Above: No Maine house is complete without a hardy wool throw, like the Heritage Throw by Maine blanket makers Swans Island Company. Inspired by traditional New England textiles, each throw is handwoven in Maine with wool sourced from local farms (a blend of Corriedale and dark rare wools), finished with naturally dyed Merino wool stripes and a woven silk edging. Above: Portland-based Campfire Pottery is giving away one earthy-meets-minimalist . H Sandstone and White Speckle Large Classic Planter and-thrown and left unglazed inside for a rustic look, it’s ideal for growing herbs on the kitchen counter or flowers on the porch. Above: Sea Bags, based in Portland, Maine’s working waterfront, transforms recycled sail cloth into totes and accessories (since 1999, they’ve upcycled 700 tons of disused sails). The winner will receive the company’s original design, the Wharf Tote , made from rugged sail cloth and hand-spliced rope handles. Inspired by a fisherman who used it to carry essentials around the nearby wharf, the tote is designed to stand up to all kinds of use—as a beach bag, farmer’s market carry-all, or at-home storage.
