Driftwood Goes to New Zealand

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted.... Lots going on, so much so my head is spinning... we're getting ready for a move so my shop is closed for the next couple of months but I did want to post a few snaps of my latest Driftwood I was able to stitch up before putting the lid on the sewing supply box ~ she will fly away today & is headed to a gorgeous place named Nydia Bay in Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand... What an adventure she is going to have!  Hope you have a beautiful life little Driftwood in your stunning new abodes with your sweet partner, Norma.  Bon voyage!

ps.  here's a link to On The Track Lodge in Nydia Bay for those wanderlusting...  if I find myself in New Zealand one of these days, I will be sure to stay here...

seaward bound.... with the Sunn Hat

Lemon yellow sun, salty sea spray, fluffy marshmallow clouds, baggy trunks, sandy toes, perfect glassy off-shore conditions.... These hats are for these moments & more...  Made by hand with love as always ~ heavy cotton sailcloth & vintage retro fabrics reminiscent of the happy beach days.... these beauties are named in loving memory of one of my all time favorite surfers/waterwoman, Rell Sunn... I think she would have dug these hats... Hats off to you Queen of Makaha ~ may your beautiful spirit live on forever....

Abbot Kinney Festival

We had a great time at the AK Festival yesterday!  What a fantastic turn-out of the friendliest people around!  Thank you for so much for coming out and celebrating the unveiling of our goods.  Beautiful day, beautiful faces, what more can anyone ask for?

For those of you who took our business cards, we had hoped to have a web store operating by now but there has been a slight delay so we will be mainly working with our blog to accommodate our customers for the time being.  If you are interested in purchasing any of our goods, please email me by either pressing the link to the right or to g@rizomdesigns.com.

We leave you with some images of our creations & booth ~ I will post more pics of our goods in the coming week so please check back soon...

The beginning.....

Our first blog! We're so close to unveiling our creations @ rīzōm designs and very excited... just getting the last of the goodies made & soon we'll be unveiling our creations at the Abbot Kinney Festival in Venice Beach, CA on September 26th! Everything we create is made consciously with the planet we so much love and respect in mind, each piece unique and one of a kind, utilizing precious vintage, recycled materials. Please check back in a few for pictures of our labor of love but in the meantime, we leave you with some photos of our recent journey to beautiful and awe-inspiring Big Sur where a piece of our heart is forever clinging to the weather-beaten cliffs...
