New items! Let the Lotus bring you tranquility…

At Ten Thousand Villages of Austin, we’ve just gotten in a wide array of new items in our Lotus (blue and white home accents) collection. All fair trade, all handmade, all the time!

The lotus is revered because it is typically born out of muddy water, producing a beautiful bloom that unfolds at the dawn of each morning. It has become a symbol of peace and tranquility. Like the lotus flower, these new items can bring YOU peace and tranquility in your home!
