In A Bind
We love the gorgeous cards and notebooks by The Weave Co., which use traditional fabrics like Japanese fan prints, Ceylonese stripes and Indonesian batik for its stationery line. Now going further, it’s launching their own homeware line, kicking off with a collection of highly patterned cushions. One set are made from hand block printed fabric from Jaipur, India and another crafted with traditional ikat fabric from Indonesia. New designs from Rwanda and Zambia will be added in the leadup to Christmas with other items including tableware. Prices start at $48.90, available through their website.
All-organic beauty queens rejoice! Hands + Feet Studio has launched Singapore’s first eco nail varnish (without any added nasties like toluene, dibutyl phthalate or formaldehyde). Coat nail polishes ($25 each) come in 20 glossy colors and promise to last for days while being kind to your nails.
New Balance’s new range of shoes are designed for night runners, with reflective panels to catch passing lights. You’ll stand out better to passing motorists and look flashy at the same time. The shoes also have breathable air mesh and a blown rubber sole to cushion your feet. Styles start at $149 from New Balance Concept Store.
Casio has a neat new camera that can be twisted and turned for better photo taking (not that we needed any more excuses to take selfies). The EXILIM EX-FR10 comes in two parts so the lens can be moved around to shoot new angles. The camera itself is also WiFi-enabled, meaning quicker uploads to Instagram. It comes in orange, green and white and is available for $699 at Best Denki.
