photoAlquimia is a design studio based in Madrid, Spain.  Carlos Jiménez is the photographer and Pilar Balsalobre is the art director, both involved in providing creative solutions in developing spaces, objects and events.  Their main source of inspiration is nature, trades and handcrafting techniques.  As they have written in their company philosophy it is evident that “nature has given them answers of unimaginable value”.

Earl’s Favourites

One of the reasons we visit Japan often is to scout many of their unique products.  We found these on the Japanese online marketplace, Creema.  These are the creations of Osawa, a fashion magazine editor and Saka, a textile design major and illustrator.  They make leather accessories and bags sold under the brand name, Earl’s Favourites.  They have a retail store in Tokyo and conduct workshops as well. 

You can view more of their accessories on their website and on Creema.

Ocean-Teabag


Found these whimsical collection of tea bags on Japanese site, Ocean-Teabag.
Don’t know much about the company but we will certainly try to find these
bags when we again visit Japan.  You can view their collection on their website and on Facebook.
