Boho week is (sadly) coming to an end. But before we leave you, we’ve got one more dose of design knowledge today- and it’s all about the softer side of things: textiles!  

 

Textiles, (any type of woven fabric, be it pillows, throws or rugs) are a huge part of Boho style and creating that layered and collected feel in a space. As much of Boho style is derived from cultures and artistry from around the world, so are the variety of textiles: Otomi embroidery from Mexico, Kilim rugs from Turkey, Ikat fabrics from Asia, Berber style rugs and blankets from Morocco and so many more. It’s this diverse mix of prints, patterns and materials that makes this style so unique and truly global.

Keep scrolling for our top picks in pillows, throws and rugs to add that perfect finishing touch to your boho abode. You’re sure to find an option that will bring some unique style to your space, wherever it may be in the world.
