Why the Ginger jar?
Ginger Jars were first introduced by the Chinese as a storage canister for food staples (including ginger) in 221 BC. The different patterns decorating them had different significances. For example, many of the blue and white ones had the character for double happiness and were given as wedding gifts. “We chose the patterns with flowers for our embroidery designs because of our love for flowers at Jacaranda Living!” says founder, Cathy Deale.
The accent pieces add an unexpected and fresh complement to any room. A Tissue Box Cover and Guest Towel featuring the embroidered Ginger Jar can transform a bathroom. The throw pillows scatted on a white couch, or the boudoir on a bed. Choose from the blue and white collection for a crisp, timeless look, or the blue on natural linen that is so admired today.
So, are Ginger Jars part of a trend or are they just one of those beautiful accent items that started out serving a purpose and became a classic and enduring decorating staple? “We think that like the candle, which started out to fill a need for light and now fills our need for ambiance, it's here to stay!”
