Tribal Heart London

Tribal Heart London is founded by Michelle, who growing up in  Southeast Asia always coveted all things unique and beautiful, especially when it came to decor for the home. Finding beauty in the hidden and collecting treasures to further fill her surroundings became a passionate hobby of her. Inspired by far off places TRIBAL HEART is a collaboration of the things she loves....TRIBAL HEART brings these items from exotic corners of the world straight to London and their online store. 
These shell collars are inspired by the body ornaments used by the sea-faring peoples of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia's outer islands, including Borneo, Sulawesi, Sumba and Moluccas. These tribes wear the jewellery for ritual or ceremonial functions. Handcrafted by local artisans who skillfully apply the age-old techniques, styles, and patterns associated with their tribal groups. This handmade piece can be used for display or also worn as a necklace.

Indie Brands

Indie Brands delves into the world of independent brands. The wrote a book which shows the creative people behind the brand, the visual eye candy they create, the space they work in and the inspiring items they surround themselves with. The brands literally come from all over the world and vary in size – from one-man brands to medium-sized corporations. And they all sell different products. But as true indie brands they share three important characteristics: they’re independent, they have a story worth sharing and they all understand the magic of marketing. And last weekend the organized a local goods weekend market  in The Hallen in Amsterdam, selling only locally produced goodies...wish i could have been there..The Hallen is a really cool cool building, it just opened....and with the inspiring market there...that must have been a rock n roll of local bliss...good news is they will be back..

Skinny laMinx

Skinny laMinx is kind of a hobby that got out of control. She started a blog in 2006, showing the things she had made for fun in her studio. People seemed to like them, so she opened this Etsy shop, and started selling printed t-shirts and tea towels, stitched cushions and hand cut magnets. Then a wholesale enquiry arrived, she decided to take it on, and before she knew it, it was big business...She opened a brick-&-mortar shop in Cape Town at the end of 2011, and every day it is jam-packed with customers, orders & things to do. South African based Heather is a big fan of mid-century and Scandi design, which shows in her work. She finds inspiration for her work all around. She sees patterns in knives, forks, jugs, teapots, keys, plants, seeds, shoes, and just about every ordinary thing she sees. Or she sketches at home....Must be great to create like that...Oh, and the name "Skinny laMinx"? It comes from a playground chant that goes 'Skinnymalinky Long Legs, Big Banana Feet...", and mixed up a bit, it's a cheeky little name. I like...Beautiful designs...i blogged about her 3 years ago or something...it was already a treasure...and everything is made in Capetown...

Ix Style

Ix Style (pronounced “eye ex”) was just launched a few months ago by Francesca Kennedy. Ix is the Mayan word for water. For every pair purchased, they donate to provide clean drinking water to children. Ix's heart and focus is in Guatemala, which is where Francesca's family is originally from. Ix Style was founded by siblings, Francesca and John Kennedy. They were always motivated by the poverty, violence and lack of opportunities for education and the alarming need for clean water in Guatemala. On a flight to visit her grandfather in Panajachel, Guatemala, Francesca read "start something that matters" by Toms founder Blake Mycosie. During the trip, Francesca saw children drinking toxic water. She knew she had to do something to help. Inspired by gorgeous, hand woven Mayan textiles and leather craftsmanship, Ix Style was created...Their mission: to provide clean drinking water to children ad communities. By buying one gorgeous pair, you help finance and provide clean drinking water. Each purchase makes a difference in freeing up time for kids to spend it at school....and is fair trade for the crafters...
Beautiful! The shoes and the concept and the going hand in hand of looking good and doing good....or foot to foot...now which color to pick..or you take m all....
