Erika Harder Jewellery

Here at Pookipoiga we are so lucky to stock some absolutely amazing products, and we are delighted to introduce our new jeweller, Erika Harder. Her story began two years ago, when her best friend told her that she had been signed up to her Christmas Fete at work. Erika was working full time as a secondary school teacher, was a milliner by trade and had planned to start her own business making wedding dresses. When asked what she was to make for the market her friend looked at her and simply said, "I don't know, you make beautiful things. You'll work it out."Challenged and pressed for time, Erika visited her local gift shop in Hawthorn to get ideas. After noticing...

Hive Beeswax Candles - what's so stupefying about them?

So you've got a candle? So what? It's made from beeswax? Now you're talking! We've got them too - beeswax, and only beeswax. Why? Read on, my friend, and you shall find out! Reason numero uno: beeswax candles are not paraffin - surprising? I think not! A natural by-product of the honey industry, rather than the petroleum industry, you can't go wrong.

Topheads Bamboo and Skate Sunglasses

What could be more wonderful than wearing recycled skateboards or sustainable bamboo on your face? And what? It even protects your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun? No way! Yes way! Topheads are based in Bondi, New South Wales, originating from a garage, where they made and distributed sunglasses to their friends. They have since generously expanded to include new friends, including us, so that more people can look cool in their sunnies. They do some amazing work with bamboo, recycled skateboard, recycled stone and recycled wood, which have to be seen to be believed. There are few words to describe how awesome their selections are, but I'll try my best :) Eco-friendly material Spring hinges Polarised lenses UVA...

Nine Yaks Scrumptious Cashmere

As Melbourne's weather cools down; as the sunny days become more rare and the rain becomes less of a possibility and more of a probability, we are turning towards clothing that we can wear like a second skin. If I were a goat, I would certainly carry around some extra wool knitted in the shape of a poncho, or a cardigan, or a jumper. As a matter of fact, even though I'm human, I want to do the same. Luckily for me, we are stocking a variety of Nine Yaks Cashmere designs. Not only are they light, warm, scrumptious and even more amazing than you could possibly imagine, but they are ethical as well! What? Ethical as well? Awesome! My favourite is...
