Cloud Carrier Bath Mat

Bath Mat

Cloud Carrier

The perfect bath mats: fuzzy, foamy and finely enhanced with brilliant art. With a soft, quick-dry microfiber surface, memory foam cushion and skid-proof backing, our shower mats are a cut above your typical rug. Keep them clean with a gentle machine wash (no bleach!) and make sure to hang dry.


I have been spending a lot of time lately searching through old photographs, digging through my family’s collections and diving even deeper into vast online archives. While I’m not sure exactly what has prompted this recent binge, it reminds me of the hours I spent as a child engrossed in the stories of how life used to be. Now, I’m enjoying taking these snapshots and giving them a new life.

For this piece I started with a pencil drawing of the boy carrying a wheelbarrow. After experimenting with a few colors digitally, I mixed a perfect shade of mint and painted a background directly onto some linen. Over the weekend I stitched some fabric clouds over the paint, and when everything was finished I combined all the separate elements digitally. I am so glad to live in a time when technology allows me to combine my favorite mediums this way!

I hope you like my newest experiment; I’d love to hear what you think!
