ITAJIME SUPPLIES

January 24, 2016

 

Remember this post? Well, I just discovered All Things Acrylic, another shop specializing in itajime supplies! The coolest part of this shop is that they offer custom shapes and sizes. Also, if you are in NYC, check out Canal Plastics. I frequent them for all sorts of custom acrylic supplies (including dowels for Arashi shibori).

GET LOST TENTS

January 21, 2016

 

I am all about these Catori Life Hand-dyed tents, Created by Ben of Get lost Tents. The website explains the inspiration behind these beauties:

“Inspired by travels to the wild places of our earth, my goal is to create products that offer an escape from the hustle and stress of everyday life.  I strive to invoke the blissful feelings I get when standing alone under a canopy of towering redwoods, walking through the sand of a fog drenched beach, or watching the sunset from a desert mesa. My tents are handcrafted in Austin, TX using American made all natural cotton canvas and hand dyed using natural dyes.”
