Days grow shorter, nights linger, and the crisp arrival of fall welcomes the harvest moon with extra layers of comfort — all harvested from organic fibers in warm, neutral hues and hearty, autumn-approved textures. As the Harvest Moon rises, we move forward and inward — we curl up and cherish the harmony of the natural world. Coyuchi’s new fall offerings open the door to welcome the rich tones of autumn inside — just as the temperatures outside start to take on their signature September chill. Invite the full richness of autumn’s dwindling daylight inside with our warming hues, weights, and textures. Classic collections, like the best-selling Organic Air Weight Towels, get fall-forward updates in carefully curated shades like Dusty Coral and Indigo, which pair beautifully with earthy neutrals like the warmth of Cloud Loom’s new Taupe and Blush. New additions to our all-organic linen closet play up the rich textures and tones of the season, like the grid-woven Indio and elegantly embroidered Morelia duvets in yarn-dyed organic cotton. Moonlight Blue and Indigo embrace deep ocean tones, while verdant Moss captures a rich green that’s the very essence of organic. Ginger, Dusty Coral, and Sunwashed Blue make those early sunsets feel warm and welcome in every room — and new Laurel and Mid Gray Plaid give our Cloud Brushed Organic Flannel the perfect feel for fall. We appreciate the planet’s beauty and choose to protect it through organic farming practices that support healthy soil, healthy workers, and healthy products for your home. That’s why we work to ensure that our products are not only organic, but crafted according to the most elite certifications, like GOTS, Fair Trade, and Made Safe. Our partnership with Fibershed also connects us to local Climate Beneficial Wool farmers who work to fight climate change and improve the quality of the soil, water, and the air we breathe.

Yesterday we had a snow day here in the Northeast and there’s a nice, fresh coating of white snow – just enough to make everything pretty!? Right after taking down the Christmas decor, things can look pretty bare. ?But, I’m not quite ready to bring out “all things spring”. ?So I decided to do a few easy projects to work through January and February.? The first thing I made was this Silver White Winters Glitter Canvas to display on my winter mantel.
