Ostrich Pillow Light

Ostrich Pillow LightOstrich Pillow Light

I just had the pleasure to meet one of the co-founders of Switzerland based Studio Banana. Key Portilla-Kawamura is one of the forces behind the wonderful Ostrich Pillow and now it’s smaller brother the Ostrich Pillow Light, pictured above. These pillows are made in a small town in Spain and revived a dying factory. What is not to love?

Key also gave a CreativeMornings talk in Geneva a year ago. Yay for smart creative people making cool stuff. And yay for the internet connecting us all.

I just discovered this beauty of a simple front loading toolbox over on Best Made Co. With the front loading door you can access all your tools without having to grapple with the top tray. The powder coated toolbox is hand-made, and hand-spot welded using 50+ year methods and machinery in the USA. Bravo.

Sugru Magnet Kit

Sugru introduced their first ever sugru kit: It comes in a small tin. Inside you’ll find three packs of sugru (2 for your magnet projects and 1 spare). Below them, nestled in some cleverly cut cardboard, are four fantastic bespoke neodymium magnets. Also included is a great little booklet full of tips and tricks! Those Sugru folks, brilliant, as always! Check out their magnet-kit page for ideas on how to use it.

Napsack

Napsack

I just got back from a two-day Tattly country-side retreat where Natalie wore one of these Poler Napsacks pretty much 24/7. Here’s proof. It’s an ingenious invention if you ask me; a wearable sleeping bag. It has zippers at the shoulders, so you can stick your arms out, and a cinch at the bottom so that you can open it up and stick your legs out. Hike it up to your waist, cinch it, and wear it like a puffy coat around the campfire, and then crawl right back into your tent without ever having to leave the warmth of your bag.

Brilliant, right? Napsacks for everyone!
