monochromatics…

We have added a few new items to our product range lately, mostly all of which just happen to be monochrome. We wanted to share them with you here!

Firstly we have a new placemat design hurrah! Geometric Monochrome. I know a lot of you out there are scared of a bit of colour so here is something that will work on your table every single time. Try mixing and matching with different monochromatic patterned napkins, or incorporate just a bright splash of colour like a bright burnt orange or even a sunny yellow, to be honest pretty much any colour will go!

We have a new stockist in New York opening up very soon (I know!!!!) and we just sent off our first order of products for them which included this Origami Birds scarf/sarong. I am going to make to order these so get in touch if you would like one too!

We have also changed our Origami Birds napkins. These ones are the same as the other new range napkins, 30 x 30cm in size and nice and thick, and available in sets of 2 in black and blue.

Introducing my new Wedding Napkins…

For all you people out there, who like me, have lots of friends tying the knot at the moment, I have have a new genius gift idea which you can pretty much give to everyone! Introducing…. my new Wedding Napkins. Custom printed and handmade napkins made using beautiful photographs taken on that special day.

I recently came up with this idea when I was trying to think of something completely unique and different to give to my friends for their wedding gift. I am always that person who thinks that I would rather give something a little more special than just choosing off their registry…specially when you’ve missed all the good things, and all that is left is a paper shredder (go figure??), and/or a cook book of some kind.

Anyways there we were in this beautiful beautiful location on a farm in the middle of nowhere in the Karoo. I think I must have instagrammed alot of pics to try and show everyone just how beautiful this part of our country is, and THAT is when I had the idea to use this beautiful setting to help create a wedding gift that will not only be unique, but unforgettable too.

Instead of using my not so amazing nor good quality instagram pics as I had planned, I got in touch with Shannon Bradfield, official (and brilliant) photographer and groom’s sister, to see if she might be able to let me use some of her beautiful shots. She was totally on board and sent me all high res shots I needed….and voila! A set of 6 beautiful photographs turned into a set of 12 beautiful napkins.

Available in sets of 6 big napkins or 8 smaller napkins. You can pre-purchase a set of Wedding Napkins at my online shop. I will email you an image to print out and give to the lucky couple to let them know about your super awesome and very special gift on the day. They can then put me in touch with their photographer and help choose which images they would like to use, or I can choose for them. I’ll get them printed and made up and will post/courier them straight to the lucky couple’s door!

If you would like any more information please check out my online shop or email me directly. I am happy to help : )

Available now in the Irish Design Shop…

I am delighted to let you all know that Handmade by me is going to be stocked by the lovely Irish Design Shop. “Founded in 2008 by jewellers Clare Grennan and Laura Caffrey, Irish Design Shop stocks the best of Irish design including ceramics, woodwork, textiles, jewellery and furniture. We provide a selection of best quality, design-led products, all produced by makers living in Ireland.”

And so I have been very very busy lately making lots and lots napkins, and cushion covers, to sell in their two lovely stores in Dublin. They are also planning to showcase some of my products at the Re-dress Better Fashion Initiative, which is an organisation dedicated to promoting better fashion practice, and is on until the 29th of April.

Here are a few pics of some of the napkins I’ve been working on…
