fiber art! Each piece is made with love by Lauren herself, and she uses all sustainable materials in her masterpieces. 👌🏻 . If you have a bold vintage rug in your space, I’d recommend considering a dip-dye fiber tapestry for your walls! This will help create a good balance boldness and softness in your space. 👍🏻 . Don’t go crazy trying to find the “perfect” piece of wall decor - Lauren can create you a custom piece, too! Send over a picture of your space and she’ll pull some colors out to create you a special tapestry. She’s super sweet and so easy to work with! ✌🏻💕 #theethicalhome

  • *SOLD* We made it through Monday, friends! 🙌🏻 My Monday evenings typically consist of shipping orders! Shipping rugs is a bit of a workout, but plug in a good podcast paired with a tall glass of wine and I’m a happy lady! 🤗 . So I took my first EVER vacation last year to Vegas and I absolutely loved it! I really want to preschedule some recharge time into each Winter, especially since I now essentially have two jobs 😂 So I’m itching to get a vacation on the books for January/February and I NEED to know - what has been your favorite vacation?! Tell me below! 👇🏻 . The runner pictured is easily one of my favorites in the shop now! It’s in mint condition the colors are giving me all the Fall vibes! 🍂🍁 Adam’s starting to get more involved in the shop, and when I brought out this rug to teach him how to draft a listing, he wanted to keep it. 🤦🏼‍♀️ My, how the tables turn! 😂 Measures 3’7”x9’5” and is listed in the shop for $449 with free US shipping! #theethicalhome

  • Actual footage of my quarterly tax deadline for The Ethical Home sneaking up on me! Just wanted to let you all know I haven’t left you, I’m still alive, I’ve just been buried in bookkeeping! 😂 . Fun fact about me: I majored in literature to avoid taking any more math than minimally possible to graduate. 💁🏼‍♀️ Maybe it’s time to outsource? @kmk178 I’m gently tagging you, girl. 🙋🏼‍♀️ . We will be back to our regularly-scheduled vintage rug spam tomorrow ✌🏻💕 // Repost via @insta.animalove

  • How fun is this space by @_sare_xo?! I love how she used her @the.ethical.home rug as a accent piece and layered it over a larger rug. Vintage Persian rugs come in so many non-standard shapes and sizes, so if you come across “the” rug but it’s too small, layering on top of a neutral rug is the ticket! 👌🏻 . We just added a fresh stock of rugs to the shop this weekend, and they are mighty fine! Link in bio to shop 💕 #theethicalhome
