New work just in by Aberdeen based creation duo Freak Carousel. The pair create handmade resin jewellery and accessories with a punky edge. Felt skull brooches, leopard printed hearts in bright colours and glittery Scottie dogs are a few of my favourites. 


This month there are a whole host of new scarf designs at Concrete Wardrobe, in fabric combinations I never knew existed. Triple structured with reflective yarn, silk jersey, fringed wool voile, and my personal favourite; wool lycra buttoned mufflers. An outdoorsy take on the upcoming collar trend. Wearable for us in the northern hemisphere whos neckwear needs also to keep our necks warm.

This is a wee preview of the new whisky glasses designed by James Donald, co-owner of Concrete Wardrobe, which will be appearing this November as this months Maker of the Month. Also featured in this regular slot will be the wearable collections of new and exclusive silk screened pieces by Concrete Wardrobes other co-owner Fiona McIntosh under her label "Tessuti".

Going under his weave label "PickOne" this glass collection has been engraved by Dundee based company "White & Sharp Glass Engravers," with each piece having been designed using i-phone apps and taken from original drawings made while on research trips to the Uists and the Shetland Islands before being translated in glass. This process has also been used to translate designs into digitally printed scarves, which are also available exclusively in the UK at Concrete Wardrobe. Each glass comes ready packaged in a handsome presentation box, making it an ideal Christmas gift!

These pieces will be featured in the Concrete Wardrobe window display along side new treble cloth structured hand woven scarves made from linen, lambswool and reflective yarns which shimmer in the fading light. AMAZING!

Both Fiona and James will also be promoting this and other works at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show next week along side 23 other leading Scottish based crafts folk with Edinburgh based Craftscotland.

This is a very exciting departure and one which we are very happy to promote as part of our Maker of the Month series.
