The Fable

Sold Out


The Fable represents the Barrel Shack’s eclectic collection of home furnishings that will brighten your home through textures and touch points that are at once unique and comforting. This small pillow featuring a star prominently on the front has been designed to replicate reclaimed materials like goat leather from old sofas and canvas from old military tents. Each of the four corners on the Fable have a symmetrical leather patch that borders the star in the middle perfectly.

A fable is one of the most endearing and enduring forms of folk literature that spreads around the world. From parents or grandparents to children and from teacher to student, stories are told day and night to give a moral compass to us all. One of the most famous fables is the Fable of the Star Thrower. 

There was once a young boy who came across thousands of starfish washed ashore by the tide, and he began throwing them one-by-one back into the ocean to try to save them. An old man happened by and asked, “There’s miles of beach and too many starfish. Don’t you know you can’t save them all?” The young boy continued to throw starfish into the ocean, saying “I made a difference for that one. And that one. And that one.”

The moral of the story is that you can make a difference in one person’s life, and that might be enough. 

Let the Barrel Shack’s Fable make a difference in your home by keeping alive the tradition of storytelling.
