Monday Features

My first feature this week is Georgia of Ogekko. Georgia has been working with fabrics and textiles (and crafts in general) all her life. This interest in textiles led her to many different things, which included formal study in textiles, many years working in the costume field and just as many spent teaching - as well as a fair amount of travel.

Georgia now enjoys bringing all those influences into her own creations and making colourful clothes and quilts from interesting fabrics that she finds from around the world.

Georgia states that these are often directed towards children, since they seem to respond to and appreciate colour and pattern in their life as much as she does.

So for a great range of children's clothes in quite unique fabrics, many with an African influence, head on over to Ogekko.

My second feature is Lexa of Juntei. Lexa describes herself as an artist, illustrator, designer, student and geek! She lives in beautiful Sydney, Australia with her husband and cat, filling her days with creating and gaming.

Lexa would describe her style and sensibility as a mix of vintage, retro, punk and Asian. She hopes to share her unique view of the world through her card designs. Lexa specialises in hand-crafting unique greeting cards, journals, gift tags, and more, utilizing both vintage Japanese kimono cloth and gorgeous paper with Japanese designs.

In Juntei you will find not just a range of hand crafted cards but also some great looking journals all influenced by Lexa's love of Asian designs.

These two artisans are wonderful! The child's clothing is adorable! And the journal is beautiful. Think I'll have to go see what else they have!

Cheers!
