Through his design practice, @heferporky works to preserve local artisanal skills and vernacular craftsmanship. He collaborates extensively with artisans and empowers craft groups and small manufacturers to reconnect with their creativity. The ’Spun’ chair, like all of his work made from Kooboo cane, is made by talented weavers at the Cape Society for the Blind, an NGO in Cape Town. See it on our booth at @designmiami until this Sunday #designmiami #southernguild #porkyhefer #cane #kooboocane.

With the festive season round the corner, its the time for annual cleanup and sprucing up, mr. Chauhan who owns this Tea Stall on satellite road swears by the quality of handpainted type over vinyl prints. He say the vinyl prints tend to fade over a couple of months... His Tea Stall is named Shri Ashapura Tea Stall, after another local deity (there are thousands of golds and goddesses in India- More on that later).
This one is beautifully hand painted by painter Arif for a meagre amount of ₹700 and it took him about half a day to complete it. Perhaps the warm weather and the outdoors helped dry the paint faster. 
Look at the details and techniques used to achieve the gradients

One of our bags getting a touch up at Baxter train station on the way home from a Milkwood workshop - thanks @beyourselfsmiles :) We make every effort we can with our minimal merch - these fairtrade bags are hand printed with vegetable inks by Josh at @107projects in Sydney - keeping supply and skills local and awesome! And also with additional flowers if possible, as above 🌻.

We work with Fairtrade organisations around the world, to bring you some of our most beautiful handmade, artisan products.

FIVE MILE RADIUS was the original name for dirtlab and today, we're bringing it back. Inspired by the Ghandin philosophy that people should try to build using materials sourced within 5 miles of the site, Five Mile Radius is to grow to become an architectural collective that experiments with this idea. Like Gandhi, we believe in the social, economic and environmental benefits of building with what you've already got..... 💪

There’s a basil forest growing in the garden! The rich volcanic soil combined with the sweet skills of my friend Theo who looks after the plants, equals an incredibly impressive garden, no matter the conditions.
.
Beyond the basil jungle lies a huge rosemary bush and after that is a lemon tree that I planted from seed about six years ago that is now producing something a lot more like limes. Curious.
.
Now that my map project is finished I’ve started doing more research again about permaculture, natural building, and all of that fun stuff. Theo has everything under control here and I’m looking forward to getting back to Portugal soonish to get my hands dirty again!
