Fresh perspectives from the heart of the mill

What’s new at Merida? And what’s on your mind?

As a heritage brand with a heart for textiles, we find inspiration everywhere we look–from the art world to the interior design community to our global partners and the incredibly talented craftspeople who bring our rugs to life. Of course we love collaborating as much as we love craftsmanship, so we decided it’s time we really talked–not just about what’s au courant but what truly matters.

Off the Loom is more than a blog. It’s an online design journal for sharing ideas and inspirations with you–our friends and partners in design.

Off the Loom will take you into the Merida workroom for a sneak peak at custom projects, designer collaborations, and new work in progress. But it’s also a social media channel to talk about things that truly matter to us as a responsible business–and to you, our design partners. We’re launching #offtheloom to spark a deeper conversation around the value of true craftsmanship, why quality makes a difference, and how the choices we make as a design community can create meaningful change.

We hope you’ll follow us and join the #offtheloom conversation. Together we can make the world a more beautiful place… from the floor up.
