Glass Piggy Bank




These photos don't do these piggy banks justice. Made of hand-blown borosilicate glass,
this bank features a coin deposit slot in the top and a removable wooden snout for easy
withdrawal. The larger bank sports a wooden tail and the piglet has a curly glass tail.
 
 

Cardboard Innovation

One of the first products we had at our shop were these wildly popular Cardboard Safari
trophy heads. These projects from English artist/designer Giles Miller takes this concept
even further. Using cardboard, one of the most simple and inexpensive material, he creates
beautifully upscale and high-end design. Love his a cleverly named line of "heirloom"
products, like a cardboard grandfather clock and wardrobe.

Owl Nesting Doll




The Owl + Nesting Doll = AWESOME. The owls nest inside each other teaching the
fundamentals of size and shape while engaging reasoning skills (larger birds do not fit in
smaller birds), which strengthen problem-solving abilities. Rock and balance to learn
spatial awareness and to fine-tune hand-eye coordination. Strengthen fine motor skills
by separating the birds and putting them back together. These functional features
combined with the beautiful colors and natural wood creates a truly one-of-a-kind,
playfully smart nesting toy!


 
 

Boya! Cats!

Feel like these prints were made just for our shop. These prints are made by graphic
design student Boya Latumahina who now lives in the UK. This self-initiated project was
made by using celestial images from the Hubble telescope. Just awesome.

Happy Red Fish

Came across this amazing work from Hager, the Dutch designer behind Happy Red Fish
while going through one of our favourite daily sites. Was originally drawn to a very cute
and sweet whale plush, so was pleasantly surprised to see the rest of Hager's textile work,
which is a bit more subversive and sooo awesomely weird. Using traditional thread, fabric,
all the work here has  a great modern twist and super sense of humor. Our logo and alot
of our other creative work is based on embroidering (which is one of the most relaxing
things you can do) so this work definitely inspires us to think beyond the normal stitching
grid pattern.

Brain (WE ARE 1976) Stationary



The first WE ARE 1976 stationary set is here!!! Again, we're in a bit of a creepy mindset
here these days, these two different brain illustrations (different perspective of a dissected
brain and one of the brain attached to the spinal cord) are hand-printed with acetone on
heavy weight card stock. The addressee label on the button tie craft envelope is also hand-
printed. These images were sourced from a salvaged neurology medical book from 1904.
Each set comes with 2 of each design with 4 envelopes.
