I’m very pleased to give you a heads up on NZ’s latest source of inspiration!

Pat Shepherd of One Percent Collective has worked tirelessly to liven-up the charity scene by working closely with artists, musicians and creative personality’s on projects with some kick, inspiration and best of all – great results!

In collaboration with design studio Goodfolk, wordsmith Rebekah White, illustrator Gina Kiel and a swathe of enthusiastic experts and sponsors, he today brings us a new project – the juicy The Generosity Journal.

With a modern focus on bringing inspiring stories from the world of business, charity, social enterprise and the arts, Pats simple goal is to inspire generosity. Issue one is packed with interesting thoughts from Kimbra to Seth Godin, Kowtow to Conrad Smith and my favourite –  an illustrated Q+A with five humans at different stages of life about trying “to make it good”.

Over the next few days The Generosity Journal being disributed freely throughout major centers and will be available from the sponsors you can see listed here. BUT never fear! You can also view the entire Issue One and awesome interviews online here too!

The name might have you guessing a little but Drugstore is a new Australian based online haven offering premium, artisan products for the mind, body, soul and home. In addition to the goodies like wooden tooth brushes, charcoal face puffs and exotic toothpaste, owner Pooja Sharma has also developed an in house brand featuring a black soap and beauty/beard oil. Good things to come here I think!

Definitely worth a look for your discerning gift giving!

ALAS (All Light All Shadow) are an Australian organic jarmie and loungewear brand which I have shared a number of times over the last few years. Its exciting to see not only their garment collections grow (LOVE these!) but witness the launch of a new collaboration with a like minded designer.

Sustainability and responsible production are important elements of the ALAS brand which is why it makes sense for them to join forces with Tara Whalley; an ethical designer who has spent the last year developing and sourcing collections with local artisans of the Guatamalan Highlands.

The first result is this debut slipper range!

You can see more of the people behind the production of the slips here or browse to your hearts content here!

NEW FROM INK + SPINDLE

Ink + Spindle. Melbourne, Australia.

Our good friends at Ink and Spindle have been beefing up their homeware offering by not only introducing some fresh handprinted textiles but transforming these into the quirky pyramini cushions, big squishy ottomans and more!

If I so had my way I would be making room for this ottoman and this pyramini

Despite the Ink + Spindle team now having a change of members/designers/makers, you might still be interested in revisiting the story and beginnings of their lovely brand here.

Woodfolk

Woodfolk Natural Accessories. Sydney, Australia.

I have and always will be an absolute sucker for neutral, natural, chunky jewellery which is why I thought all of our Friday’s would benefit from a look at the new collection by Woodfolk.
After pouring over their debut range earlier in the year – I am now having issues breaking down my favourites with the introduction of their stone beads and this particular necklace.
