CraftedSystems is a Portland-based company run by designer Aurelie Tu in collaboration with the YWCA. The pieces are all hand-interlocked with 7 shapes, no glue, no stitching, etc. These pieces are amazing. I want them all. Portland-based retailer Relish will have the entire CraftedSystems line available this week, which consists of placemats, table runners, vases and bowls, lighting, and floor mats/rugs.
