Made by Shabibi Sheep Workshop
Shabibi Sheep focuses on “fair faced concrete” creations, and this tray is heavy, industrial, yet peaceful and zen-like. The pattern on these concrete works of art are “drawn” in the mold for every piece, therefore each are unique.
Made by Kamlor
The mauhom Thai fabric is breathable and full of texture. Made with natural materials including wood, wax rope, hemp and mauhom fabrics, Kamlor’s handbound journals are soulful items one can only dream of finding.
Once you get into indie design stationery, it’s hard to go back to mass-manufactured. However, “less is more” still holds: it might take just one meaningful piece of handmade craft to make all the difference.
