I love discovering new local creatives who are designing fabulous sustainable products. Today my heart was all a flutter when I came upon Michelle Harvey’s hand crocheted jute homeware designs which she sells under the brand name Crayon Chick. Natural jute is given an eye popping lift with bright neon splashes at the base or top of beautifully hand woven sleeves which fit snug over glass vessels ~ perfect for holding fresh cut or dry flowers. I also love the idea for storing pens and pencils too – would suit me down to a “T” as I tend to leave them on bench tops all over the house.
Michelle’s homeware range extends to great storage bowls for all those other bits and pieces we have lying around too. Great for everything from coins, keys and sunglasses to the kids toy car or jewellery collection!
Michelle also creates playful garlands which would look great strung across a girls room. But they’re certainly not just the reserve of kids. I could equally see them hung across my office space to soften the room. And they look particularly good against vintage furniture finds!
If you love what you see, do pop on over to the Crayon Chick store for a peek. She is one creative lass who is passionate about sustainable materials and design. A perfect mix.
