Happy New Year! May your year be filled with beautiful local hand-made homewares and accessories…

The Maker & Merchant team have had a few weeks off for Christmas, but we are all back on board for 2014.

We have a couple of new addition to our shop including our outrageously huge playroom cushions for the kids.  These are all hand drawn on linen blend with contrasting piping and filled with 100% recycled PET which is created using sustainable methods.

We are totally obsessed with these hand dipped 100% cotton tassels. Of course in our Maker & Merchant signature colours – minty fresh green, soft dove grey and sweet, sweet yellow. Whether your style is coastal cool or shabby chic these tassels sell it!

Warming up the reindeer for Finders Keepers next weekend!

We can’t wait for Finders Keepers Market next weekend! We love it!

Being a mainly online based store it’s a definite  treat for us to get out and about and talk with our customers and other designers about current and upcoming trends and to see the fantastic work other local designers are producing! We can only imagine that the carnival atmosphere of Finders Keepers will be extreme as we jettison into the festive season!

Here is some of our work that you’ll be able to find at the markets next weekend!

We’re still all about bright summer colours … we’ve stocked up on our hand drawn favorites;  neons pink, yellow and  orange and we’re bringing along some new Australiana cushion designs too – we’re feeling very patriotic.

Dreamy days by the beach, warm summer breezes, tropical cocktails and Panama hats have inspired a new range of hand dyed, hand painted linen cushions.

wallets

Our farmed kangaroo leather wallets were a favourite last time, and they make a great Christmas gift! In addition to tan, our new range in black is lined with a hand printed Story Bridge detail in neon green or neon red a second leather pocket inside for cards. The soft gold wallets are lined with hand printed antler print linen.

 

Summer-weight patchwork blankets for kids and adults

 

We’ve made a special effort to expand our range of summer weight bamboo, cotton and hand drawn linen quilts to include some fabulous gifts for the little ones, and not so little ones too.

And of course we’ll have our tea towels range including this Christmas set! Perfect for a Christmas hamper or stocking filler.

We’ve got a new and improved spot this time at the market with more room and more stock!

You’ll find us at the beginning in Studio #1, store 205.

Come along to the Old Museum next weekend and say hello!

 

 

 

New and unique homewares for spring and summer

Here at Maker & Merchant HQ we are so glad it’s finally spring!

Over the winter we have been working away on a new Spring/Summer range and are super excited to finally reveal …

New cushions from Maker and Merchant

A peek at Maker & Merchant’s new range

Hand dyed and painted linen cushions in a bright colour pallet have us very excited.  Our inspiration for this range is found on the corner of street from Brisbane to Miami.  Yes its neon, but carefully tempered with subtle linen hand dyed for each style.

We are also fine tuning the designs for a range of what is shaping up to be very lovely cotton voile scarves inspired by the beauty of Indian traditional block prints with a Bambi twist. The finished product will be a luxuriously large, light weight, perfect for summer, must have accessory. I want one now!

Maker & Merchant are getting Out and About!

Our home wares are now available at 2 locations in Brisbane.
