Online store find - Indigo Paia

I spoke about Daniel Sullivan in a post recently - an amazing photographer who travels the globe and shoots amazing pics. Well, not only does he do that...but along with wife CaraMiya Davies, he has opened a store called Indigo, in Paia, Maui, which has some of the world's most beautiful tribal arts, antiques and rugs.

Ever since I stumbled upon this blog I have been pretty much obsessed with it, not just for the gorgeous products they carry  as well as Daniel's amazing photography which captures the beauty and innocence and impending doom of our planet, but for the inspirational stories and videos of all the work they are doing by providing employment to refugees. I have spent hours reading about their travels and work.

But first things first - here are some of those fabulous products I was talking about....
Chowkies or benches

Knobs and knockers
Furniture
Hand painted wooden pails
Eye catching textiles
 Brass and bronze door pulls
And this is a video Daniel put together to highlight the work they are doing through their rug project in Afghanistan.



Great work! There is plenty more to see on their website.....fabulous products, great design ideas, inspirational stories, travel stories....you can spend hours there. Oh - and in my next life I want to be named CaraMiya! Are the Gods listening....? I came close to being named that in this life - the first and third syllables are in my name - but that's not good enough!
