Eco Innovators Showcase!

A few weeks seem to have flown by and to be honest, I didn't even notice. I've been too busy making things and planning stuff and making more things which means I totally forgot to tell you about the Eco Innovators Showcase! We were lucky enough to be asked to put some things in this miniature store on Swanston st-cnr Collins st, Melbourne, selling only local and ethically responsible products, in a disused space! Tell your friends about it, do your christmas shopping there and if you pop down soon enough you can even place orders for MuCKE stock you've been trying to hunt down. There is so much to say about this store, it really is best if you just pop on in yourself.

Open weekdays from 10am, until early 2010 only!

Man it's been hot. Perhaps I can use that as an excuse as to why its taken me 3 weeks to update this... My studio sits on a mezzanine floor just below the warehouse roof, so when its gets hot, I mean maaaaan it gets hot. And its only November... Thankfully I've got a lovely boyfriend who just decided to install a secondhand air conditioner he layed his hands on. I know its not the most eco friendly solution, but hey, it means that MüCKE is able to continue making beautiful garments without keeling over from heat exhaustion. It also means that now I am able to bring you the NEW shirtdress 50/50. Not sure which colour to choose? How about 50/50. Now available at Milly Sleeping, InspirASIA and Pussycat Black.

Stuff for sale

I'm always astounded at how long it takes to list a few items for sale in my new shop... Photo, photo, photophoto phototototo, upload, download, text text label $ shipping, methods, countries, how why what where and when?
So, ANYWAY, new items I've just listed have been laying around the studio for a touch too long and are now on SALE. Shop to your hearts content, or just heart me to your hearts content...

It's taken me a while to figure it all out, but I think I've finally managed to get it under control. It may or may not come as a surprise that MuCKE has had an online shop at Etsy for quite some time... After a great start (aah about 2 years ago...) I accidently let the whole thing slide, but now we are back on the wagon and plan to keep it that way! Shop at home and get MuCKE delivered to your doorstep.

For a little extra incentive, we have decided to provide free postage to anywhere in Australia for the month of October. Get one of the new 'line stamped' t-lace and feel free to email us with your own personal colour requests! All t-laces are made using recycled t-shirts.

9 days to go!

Just nine more days for you to check out our show as part of the festival How you make it, on at Craft Victoria. Here is a small excerpt from the shows artist statement.

"In sharing stories we are able to spread knowledge, expand ideas and inject new meaning into the lives and experiences of people. The Kitchen, a focal point for this show, becomes a place for the makers Hall and Mucke, to come together to do just this. Through the installation and creation of objects, jewellery and fashion, the audience are invited to experience this conversation.

Kitchen Kitchen, physically shows us ways to re-think the objects and things that lie dormant around us everyday. Inspired by these undervalued and discarded items, Hall and Mucke are able to effectively transform them into something new and contemporary."

There will be closing drinks and artist talks at 2pm on Friday the 11th September. You can also meet the artists when they work in the space on both Thursday the 3rd and 10th September. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the show.

Sometimes you need a pompom.

The latest in the t-lace pompom, pictured above.
For those of you unfamiliar with the t-lace, its a necklace, sometimes bracelet sometimes headband sometimes belt, but always a comfortable accessory- made out of recycled T-shirts. Each piece is hand cut, knotted, bound and sometimes screen printed, stamped or stitched. The t-lace pompom actually uses the waste from other styles of resourceful can you get!
Find yours at Craft Victoria or check our website for other stockists near to you.

Part 1 and Part 2

Two parts... so many possible outfits!
Interactive clothing, what a great way to keep more connected to the things we wear every day. The aim of the jumperscarf is to engage the consumer more in the process of dressing. The eventual outcome is that people will wear things for longer and with greater respect for the garment itself.
