The Woven Bag

i have had an overwhelming response to the beautiful woven Kenyan bags that i posted about a while ago. the good news is that if all goes to plan i will hopefully start selling them in September! but in the meantime, if you’re into woven bags, here’s a nice round up for ya.

PS if you’re in Cape Town then check out Greenmarket Square and Design Afrika for woven bags. you can also find great vintage ones on Etsy & Kenyan ones at Hadithi.

Milk & Paper

do you ever daydream about living an alternate life? the one i often have is that i reside on some beautiful island in Greece (100% influenced by this book) and i bake my own bread and drink wine at 11am and carry fruit in a straw basket and i’m perpetually tanned and i just wear natural cottons and linens. no? just me then. well – that’s how i felt my life could be like when i saw these beautiful bags and baskets by Milk & Paper.

Gamma Folk

i don’t think i will ever tire of braided & woven necklaces. the more i see, the more i like. Gamma Folk is a jewellery line by Brooklyn based designer Lily Piyathaisere, and i like her necklaces a lot. these are from Collection Two, but i think the entire shop is worthing checking out. her pieces are also sold over at Madesmith, which i featured last year.

Our vision is to combine traditional techniques with thoughtful, statement jewelry. Influenced by folk art, mysticism, pop culture and the bauhaus, Gamma Folk is a celebration of aesthetics, experiments in technique and the preservation of craft.
