Madesmith

Brooklyn & LA based Madesmith is an online shop that features artisans who make limited edition textiles, jewellery, accessories, homeware and other goods with a focus on supporting local makers & craftmanship. they also feature stories on all the producers, sharing their workspaces, what inspires them, keeps them motivated, and their thoughts on the city where they live and work.

We believe in ‘buy less, buy well’. By knowing where our things come from and who makes them, not only do we cherish the things we have, we also become more aware of the environmental impact of our purchases. Through connecting with the makers, we support our local communities and preserve the craftsmanship that becomes part of our everyday culture.

Of A Kind giveaway!

Enter to win this leather messenger bag by Joy Gryson!

* the giveaway is now closed *


perhaps you can tell that i kind of have a thing for the awesome Of a Kind, this is our fourth giveaway together! i’m always excited to see what amazing new edition they are going to release next (currently eyeballing these earrings). and even more exciting, they have just launched Of a Kind Collections, where you can shop pieces from the full collections of designers they’ve worked with – including Ace & Jig, Dusen Dusen, Eayrslee, and K/LLER COLLECTION.

today you can enter to win this beautiful blue leather Duane Park Messenger bag made especially for Of A Kind by New York based label IIIBeCa by Joy Gryson.

This is one of those bags that is almost too good for words. Made from sturdy blue-gray leather in a classic, flap-front shape, it has the sort of details—white edges, lime lining—that’ll make you wanna carry it always. But if you DO want to switch things up, you can snap out its lining and move the entire contents to another carryall.

you might say that Joy is a bit of a bag expert, as she used to design accessories for Coach, Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs before starting her own label. you can read all about what she keeps in her own bag here, and don’t miss her food guide to Tribeca - i wish i’d had this in my back pocket on our recent trip to NYC. to enter:

(1) sign up for the Of a Kind newsletter on the giveaway page
(2) leave a comment telling me one thing you always have in your bag, no matter what. (mine is this)

Hannah Hoffman

Hannah Hoffman is a jeweller from Columbus, Ohio who has a background in glass art & metalsmithing. she recently launched her website sporting a lovely line of jewellery, with a rad lookbook styled by Sally Mcleod and photographed by Michelle Maguire.

My metal work demonstrates a balance between the industrial and the unrefined.  I am instinctually drawn to produce a geometric, almost harsh aesthetic.  Therefore, I often challenge myself to alter the ‘cleanliness’ of the work, by creating it in a way in which allows variation in the finished piece.  This is my way of relinquishing some control of the outcome and giving the piece itself freedom to diversify.

Bon

you may remember this rad lookbook for Tucson based mom-and-daughter owned shop Bon Boutique. they released their new lookbook a while back – they only do one a year – and it’s lovely. photography by Kate Edmonson.

Bon is a shop in Tucson, Arizona where we- mother and daughter- Bonnie and Crystal Flynt- offer a collection of our favorite things. The two of us share a love of things that are well designed and well made. We like a mix… new and old, rough and refined, dark and colorful, east and west, fun and serious… the beauty is in the way it’s all put together.

Egretta Garzetta

i must confess that underwear is pretty much at the bottom of my list of priorities when it comes to clothes shopping. big purchases are reserved for shoes, leather goods… maybe the occasional fancy dress. but undies, those come in packs of 5 and usually cost me less than a take-away dinner. but i still like the idea of fancy underwear. there’s also something incredibly cool about knowing your underwear is handmade (as if you’re a French aristocrat lazing about at Versailles all day). that’s where Egretta Garzetta comes in. affordable handmade lingerie, bras and panties made in Riga, Latvia.

Egretta Garzetta offers you the comfort and quality of handmade underwear. Every item in my shop is created from carefully selected materials and designed to gently fit the sensitive parts of your body. This lingerie is created by female hands for female needs – with a wish to make you feel beautiful and as comfortable as you can. Here you will find light and soft pieces, reminding the fluff of a dandelion, pieces as expressive and colorful as a tropical butterfly, pieces to match an active lifestyle… and a lot more!

&Attorney

&Attorney is an Australian shoe brand that, upon browsing through their website, made me say out loud – “i want that one, and that one, and that one, and that one…” from their classic loafers, to their sweet clogs and unique stacked sandals (love the mint!) i can honestly say i love every single pair of shoes they make.

at &Attorney we employ a “let’s ride this horse backwards” approach when designing in an effort to create truly charming men’s and women’s shoes. This allows us to look back with fond appreciation at the classic styling that has come before, while fulfilling a personal desire to perpetually move things forward.
