VIVA AFRICA

      

DARKROOM ADE cushions = Unique African wax-printed cotton cushion cover with contrast piping and duck-feather filled cushion pad. The cushion cover has a concealed zip fastening. Each cushion is handmade so pattern placement may differ slightly from the image. Slight runs and inconsistencies are a natural outcome of the wax printing process, merely adding to the charm of these pieces. Machine washable.

THE NEW ARTISANS HAS ARRIVED!

After a year in the making, I am thrilled to announce the release of my first book!

It is a labor of love, it comes from a passion of mine (as you have all seen through Dossier37) and what I wish will be a long term commitment for all things creative and hand-made.

The new Artisans - 320 pages, 850 illustrations - features 75 artisans/artists/designers across 19 countries and is a great resource for contemporary living.

The 75 talents reinvigorate traditional techniques (glass, textile, wood, metal, ceramics, paper) through the creation of unique or limited edition, functional or purely decorative, inspiring, desirable, meaningful objects. The antithesis of uniformized, mass-produced, disposable, anonymous and low quality goods we are saturated with.

Please visit and ideally join the Facebook page, where regular updates are posted (interviews, comments, reviews..etc), and if you like it, please ‘like’ it!

It is published by Thames & Hudson in Australia, the UK and USA, but is also available in English language in a number of other countries (Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, Japan, Brazil, Spain…)
