Hot Skwash for Fall

Hot Skwash’s beautiful home decorations is unique and has a story all it’s own.  Recycling unwanted pumpkin and squash stems from local farmers in the Portland area the founder Daria Knowles creates these excquisitel home decorations. Wrapsody exclusively carries this beautiful line of home décor created by Daria, a stay at home mom with a passion for beautiful fabrics, sewing and knitting. Using fine silks, velvets, linens and suede Hot Skwash truly is a high-end design to incorporate in the best table settings, mantle décor or even a pop of color on a desk (I have a friend with one sitting on her desk at work!)

It all began when founder, Daria Knowles left her job as art director of an art gallery in Denver, Colorado to become a stay at home mom. In 2002, Daria ran across a gingham holiday pumpkin at a gift store and noticed that the pumpkin had a crude stem. Being from a creative and art background she knew that by using these crude stems she could create something beautiful using high-end fabrics and fun colors. Over the next six years Daria created velvet pumpkins for friends and family members. They encouraged her to expand her creativity and start her own small business! When the demand became greater Daria brought other stay-at-home moms together who shared the same passion for the pumpkins.
