In our search for inspiration we happen to come upon the Dutch brand, Atelier “Sukha”, which in Sanskrit means “Joy of Life”. Founders and designers Irene Mertens and Sam IJsbrandy travel to the poorest region of India and Nepal finding small handicraft companies to manufacture their classic, durable and sustainable line. All their products are made out of pure and natural materials like wood, wool, lokta, linen, cotton and cashmere produced with a subtle color palette. You can follow them on Facebook and purchase their products on their website which provides international deliveries.

Himo Art was founded by Japanese self-taught artist, May Sterchi, after discovering a newfound love for interior design. The San Diego-based designer uses calligraphy to inspire her hand crafted weavings and rope work. Some of her pieces can be found at Urban Outfitters where she was featured in their blog. You can follow Himo Art on Facebook and purchase her designs on Etsy.

Mondocherry is a homeware store located in Malvern, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The company is the conception of two sisters, Clare Scholes and Joy Stewart, along with their mother, Sue Hopper. They launched their store to showcase original designs as well as work from other international designers and artisans. We particularly like their range of layered hand cut paper shapes formed into a sculptural piece and framed in a shadow box. You can follow them on Facebook and see their range of products on Instagram.
