I feel a bit mean showing you all these terrific pieces from Gemma Patford as they aren’t all available! But I wanted to share the range and experimentation she has got to so far in crafting with rope. Such a talent!
I am loving the simple slices of colour on the bags and vessels here which are left overs from her range commissioned for recent The Design Files Open House.
Liking what you see? you might be keen to learn from the clever maker herself! Check out the dates for her workshops here.
The latest hand made leather goodies from NZ born, Brooklyn based label; Reid Damnit.
You can have a good browse through the whole collection here on Etsy and if you like, revisit the story of spunky designer Kelly Reid who I met and interviewed in her New York studio/home in late 2012.

While checking out the Lepus Australis exhibition in Melbourne last week I spotted the stand out silk scarf submitted by Sydney based artist, Megan McKean and made a note to go stalk her online. And that I did! It seems scarves are a favourite format as you can see here with her collection celebrating the cities of London, Amsterdam, Sydney, San Francisco and New York. That NYC one is my favourite.
Toodles Noodles definitely prances around the top of the pile of independantly produced NZ stationary and giftware brands. There is a large range of printed goods on offer reaching from wrapping paper, calendars, cards and prints to these cool totes and fabric gift wrap which I am loving. Designer Liora Saad has not only poured her style into her continually growing collection but also a great website where you should go for a wee trawl.
