A Friday morning is always well spent catching up with a good friend at the markets. Today, whilst guzzling a fresh coconut, I chatted with one of the souls behind Paper Crab whilst she delicately flat layed their dainty necklace range. Paper Crab combines two individuals love together for handmade goods, uniquely designed and locally produced on a small scale by worldly talented people.

From Thailand to Perth, they share a deep connection and pride for time honoured traditions and skills that are sadly being abandoned only to be replaced by mass produced disconnected rubbish. I lived in Thailand for a few years and can sadly say, I have been apart of the rat race participating in purchasing such goods that too easily fill our lives. However, with the thoughtful inspiring Paper Crab, we can now go back to basics where our goods are honourably crafted.

How they carefully select their items is beyond me, as each individual hand crafted piece tells such a meaningful story. My personal favourites are definiatly the ‘Jungle Daze Pom Pom Clutch’ and of course the ‘Baby Crab’ shoes for children. – Every child should own a pair.

Paper Crab showcase their cross-cultural finds at various market stalls around Perth. This weekend they’re at The Fremantle Markets, head down to see for yourself this unique collection bought to you from across the seas.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the
    head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for
    something concerning this.
