    I first would like to say that I am in love with this company. I’ve know of other companies similar to the set up of this one but I really enjoy how Ara Collective has been able to make everything they do clear and direct. I like how they’ve done the journals from the traveling but also a section about each specific family and what goes into each item. You definitely gain a greater appreciation for each individual piece!

    With that being said I really love the neutral charcoal rug, I’ve been looking for something just like it for my bedroom! As well as the indigo atitlan weekender bag and the black Chiapas throw!
