Peek. Bought. Handmade. (a new series!)


Ever wonder what pieces other artisans love most? Today we'll take a peek at some of the handmade pieces members of this team have brought home from other artisans & added to their personal collections.

Ira from iragrant, her Swiss-based shop full of handmade handbags, recently wrote about the beautiful scarf that arrived on her doorstep from Norway (from another Artisans Gallery team member, ingermaaike !)


"If you know ingermaaike's felts work, you will have realized how beautiful they are. I was always a big fan of hers, but you know what? I always have trouble photographing the real beauty of Inger's work.


So this afternoon, I tried it again.

I have this beautiful scarf that arrived today from Norway and I was speechless, it's so pretty and warm and soft and.....

oh well, here some shots for you! :)"

That is a stunning piece! Those leaves look as if they have been pick up from the ground a minute ago!

Oh wow! Thank you for choosing to show the scarf I sent you :)

The leaves ARE real, actual real skeleton leaves from a rubber tree. The residual rubber inside them makes them strong and flexible.

It looks like if you wore it you'd never want to take it off.
