GREEN


Sometimes young people approach me to ask questions such as: 
“I am really concerned about the environment, what can I do to help?”


One of the things I talk about is how easy it is to carry your own bag instead of using plastic bags at shops. 

I like to carry around a couple of these super convenient Envirosax. 

Here is a rolled up bag laid next to my new label maker for size comparison.


Envirosax available from Corky Saint Clair $10AUD each. Lots of cute designs such as this Green Robot Bag.

GREY


We have started reprinting some of our classic Corky's Mens Teeshirts. This was always popular - Charcoal mens tee with Japanese circles print. The pale areas are bleached into the tee and the light blue areas are printed in plastisol providing textural variation.

Available in small, medium, large and XL. Available from Honeybee, Corky Saint Clair and Kids in Berlin.

TULIP

Stylised scandavian seventies tulip place mat made from ultra durable industrial felt. Will take heat and is washable.

WALLET

Shara Porter is an artist and textile designer living in Massachusetts. 

An observation during a long drive prompted the designer’s current collection of handbags, shoes and small leather goods. Shara spotted a sign for a construction company with a picture of a dump truck on it. As she got closer, she also noticed a small unicorn on the corner of the sign. The funny, quirky combination of information and the misplaced creature inspired Porter to create similar juxtapositions with her collection of leather goods.

Porter loved the idea of taking an ultra-feminine purse and putting something unexpected on it, such as a tire or a ladder. The bags have since evolved to include all kinds of imagery, including more feminine and playful designs like birds and trees.

We have received our collection of custom printed Shara Porter wallets and card holders. The wallets and card holders are made from durable, supple leather and are made in the U.S.A. Each wallet is hand printed. 




Bicycle Print wallet. Can you imagine the looks of envy you would recieve if you pulled this sleek beauty out at Bikefest 2010?

Brontosaurus. Dinosaurs are so huge right now. 

T-REX wallet 'RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!'

Owl wallet. I suspect owls will never go out of fashion in Melbourne - and why would they? They are awesome.
I am totally into these card holders - they are smaller than normal wallets and fit snugly into super tight jeans.


I love coloured leather - it gives you a little buzz having brightly coloured accessories.


Available from Corky Saint Clair. Wallets $65AUD. Card Holders $49AUD. Prints and colours vary. Limited Stock.

MINI

This is the mini version of the semi-famous Bird in the Berry Tree. We did a silver plated version last year but this incarnation is nicer - the brushed finish is more resistant to finger prints.

We got some fine sterling silver curb chains custom made to fit the piece which make the mini Bird in the Berry Tree seem more delicate.

Mini Bird in the Berry Tree RRP $69
available from Corky Saint Clair , Kids in Berlin
