We are big fans of utilitarian art, and these hanging hand-knotted lamps by Kelly Valletta are pretty amazing.

We love making hand made cards around the Kind Aesthetic studio, so we especially love the work of Eleanor Anderson, whose hands you see above. You can buy her work in the TAC shop, as well. What an elegant way to catch up with some old friends.

Artist made clothes are simply the best. Lucia Cuba's work is really intriguing to us and we like hearing a bit about her process on their blog.  Her activist design initiative, Proyecto Gamarra is really something to dig into.
