Bleu de Chauffe and Le Baigneur November 22 2014
Christmas is fast approaching, and every year it seems that those who are the most special to us are always the hardest to buy for. I find that the presents that mean the most are the ones that have been made with the same care and appreciation that you have for the person in mind. Bleu de Chauffe bags are the perfect representation of that.
Made in Averyon, France, each bag is made by qualified artisans renowned for their skill, experience and expertise. They are committed to traceability and ethically source all of their materials. A vegetal tanning process is used on all leather and the canvas bags are made with waxed cotton. You can truly feel the quality in these bags. Practical and stylish, each bag is signed and dated by the artisan.
Also from France, artisanal men's soaps from Le Baigneur. Le Baigneur aims to meet men's expectations by creating 100% natural, organic care products and favoring ingredients from local productions. The butters and oils used in production of the soaps are never heated, thus retaining the nutritional qualities. The shaving soap comes in two different scents and is available with a beautiful porcelain bowl. We also have boar-hair shaving brushes by Landon Dix to complete the set.
le baigneur soaps - $13.50-$59
Bienvenue Mon Petit! October 09 2014
Bonjour, oui oui, baguette. That's the extent of my french language skills.
I'm kidding, I'm pretty sure I could at least ask where the bathroom is. Why are we speaking french you ask? Because Mon Petit Art just arrived! So get your children ready to say bonjour to this awesomely creative line of kid's activities.
Mon Petit Art introduces art to children through creative toys and imaginative activities. All of their products are manufactured within the European Union and take special care to make sure that their certified materials come from durably managed forests. I would say you can sleep at night purchasing these products but I'm sure your kids will be keeping you up anyways.
"Discover Paris, Tokyo, New York, Moscow, Barcelona and London in 3D and and in miniature, designed by Mon Petit Art artists. 3D Color City is an artistic experience for the grown-ups and a design object for the adults." (It's fun to colour these in too!)
"Here is a very original colouring set. Once coloured, the precut sheets will fit easily into the support’s slots to create wonderful scenes with a striking and magical 3D effect. All the sheets are interchangeable and the support can be coloured as well."
"An Origami kit with beautiful papers, printed on both sides. The folding with wonderful color harmonies and metallic or fluo effect, will allow to create amazing origami figures! Leaflet 16 pages inside with lots of models to be done."
"This colouring book comes with dozens of beautiful stickers, that are to be stuck on the wonderful drawings, wherever kids like or on the dedicated sites."
"A unique construction experience, that will inspire children and adults to criss-cross wood and to invent amazing geometrical structures and wonderful wefts." (Weft is a threading technique that I had to google)
"Kids will be inspired to create amazing architectural designs with these large-scale construction set. With friends, family or on their own, whether it’s a hut, a theater, a playhouse, or a cube. All the pieces are in rigid cardboard. The pack is a convenient cardboard suitcase, easy for putting away or carrying out."
We also had a really cool line of fabric wall stickers come in from Love Mae. They make a cute addition to any room and are easily removable for you vagabonds. Because of the range of sizes, you can use them anywhere from your laptop to the entire wall of your child's room (assuming your children trust your design choices, which they should if this is what you've decided to decorate with).
