Autumn on my mind

While the hot, dry weather continues for many of us around New Zealand, there’s also been a chill in the air these last few mornings – signaling that Autumn is on its way.

Its warm tones and plentiful harvests provide inspiration for many of our makers. Autumn leaves are a rich theme, and we love the way the tumble of crunchy leaves is almost audible in this Autumnal “Secret Garden” bracelet from Pomare Designs.

Autumn is also the time of harvest and plenty, a feast for the body and inspiration for the mind of the maker. How about some of these gorgeous needle-felted pumpkins and acorns from Soft Earth Art, in pure New Zealand wool, to decorate your harvest table?

And then there’s that desire to hibernate, snuggling up against the coming winter. Coulter and Coulter‘s beautiful range of up-cycled blankets will keep you snug as a bug in your rug, while many of our other talented makers can dress you up nice and warmly against the coming chill.

Whether we want them to or not, the seasons will change, so join us in an Autumnal celebration.
