Spacecraft


Stewart Russell relocated from London to Melbourne, Australia after perfecting his textile design and production skills in Sri Lanka, Scotland and London designing for the likes of Vivienne Westwood. At Spacecraft he and long term collaborator Donna O'Brien develop contemporary textile designs for use in Spacecraft's fashion line as well as linens and canvases. It is his back cloth paintings that have developed a cult following with a long waiting list of potential collectors. These back cloths are the result of the overprints and seepage of the day to day printing of designs. Serendipity produces eye catching artworks.

Bholu


Kim and I received an email from Jodie Fried. Jodie is the woman behind the inspired idea of bholu. The range includes cushions, throws, journals, slippers and a cute children's range of line and cuddlies. Products are designed in Australia but brought to life by Gujarati women in India using traditional techniques and motifs drawn by children of the slums. Even better bholu is a Fair Trade company and part of the proceeds go back to the women and their communities, along with funding educational facilities for underprivileged children.
