There’s nothing more wonderful than the joy of giving the * perfect * gift. But it’s impossible to ignore the impact of the sheer quantity of STUFF that’s around at this time of year, from unneeded gifts given out of obligation to mass-produced Christmas-themed objects destined for the trash can on December 26th.
This month architect, designer and ideas-woman Sarah K (of Supercyclers and The Other Hemisphere) and Mr Kitly’s Bree Claffey introduce the latest in their For series, placing an emphasis on made-to-order, locally-produced pieces with minimal environmental impact and that stand the test of time.
The For series focuses on made-to-order, thoughtfully crafted items designed to become treasured practical pieces in our everyday lives. Sarah and Bree worked closely alongside For Gardening is a stunning collection tools and accessories created by Australian designers and gardening enthusiasts – including a delicate brass watering can from Anna Varendorff, an exquisite Rowsaan pruning saw, and handmade carryalls in cheerful colours by Daniel Emma.
The second release in Sarah and Bree’s For series (following on from For School in 2015), For Gardening is on show at Mr Kitly’s Brunswick space throughout December. The range is also to purchase through the Mr Kitly website.
