Three handmade ceramic buttons, fern design by Nikau Designs

Christchurch designer, illustrator and ecologist Lynette of Nikau Designs creates beautiful ceramic buttons inspired by the New Zealand environment. Many of her pieces are made using handmade moulds taken from shells and sea urchins she collects while beachcombing. We think these make the perfect finishing touch to a special outfit or a handmade gift!

Quiet Moments - Grey Leather Journal by Bibliographica

We are constantly in awe of Auckland artisan Louise of Bibliographica – she makes the most beautiful books with attention to every tiny detail, from the intricate hand stitches and embossing to the vintage embellishments and tea-stained pages.

This unique leather journal would be absolutely treasured by an artist, writer, or traveller, and it makes a perfect gift for an important milestone or special occasion. What would you add to its pages?
