Sheep-ish Merino Baby Blankets

  We have recently started stocking Sheep-ish Merino Baby Blankets made by Nadia. She makes them in Melbourne, using vintage knitting machines. Each blanket is 100% Australian Merino Wool, made lovingly by Nadia's own machines. They come in a variety of soft colours - so your hardest decision will be choosing which one! Nadia began exploring domestic knitting machines in 2012, after years of hand knitting - a skill taught to her by by her grandmother, which developed into a healthy obsession of wool and knitting.   Nadia operates her knitting machines in Fitzroy, alongside another of our favourite artists, Milton Ashby. The blankets are beautifully soft and are the perfect size for swaddling newborns, packaged with a gorgeous Sheep-ish box,...

EcoBling Jewellery

EcoBling create beauty from the craziest things - a necklace made from an old (loose translation: vintage) washing machine - not the whole washing machine (too heavy); earrings from recycled beer bottles (what better can be done with a beer bottle minus the beer?); a staircase moulded into the kind of style that stands out in the masses - a stepping stone to stardom, excuse the pun. At last count EcoBling had diverted 3 tonnes of waste from landfill and transformed it into sustainable, environment and people-friendly jewellery. Not only do EcoBling create beautiful pieces from recycled materials that would otherwise end up as landfill, but they also do all sorts of other amazing things. They work with Indigenous artists throughout Australia in order...

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. Rather than releasing harmful toxins into the air, beeswax candles release negative ions, meaning that it cleanses the air you breathe, negating the positive charge of air contaminants and neutralising the air. On top of that, HIVE only use 100% cotton wicks, so there are no extra nasties hiding in your wick - what a relief! You won't...

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...
