Burnished Indigo…

indigo is my favorite color…when I was younger, I was a ‘blue jean baby’…but I have now become partial to wearing black.  Anyway…JamesPlumb has developed a dye process, producing an antique burnished indigo textile, which gives a stunning depth and dimension to indigo…

The project began when James Russell and Hannah Plumb of JamesPlumb found a 19th century leather sofa in a state of disrepair and wanted to find a suitable fabric to reupholster it.

Omoshiroi-ne…

…omoshiroi-ne means ‘how clever’ in japanese…Leo Tatemichi, architect and owner of Pompon Cakes, is indeed clever.  Using his mother’s recipes, Tatemichi opened his bakeries two years ago.  He was inspired by his travels through the U.S. by street vendors.  ”It looked like so much fun, so I wanted to bring that warm and inviting spirit along to Kamakura.
