We spoke to fashion designer and stylist, Paris Mitchell, about her favourite pieces from the Everyday Needs range. Paris is part owner and creative director of beautiful new online boutique,The Mercantile.
01 Martino Gamper board // $150
I first spotted this Martino Gamper Board at my brother’s place, and got one the first opportunity I had. They’re unfussy and angular — the perfect chopping board.
02 Sans Perfect Body Wash // $38
I’ve always been told by beauticians to look out for vitamins A and E in skincare products and by using Sans Perfect Body Wash I am obeying! It's a bonus that Sans is packaged so beautifully and smells incredible — we’re addicted at home.
03 Hario Glass Teapot // $69
This 1920s style Japanese teapot has been a feature in my kitchen for a while now. It sits beautifully on my Martino Gamper Board. It’s the perfect marriage of scientific glassblowing and craft-based making.
04 Hand knitted cloths // $39
By local talent Harriet Were, the array of muted tones won’t have you hiding your dishcloths any more. Better yet, Harry’s handknitted dishcloths are reusable and are made from organic eco-dyed cotton.
I’ve always loved how paper lanterns are a harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form. This Hotaru Buoy light is at the top of my Christmas wish list.
