I'm not usually one to gush over something so mundane. But hangers only seem mundane until you're faced with too little closet space, and then they become very important indeed.
I think our little house is darling, but the closet space is, well, not so spacious. I thought crushed clothes were to be my lot. it didn't occur to me that my choice of hanger could make all the difference in the world.
I first heard about Mawa hangers on designer Emily Henderson's blog. That's her closet above. Pretty, no? She claimed those hangers were fab, and she's right. They're coated in a grippy material, so nothing slips off, not even your silkiest dresses or tanks. They're also smartly shaped, so they don't give your knit goods those maddening shoulder bumps. And they're fashioned from steel, so they're extremely sturdy, too.
The Mawa line is diverse, offering options for hanging everything from sweaters to suits. I find that nearly all tops work with the super thin Silhouette Light style, though, which is very handy. Not only are they the least costly, they measure only 1/10" thick, which enables you to really maximize your storage.
Sure, Mawa hangers are a little more expensive than some other options. But if space is tight, I think this is money well spent. I'm pretty sure my clothes have never been happier. And my newly efficient closet? That makes me happy, too.
