Let's just pause for a minute and admire the upcycled near-genius of Melbourne furniture dude Sean McMahon.

something else winter collection

3:00pm Wednesday, 06 Mar.

Aussie label Something Else brings us another snuggly winter collection, and we're pretty sold on it.

leonard street autumn/winter lookbook

3:00pm Wednesday, 13 Mar.

This autumn/winter lookbook from Leonard St. makes us want to tug on an oversized knit, a big pair of snow-kicking boots and ignore the fact it's actually egg-frying temperature outside.

hobes new summer shoes

9:00am Sunday, 16 Dec.

Not only is everything lovingly handmade here in Australia, but these new colour-popping Boat Hobes only weigh 300 grams, meaning that you can just chuck them in your backpack for any outing.

another vision cushions

9:00am Monday, 14 Jan.

All of Another Vision's cushions are designed and made in Melbourne, meaning the fabric miles to get from their warehouse to your couch is minimal.

bindle designer gift packages

3:00pm Wednesday, 12 Dec.

Bindles are a little like a fancier version of those cellophane-wrapped hampers you might win as a bingo prizes, except with gourmet jam and hand-painted teacups instead of dishwashing detergent and cat food.

the hiding tree fashion lookbook

9:00am Monday, 26 Nov.

This local label may be called The Hiding Tree but their designs aren't exactly wallflower material.

aacute polymer jewellery

3:00pm Tuesday, 13 Nov.

In a handmade world where colourful round polymer beads are being draped around everyone's necks, Aacute are making headway. After all, it's hip to be square (and/or dodecahedron, but that's too many syllables).

rollas australian denim

9:00am Saturday, 17 Nov.

We always get a little excited when we hear about new denim craftsmen and women: promoting simplicity, wearability and classic cuts, Rollas hails from the land down under and their approach to denim has us smiling.

12:00pm Thursday, 01 Dec.

Here's a great initiative for those of you who are wanting to shop with a social conscience this silly season. Occupy Christmas is encouraging people to buy local pressies from independent this year.
