Owner, Loomed NOLA
It’s summer time in the city! If you’re not crammed inside an air-conditioned office or home, you’re likely chillin’ by the pool or a big body of water (you lucky duck!). And, If you’re “in the know” you’ve clearly scouted one of NOLA’s newest businesses, Loomed NOLA, and you’re sporting your Turkish Towel from everyone’s favorite store. New Orleans is so lucky to have this amazing local business, Loomed NOLA, that works directly with the families of Turkish craftsmen to bring the highest quality and most beautiful handwoven textiles right here to our city for everyone to enjoy. We checked in with Molly to learn what’s keeping her sane during these h-o-t months.
TSG: Books are can be a total escape from reality. Clearly, after a long day at the shop, you have to slip away to some other world. What book takes you there?
MB: Lookaway, Lookaway by Wilton Barnhardt
TSG: And if you’re too tired to read, you have to be jamming to some tunes with a great glass of vino. What song are you listening too?
MB: Anything by the Avett Brothers!
TSG: Any chance you’re able to say “Bon Voyage” this summer? If so, where are you heading?
MB: Florida and Istanbul, although I’ve got southern Spain on the brain…
TSG: Can I go in your suit case? Ok, Ok, what’s your go-to item for summer?
MB: My white maxi dress from Hattie Sparks and my favorite coral Loomed NOLA pestamel, of course!
TSG: Trés Chic! What are you most looking forward to about Fall?
MB: Cooler temperatures and new school supplies. I treat myself every September!
TSG: Spoken just like a former school teacher!
Turkish Towels are all the rage for so many reasons. I love them because they are lightweight, easy to throw in the beach bag, doesn’t weigh it down, air drys quickly, and doubles as a sarong. Molly can certainly enlighten you on all the other reasons why they are ideal for bath and home, too. Be sure to read Molly’s blog where she shares her tidbits on the Turkish Towel and other very important things to know like caring for your Turkish towels!
