These handmade desk accessories from WorkPerch combine a mousing surface with a place to keep your pens. They’re available with leather, wool, or Alcantara surfaces, each backed with natural cork to protect your desk and prevent sliding. They also make a version without the pen tray. We also like their metal valet trays.
One of the lightest full-cover hoodies we’ve ever seen, the River Run Hoodie protects from the sun with dual-surface UL blended Merino wool. It shields from the heat and wicks sweat to keep you comfy and dry. Machine-washable, soft, thin, and light as feather, it’s a go-everywhere, do-everything adventure staple. USA-made by Voormi.
CitySheep handmakes these organizer pouches for carrying cables and other accessories. They’re crafted from natural wool felt and leather, and have two pockets for headphones, chargers, mice, and more. There’s also a leather pen/pencil loop and twin magnetic closures. They also make matching laptop and iPad cases.
We just want to reach out and touch the rich blanket texture of The Hill-Side’s warm and wooly long-sleever. The stripey fall shirt offers a relaxed fit so you can wear it as a lightweight jacket too. It’s made in NYC using a Japanese wool/cotton/poly blend fabric for softness and comfort.
Japanese artist Wakuneco shows us how she transforms wool into an intricate, nearly photorealistic sculptural portrait of a cat’s head. Anyone can learn the art of needle-felting, but it requires tremendous precision and persistence to get these sort of results. More here.
As they say on Game of Thrones, “winter is coming.” Always be prepared for the cold with The Hill-Side’s handmade boots, based on the design of a 1950’s US Air Force survival kit mocc boot. Made from warm wool felt, with a rubber outsole, and a versatile rope lace system.
