Ostara Blessings- What The Wheel of the Seasons Taught Me- Nisha Designs

One of the ways I recognize the wheel of the season in my own life is that is has taught me how to celebrate me, who I am on the inside. The Soul. For a long time my life was about celebrating ‘others, there needs, wants, desires, there lives completely forgetting who I am on the inside and ignoring my own life and purpose of my existence. Because living for others is definitely not how one should be living there gift of LIFE. The gift is given to you by you being born on this planet and you are the person to live your own gift.

And as time passed every part of my life became about ‘others’. The choices I made were based on what others believe about me, my life and changes I made were based on what others think I should change not do or not than what the soul my trueself desired to change and do. As I started to question everything, seek the soul, let go of everything, every person related or connected to me that does not belong to me the soul in every aspect of my life. I started to celebrate the wheel of the season because it belonged to me not because ‘others did it’. It belonged to me and that what mattered. Its been 6 years since celebrating the wheel of the season. I didnt understand it at first but I kept on celebrating the wheels every year and I can finally say today I am just beginning to understand the importance of wheel of the season in my own life and I can see now how it helped me. It gave me knowledge, wisdom, push, support, love, understanding, caring, backed me physically, spiritually, financially, materially, energetically, psychically, mentally and emotionally as I was transforming and transitioning to being my trueself and into the blueprint to the life my soul designed for me which I wavered from. It held a sacred space for me is how special it is. It was bringing me back to my true path, life and soul purpose that which I had asked for which is to be my tureself. That was my only prayer year after year. And today the day of ostara I can say there is still work to do but I have arrived. I was presented with an opportunity to choose what path am I wanting. It was about do I want to stay in my past or do I want to choose my present. The present is who I am my trueself the soul. It was in my dream early hours of dawn that the choice was presented and I chose me, my true path. And I woke up with the awareness of renewal, change, rebirth, breakthrough from a life lesson that was holding me down, limiting me to my own potential. That I finally am ready for new beginnings, fertility, renewal in all aspects of my life. This is just the beginning of celebrating myself into becoming my trueself.

We grow with the wheel. Wheels of the year shows us our own growth, potential, progress, accomplishment or lessons we learn or we didnt and we still need to learn. The beauty about celebrating the wheel, doing the ritual is that every wheel presents us with an opportunity to change, learn, grow, live the life we desire, choose differently to become our trueself. It provides us a spiritual and magickal understanding and solution to bring about the change we want, need, desire.

Great time to look at what you choosing, who you choosing and why because we are the creator of our life. And the wheels of the season brings us, guides us and grants us our prayers where we need to be if we pay attention to the the wheels of the season in our own lives. We are here to celebrate living the beauty of life to our utmist potential and walking the path of heart and soul.

Ostara or otherwise spring equinox is the time of renewal, new beginnings, fertility and rebirth. Sowing seeds of love and goodness. Ostara Blessings to all.

Wool Collection- Nisha Designs

Wool is an extraordinary fibre from nature, whose properties produce extremely high-quality and sustainable fabrics. Obtained from the sheep’s fur, wool is a renewable resource that mankind has been using for more than 8000 years.

32 Spectacular Fabrics and Trims Coming to Market This Year- AD- Nisha Designs

From tapestries to cut velvet and shimmery upholstery, here are the fabric and trim trends that will rule 2023

By Stephanie Sporn

Tired of seeing yet another bouclé-covered sofa? Us too. This year promises a new wave of ideas for fabrics and trims, as seen at Paris Déco Off in January and recent collection previews. Textures have evolved from the nubby options of yesteryear to sleek-piled velvets and woven tapestries. Plus, what’s old is new again as pattern inspirations pull largely from fabric house archives. When it comes to color, bold, full-bodied jewel tones continue to reign, though experimentation with monotonal fabrics and trims make way for inspiring neutrals that are anything but one note. Here are the textiles you’re about to see everywhere in 2023.

Making the Cut

In a departure from the full-scale velvets of years past, this season is all about cut velvet. These touchable textile debuts are at once funky, sinuous, and eye-catching—and in every colorway imaginable. We say pile them on!

Peacock Blue Is the New Neutral

From ruby red and regal plum to refreshing peacock blue, jewel tones prevail in 2023’s collections of fabrics and trims. That avian blue—envisioned in a variety of fabrics and patterns this season—is as entrancing as it is versatile. With appealing options like these, there’s nothing wrong with a little peacocking.

Fresh Takes on Tapestry

Flora and fauna grow rampantly in the latest fabric trend of reviving tapestry and crewelwork from centuries past. Though some brands have opted for more literal interpretations of Flemish verdure tapestry, others have whimsically reimagined woodland scenes and the creatures that inhabit them. As heritage houses comb through their archives, many have chosen to reinterpret historical fabrics. William Morris, for example, created the Bird pattern in 1878 to adorn his drawing room walls at Kelmscott House, and this season Morris & Co. has reproduced the fabric with the original hand-driven jacquard loom production quality. 

