Bholu (Australia)

Bholu (Australia)

Here’s a delightful way to keep warm this winter! Light some candles and cuddle up with cozy things from Bholu in Australia. These hand-embroidered works designed by Aussie native Jodie Fried, are created by the hands of the Gujarati women artisians that dwell in the remote desert villages in western Gujarat, India. Using traditional techniques, these ladies bring to life Jodie’s designs using felt and silk hand embroidery stitching, simple yet bold and very textural for the modern interior.

Psst: If you are a reader down under, Bholu will exhibit at the Melbourne Design Market this weekend, on Sunday December 3, 10-5 pm, Federation Square (under covered car park), Melbourne. Rain or shine. Free admission.

    I love these items. I always wonder about international shipping though. Have you found that it is reasonable, Holly, and do you order internationally?

    Shipping is always a bit high, so I tend to keep int’l ordering at bay. I also ship things to my family in Germany and they hold it for me for when I’m there again since some companies do not ship to America but do ship to Europe. It’s all about strategic shopping, he he.

    Hello there!

    It’s Jodie from Bholu here… thank you Decor8 for the blog! We love you all to know about our things down here…..

    Yes we do ship internationally, just depends on the item, as we don’t tend to ship the cushions with the feather inserts due to tricky customs issues ( so we do cushion covers only) ….

    Everything else is reasonably costed when shipped by normal air mail.

    If anyone is interested, let us know and we can get a quote for you!

    Happy Shopping!

    I see that this post is pretty old, but I wanted to comment that Velocity Art and Design (in the US) now sells Bholu:

    I LOVE these rugs – beautiful, simple, and hip at the same time.
