Behind the scenes of juju hats being made! a handful of feathers is tied to the end of a raffia stick, and then the sticks are attached to a woven base to create the structure. photo by @emweg_juju

Have you seen our newest little jujus? white flecked with tan has always been a top seller, so i decided to see what it would be like in a smaller size - and its even better than i thought! handmade with real feathers and raffia in cameroon, west africa. .

Sweet little woven baskets, handmade with love in rwanda! your purchase allows a collective of over 800 women weavers to work from home, on their own time, building businesses and receiving entrepreneurship training. communities are being transformed because of the creation of something as simple as a sweet little basket you can throw your keys in when you get home from work. impactful and beautiful! .

Alright, after yesterday's post and all your love i've had to snuggle down and soak it all in. you are all incredible. thank you for your comments and love! luckily for me, i get to keep display items - and this pom pom blanket is where its at. all natural cotton, hand woven in the middle atlas mountains in morocco by a fourth generation family of weavers. i'll just be over here for a while. 💕 (photo and styling by @carlaypage )

Hi everyone! as promised, here comes some more vulnerability from me. this is the doozy - the part of my story i've never publicly shared. i'm telling it here in hope that it will encourage someone who is in a similar place. i told you recently that when zeal started, my personal life was in shambles. this is that part of the story. ⁣

this photo was taken in 2012, when i was right in the middle of a two year long battle for a very broken marriage. in this photo, i was 26. my heart was exhausted from the rolling waves of hope in my relationship, rising and falling in a way that was so intense it felt violent. the life i had built for seven years (yes, you read that right: i got married when i was 19) was in tatters, and i didn't want anyone to know, and everything hurt. everything. ⁣

a year after this photo was taken, my marriage officially came to an end. it was, at the time, the absolute worst case scenario i could have imagined. i hadn't lived a day in my twenties without him. ⁣

and yet. ⁣

the sun kept coming up. my community rallied around me and showed up for me in ways i didn't expect and desperately needed. little packages of grace and love kept coming my way to keep me moving through it. i got to start over, on my own but not alone - and now, the thing that i once thought i would never recover from has proven to be the thing i am most grateful for.⁣

i never would have taken seriously the work i needed to do emotionally without that breakup. i wouldn't have had the chance to really know what its like to be held up and championed for by my family and friends without that loss. losing the life i had built left me no choice but to start again, with a stronger foundation - choosing every pillar and person and love and circumstance i let into it. it was hard, and i stumbled through it (those of you who were with me through this, oh how you know. bless you). but now? i can't even believe how beautiful this life is. i'm madly in love with it, and it was worth every day of pain to get here. ⁣

i will most likely have a giant vulnerability hangover (hi @brenebrown ) the second i hit post on this. so join me, would you? can you relate? ⁣

xo, ⁣

The newest addition to our glassware collection has been stealing hearts! meet the optic tumblers in purple. each one is made of recycled glass and blown by hand in eswatini, southern africa. perfect for cocktails on the patio when you just can't accept that summer is over. 🥂 (anyone else in denial about that? just me? 😆)

Moroccan textiles are famous around the world for a reason - the textures and quality of their weaving is truly exceptional. each pillow is handmade from existing woven handira wedding blankets, which are traditionally worn by bedouin brides on their wedding day. the silver metal sequins are hand applied, and each pillow is just a bit different. they add such a special touch to the sofa or bed. 😍 (photo and styling by the lovely @carlaypage )
