Artist interview: Anna Alicia

Anna Alicia is the artist behind our most recent pattern feature the DIY Pom Pom Bag. We fell in love with her book, Bags, upon receiving it in the mail. Annas non-traditional road to accessory design began by receiving her degree in Art History at the University of Kent and an MA in Fine Art at Central St Martins. Her degrees play a large role in inspiring her work along with childhood travels and the everyday bustle of working and living in London. From wall hangings to ceramics Annd designs with a focus on contemporary design & ethical materials. We know youre going to love her as much as we do! Read on to get to know her more!

Favorite places to buy boy clothing

The number one question I’ve received in the last year and a half is “where do you buy clothing for Jasper?” And I get it! Finding non-sports/camouflage boy’s clothes is a challenge. It’s not exactly something you can find locally at a mall and boutiques generally error on the side of girl’s clothing (this is one reason I wanted a girl so badly–the pinafores, smocking, tights, bloomers!). BUT, I have done my research and I have found some really awesome vendors who I love and I think you might love too.  Read on →

DIY Rope Purse

Okay Lars family, has anyone else had their eyes on rope purses as of late?! It seems like everyone is doing a version of one, and our favorite part is all the beautiful colors that come with them! Whether it’s a simple shoulder bag or a tote, we’re really loving all of it. And as you all know, if there’s one we really love, it’s making our own version of the things we think are beautiful. We’re not going to lie, this one started out a little tricky; our first version ended up having some knots we’re pretty sure even the Boy Scouts don’t know. We decided to go for some simple spirals on our second try which, we’re happy to report, went very well! Read on →
