the quaint economy

Postby mike868y » Fri Jan 16, 2015 3:09 pm

it's easy in the world of fashion to get wrapped up in boutiques, designer goods, etc. but now more than ever there is a plethora of quality, handmade goods easily available. post cool finds from etsy and similar places.

Cool stuff. All hand knit (not sure if by one person, I assume not), and with a 3-6 week waiting time. Still, seems like nice materials and awesome designs. Definitely gonna kop.

Hand-woven, dyed. Very cool looking scarves that I eventually want to purchase.

I should add that I own a bunch of stuff in the OP (alpaca scarf, copper cuff, key chain) and have been really happy with it all.

california poems scarf by leah goren, handpainted silk chiffon. strongly considering buying this—fits perfectly with my love for lettering.

just found this linen shop out of the UK on etsy. absolutely gorgeous stuff. messaged them to see if they could make up this jacket with a standard collar in a mens cut.

Image

they also do some really nice scarfs and work shirts...drool.

Image

Image

and of course their women's is great...

Really like this brand, great leather, and cool laces for shoes.

^have you tried any of their stuff? stumbled upon their insta account the other day. bites of the visvim look a little too much for me, but I could definitely see myself rocking one of those medicine bags.

These handmade leather shoes from here

Image
This shop has some great prints on Furushiki.

Image
I'm a huge fan of Satomi Kawakita's jewelry designs. Very minimal and have a handmade feel to them - the rings aren't perfectly circular, etc.

Image
While this isn't fashion related I wanted to share this etsy shop in regards to ceramics. Again, very simple in the Japanese sense.

speaking of shoes, aurora shoes out of upstate new york are stocked by nepenthes (cheaper than buying them direct too) and make really cool leather slip ons (similar to birks in a way). will definitely cop when my birks get worn out.

women's floral blazer — US size 4 — $74 USD

Image

excellent travail en famille vibes and also in line with my current fascination for "your body is a greenhouse" prints. someone please cop this ~ think of how glorious you will look ~ dark florals, gotta love them ~ haven't you always wanted to drape yourself in deeply luxuriant leaves ~
