Introducing Marta Walenda

October 24, 2014

Last week Marta Walenda walked into our shop carrying a bag full of amazing rescued objects that she has transformed into hand painted wearable art and home decor, under her stylish self named label. My favourites are the long timber necklaces, hand painted leather disk rings and the hand painted key racks. But all of it is gorgeous and we now stock a range of pieces in our Recycled Gallery shop. The branding and overall aesthetic is tribal, beachy and a little bit folky. The week before one of our loyal locals gave me a set of 9 silky oak drawers that had been removed from an old built in wardrobe. I used 3 of these to make 2 adorable shadow boxes with splashes of gold paint and rope for the display. I love it :)
