Knots and Knits

I met Megan who is behind this gorgeous little label last year at Maryanne Moodie’s Weaving classes up in Brisbane. She has completely cornered the market for these classy yet casual hand knitted bags and clutches in her signature quality rope and brass fittings. She makes every single one of them herself and also releases one off’s and numbered run’s for that ultra unique touch. The label seems to be catching on quite a bit up north, I saw a couple as I was wandering around at Christmas time up in Brissy- its high time we saw a bit more of Knots and Knits coming down Melbourne way! If you want something a bit different, great quality and a perfect summer bag- this is it.

Follow Knots and Knits on Instagram (knotsandknits)to be the first in the know of limited releases, one off releases and new season sneak peeks! I mean the red version limited release around Valentines day was seriously amazing!

More than once The Design Files has beaten me to print by a day or two. I totally planned this post 6 weeks ago, and not going to shift just because Australia’s biggest blog did it this week also! If you have never read TDF by the way, its worth a squiz, very inspiring, and I have no idea how she comes up with so many ideas to publish a blog post daily!

Emeldo Designs
I had originally spotted these necklaces in The Woodsfolk earlier in the year, and was so in love with just how different they were, and really well priced too! Then once I had seen them once, I noticed that a friend of a girl I went to uni with was wearing these amazing pieces in some photos, and it ended up she is the designer behind them (keeping in mind my photographic memory for names and faces. That was photographic memory, not stalker!) Long story but pretty excited to have come across Emeldo!

These are rope necklaces and bracelets that are hand made on the Mornington Peninsula, and are so bright, easy to wear and affordable, you can pretty much get one of each! I Seriously get compliments on mine all the time! Ive included as usual a few pictures below but there is actually quite an extensive range with varying lengths (with more being added in the next day or two- according to instagram)!

Its amazing how something so simple is so effective in adding colour and glam to an outfit! (Sorry about the fashion descriptions, I’ve been writing children’s fashion descriptions all day for an online store, you can really get so corny and carried away writing like that!) Keep your eye out in media, these have been popping up everywhere from fashion shows to celebs. I’d probably say get yours now before prices skyrocket with demand and popularity! I couldn’t pick my favourites for the pics so sorry there is a bunch! Quite a few are sold out but as mentioned before new stock is promised to be up soon! All photos from Emeldo website.
