mine for summer


I love the pieces and styling by UK designer Katherine Pont of Mine. The current collection called 'I gave my love a papercut' is kind of sweet and kind of edgy. From the paper doll to the hanger, each piece is made with a story in mind combining Katherine’s hand-drawn embroidery and print embellishments...see more details here...

I always love seeing the newest Student of the Month over at Reform School. This month's new student/artist is TribeWanted
with the arrival of a limited edition of hand-painted, silk-screened Fijian Baby Zaishus. A portable, simplified seat / table / box that slots together without nails, screws or glue. Based on a program of participation, creativity, responsibility and evolution, the Zaishu Project is an international collaborative event, recording patterns, designs and cultural texture from around the world on sheets of plantation grown veneer.
