There are some amazing women and mothers out there creating cool original products and instead of the usual Mother’s Day gift guide,  I wanted to highlight one brand from my adopted home Australia to check out for Mother’s Day (which is basically everyday :) gifts for yourself, your Mama, Grandmother, sister, wife or  loved individual.

If your kids or nieces/nephews, grandkids are anything like mine they are prolific artists … it comes home in droves and there is not a wall in my home that does not have some incredible artwork on it.. but I am always trying to find new ways to get rid of it  display it.

Then the fact I love fabric .. but cannae sew for toffee.. so I have all this incredible fabric I find and buy for a project and apart from a few cushions, table runner and pretty hokey and definitely Project Runway fail attempt at making trousers for my toddler out of a cute vintage couple of Parisian tea towels I end up doing my old favourite … stretch it across a wee canvas for instant presents.

But now …. no longer – I give you …

 

CHAMELEON INK BAGS 

Why I love them:

Started by two friends – Liz & Carrie in December 2016, Chameleon Ink. is a Brisbane based accessory business born out of a desire to showcase the kids art piles (albeit beautiful and original) artworks of those little creators in our lives. Once the concept started taking shape – they thought what if you could use vintage curtain fabric, old jeans, wrapping paper and anything you can paint or cut to customise the bag. 

One bag – ever changing.

Chameleon Ink. bag, complete with template, allows you to create your own interchangeable design.

Bring on the artwork pile – clothes that don’t fit that I love the fabric of and so much much more.

Here I am with the $100 envelope clutch one of their limited edition ranges with red insert and additional snake embellishment.

Styled with: @HM Love your Vibe T-shirt & Mom Jeans, Vintage Turban and brooch, Manning Cartell Bow mules, French Connection reversible polka dot bomber, DIY hoop pearls and ribbon choker.
