We have been up to a lot with creating new designs and items. Labor Day Weekend is Fiesta Hermosa in Hermosa Beach so we have been gearing up to have enough items to last for a three day event. We are excited to get out of the heat and participate in this lively event.
August has been a good month in terms of Etsy. We have had some interesting custom orders and wanted to share the final product. Our dog silhouette pillows can be customized to include the dog’s name and this particular customer wanted to give this as a gift to her coworkers. You can browse all of our dogs & cats items http://www.etsy.com/shop/ecarlateboutique?section_id=11267690 Remember, we can do any breed, include any name and customize the colors. Our standard colors include black, ivory, beige, copper, chocolate brown and grey. If you would like to include a different color we can discuss options. The options are endless…
Let there be Light!!! For over a year now we have been discussing incorporating a lighting line. After selling a few vintage light fixtures & lamps I discovered that this was a hot ticket item. My family enjoys vintage shopping or properly stated “treasure hunting”. We will go on our days off to a nearby town and browse for hours. Ecarlate is a mother daughter team but my dad really is the glue. Without his support and assistance we would not have had any of the opportunity to pursue our dreams. He is mechanically inclined and has been enjoying putting together our light fixtures.
His first completed project is below. Originally, this piece was used as a “warning light”. It would flash red under low pressure conditions. I love the rustic and industrial feeling to this piece and feel that it would serve as a wonderful statement piece in a entry, powder bath, kitchen or entry.

We have been successful thus far in our Raven’s Nest line (children ware). We have been adding to the collection and am excited to share. Below, you’ll find a 12 month dress in a fabulous giraffe print in neutral tones. You can find it at https://www.etsy.com/listing/107190036/girls-dress-tunic-in-african-animal
Here is a shot of our giraffe print dress from the back. It is paired with a beige and ivory ticking stripe and a grosgrain ribbon for a sweet bow for an added touch!!
Here is another new item with a fun Asian inspired print. It has adorable geishas and gold accents. This item is available in 12 month / 1T. It would be perfect with little black leggings or black tights for a special event. The back is solid taupe and has our detail of the black grosgrain ribbon bow.

Here is another 12 month / 1T in a country western cotton print. We call this our “buckaroo” series… A perfect fun item for a child. Paired with a pair of pants or leggings & cowboy boots will be a perfect item for a weekend away. You can find this item at https://www.etsy.com/listing/107180799/girls-dress-tunic-in-playful-childrens
In between clothing & light fixtures, we finished one of our Americana items. We will take vintage burlap potato bags and fabricate these unique items for pillows. I found a bag with the fun “CALIFORNIA POTATOES” which I found to be perfect for upcoming shows with Californians. I also liked that it was green and paired it with a black cotton ticking to give a modern twist.

We are excited for our new season down in Palm Springs. The town is a bit of a ghost town due to the excessive heat (and now humidity). Thankfully, we have been stowed away working like busy bees to be out in the elements… Next weekend (Labor Day) we’ll be loading up for Hermosa Beach for a three day event!! We participate each week at the Village Fest Thursday evenings in downtown palm springs 7-10 PM summer hours.