Meanwhile, French heritage label Braquenié, which Pierre Frey acquired in 1991, celebrates its 200th anniversary with the Anniversaire 1823–2023 collection, featuring more than 50 fabrics, 30 wallpapers, and 10 rugs that draw on the textile maison’s archival documents, as well as those in the heritage collections of the Château de Versailles, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and the Musée de la Toile de Jouy. Featuring several fabrics directly inspired by tapestry, cross-stitching, and other highly textural woven techniques, the collection launched during Paris Déco Off and made for one of the week’s most memorable events: At Château de Louye, a privately owned castle in Normandy, Braquenié fabrics dressed nearly every interior in marvelously patterned layers for a sumptuous display of French heritage, expertly blending the old and the new.

All That Glitters

Metallic threadwork and cording played a standout role in nearly every collection this season, adding luster to scenes under the sea or inside the forest. And for the more modern-minded, abstract patterns have also been making a splash across showrooms. One thing is certain: In 2023, designers are ready to show up for shimmer.

White on White

The resurgence of monochrome interiors have textile makers toying with new ways to add texture and depth to minimalist palettes. That can mean anything from employing chic tone-on-tone embroideries and fringe-inducing fil coupé techniques to experimentations with weight and sheerness.

Playful Passementerie

Maximalism and historic details continue to dazzle new audiences this year, making it passementerie’s time to shine. In addition to Clarence House’s launch of more than 200 solid-color trimmings—designed to effortlessly complement residential interiors—ombré tassels and ornate Art Deco fringe topped our list of must-sees.

Lets Talk Sustainability-Fossil Fuel- Fracking- Mining- Synthetic ‘Manmade’ ‘Humanmade’ Fibers- Education- Nisha Designs

What is sustainability truly?

It is a process of a product made from the surface of the planet. Every step of the process of making of the product is made from materials found on the surface of the planet. These materials that are found from the surface of the planet are sustainable, they are biodegradable meaning once the products lifespan is over they can go back to earth and decompose easily. These materials found on the surface of the planet are safe for the planet, planets people and its well being. These materials that are found on the surface of the planet have all the qualities needed to create a sustainable product. Hence the planet has these materials for us to create from. These materials that are grown on the surface do not harm the planets well being.

So lets talk about what is harming the planet?

Fossil Fuel, Fracking, Mining, Manmade synthetic fibers.

All synthetic fibers are made from fossil fuel, fracking and mining that are hazardous to the planet and our health and well being. So why is this allowed? Why does a ‘man’, ‘human’ have a need to create different from what is already created for us to live comfortably by the planet? Why do businesses and corporations feel they are entitled and have the right to harm the planet? Why arent they kept accountable? And why arent we demanding transparency truth of the processes? Questioning the businesses and corporations we work with or buy there services and products for there full transpqrency?

Polyester is made from petroleum that is obtained by fossil fuel mining practices. Businesses and corporations are labelling, certifying polyester, recycle polyester and all synthetic fibers as sustainable why? Fossil fuel, mining, fracking is not a sustainble practice. And must be stopped immediately and any product nade from it. The certifying agencies claim it is safe for humans and why are they prioritizing the need, want of a ‘human’ before the planets need, want, requirement? Dont you think logically if we take care of the planet the people will be taken care of? Why are they separating planets needs and the people needs? Have you actually truly seen there recycling processes? And what they are telling you is actually the truth? Are they true to there word on doing the recycling sustainably? No they are not. There have been no codes, no certificate for planet based surface materials why? All of these ways of practicing is by law a felony a crime to misguide the consumers and must be held responsible for there false marketing and false information to the consumers. They must be held accountable to clean up the planet for the mess they have made.

Lets keep talking… Subscribe to our blogs to learn and be aware of facts and truth of sustainability.

Hemp to Hardwood-Nisha Designs

How is HempWood® Natural Flooring Made?

The process of creating HempWood® Natural Flooring starts in the field. All hemp is sourced within 100 miles of the factory from local farmers. After the hemp is collected, a plant-based adhesive is used to bind full-length fiber hemp stalks. After the hemp stalks and plant-based adhesive are combined, the material is compressed and baked to form HempWood® Blocks.

From the Blocks, 4mm HempWood® veneers are cut for the top layer of the engineered flooring.
For the substrate, a 5-layer PureBound® Hardwood Plywood is used. The plywood is ethically sourced from Columbia Forest Products, which is located in West Virginia. By using PureBound® Plywood, we are able to maintain our eco-friendly mission and support the American economy.

After cutting the veneers and ripping the plywood, our flooring is assembled with the help of our PUR glue line. After adhering the HempWood® veneer to the Purebond® Plywood, a tongue and groove profile is cut into the flooring.

The boards are then sanded, finished, and surveyed for any blemishes. Our quality control team hand checks each board and ensures that our flooring upholds our standard of hardness, durability, and beauty.

Variety is a Spice of Life- Hemp Flooring- Nisha Designs

Variety is a spice of life. And so having options and choices is a natural part of our life. Having choices balances out the economy.
