handira-childofwild

Saturated with tradition and ethos, the Berber culture is rich with vitality, craft, and purpose.

From zesty turquoises, golds, and reds to purely whitewashed abodes, the vibrancy of Morocco is often celebrated in modern design.  These Berber traditions evoked in our homescapes are just as enchanted as the decor that embodies them.

Specifically, our love affair is with the Moroccan Wedding blanket.  Otherwise referred to as handira, these intricately sequined blankets are woven with love and for love.  Crafted by the bride-to-be’s female relatives, sequins are hand sewn and weaved, along with blessings and harmonies, into the sandy taupe drapery. 

Worn as a cape on her wedding day, the bride is decorated with warmth, familial collaboration, baraka (blessings), and sequins that shimmer the love and enchantment of her life to come.  The blanket is said to also have protective properties, meant to armor the bride from evil spirits on her special day and forward.

Traditionally all shades neutral, these blankets radiate a juxtaposing dose of tradition and glam.  The femme flare of mirrored sequins against a blend of oatmeal tones creates a statement that anyone would fall for this Holiday season…  and every season after.

»» A home is where the heart is ♥‡♥ A skull is where the soul is ««

Spanning all sorts of eras and ethnologies, decorated bones are an ancient adornment way sicker than your average. The ideology behind a skull is vast.  And if you find yourself searching for a gift with meaning with holiday season, there’s a whirlwind of ancient societies and modern folkways that would point you in the same direction:

Towards the aged and evocative heirloom that points right back at you.    Two calcified tips looking forward.  Bound to a habitat, which at a time, was colonized.  But this entity of energy has since sailed onward.

The adventure to the afterlife.  A celebration of vitality.  A reminder of our transience.  An honor to humanity within flesh and without.

Many civilizations believe the skull is a portal.  The deepest of our intuitions arouse at the sense of an entry, an opening.  We’re creatures that yearn to escape and explore.  Our primal enticements of secret doors and vast landscapes, any sense of uncharted adventure- it lures us.  We’re magnetized by these roundabout saturations of philosophy.  Whether a spiritual gateway or a provocative enigma of what’s to come, we adorn our walls with bones to nourish our souls.  It’s an unconscious and enchanted stimulation.

We cherish these philosophies, and hope to spread their purpose to as many hearts and homes as we can.  We seek to awaken your senses- we’re wild like that.  Are you?

Even fossilized and vacant, we believe that the value of a head remains as the truest point of individuality.  Child of Wild seeks to preserve the importance of unique identity.  Our glorified bones have unique personalities, meant to juxtapose your own.. and the abode you call home.  Take a peak at a few of our favorite personas and where we think they’d dwell in harmony.

The Rad Guy’s Gift Guide

November 24, 2015

∴ No matter how well you know him, he’s still the hardest to shop for.  No frets though, we’ll let you in on our dirty little gifting secrets.  Our men’s collection is an ode to our favorite wild boys, bad boys, and rusty rockers, of course.  But if your man likes a good story, we’ve got a few vintage oddities and rarities with a story as special as your man is to you.

ChildofWild_MensChildofWild_MensFreshly welded or rustically vintage, Native American Rings are a favorite go-to gift for our laid back rock and rollers.  From Navajo engraved sterling silver bands, to the raddest turquoise statement rings- All of our Vintage items are aged with love and carry the spirit of all the decades it has lived.

For the men who like to keep it simple, gift them with a little statement:  Our money clips trump any wallet.  They’re meant to keep credit cards and cash organized without the bulkiness of carrying around a wallet.  Keep their pockets light & their hearts heavy with our vintage navajo money clip collection.  What super babe doesn’t want her man to whip out cash stashed into a Navajo made clip, anyway?

We love a man in a sexy skinny tie.  We also love a man who adorns it with a little extra somethin’.  Our tie accessories create an eclectic rad style out of any suit.  Used to control the creases in a tie, tie accessories are the perfect way to funk up your boring office attire or wedding date suit.  And if he refuses to match his tie color to your dress, at least he’ll match your killer turquoise gems.  *For the man who doesn’t wear ties, they also make killer jacket pins!
