The latest stationery collection from Sydney based The Adventures Of is a sophisticated extension of their existing range, incorporating beautiful marbled die-cut notecards, envelope sets and gift tags in the most beautiful muted palette. The results are striking yet subtle, and versatile enough for all occasions.
I kind of loathe talking ‘trends’ but it is worth noting, marble-inspired patterns are totally having a moment right now (well, a kind of 12-month long moment) – we’re seeing swirling marble patterns on everything from wallpaper to soft furnishings, and even fashion and accessories.
‘Like finger painting as a kid, marbling is a free and unpredictable kind of technique’ explains Amanda of this new direction. ‘It has been a lot of fun to work with this method – it took us back to when we were kids! Childhood nostalgia is something we’re always trying to achieve in our work’.
It’s been a bit year for Amanda and Ben. Since launching their business just over a year ago in late 2013, their fledgling label has won many fans, and is now available in over 30 stockists nationally and a handful of stores in New Zealand and the USA.
Amanda and Ben are looking forward to going on a big adventure this year – they have a road trip around America planned with close friends. ‘Not only is adventure good for the soul, but we also know it will inspire new and exciting creations!’ says Amanda… ‘Plus, it would be awesome to pick up some more international stockists!’.
The new marbles range will soon be available online here, and at stockists nationally, listed here.
