Five Comma is the brand created by Hyejin Jeong who hails from South Korea. We are very pleased to bring to the store her collection titled City Project Berlin. Gorgeous canvas bags + divine hand woven pure wool handles, the collection was inspired when she spent some time in the vibrant city of Berlin.
In Jeong's own words 'Poster on the wall, graffiti on someone, signs on the construction site . These tiny elements are naturally blended in every corner of the street. There are cities that make wit. For me Berlin was such a city. I collected the sculptures of the street that I encountered while travelling in Berlin and made it into one long pattern. (Like graffiti and signs surrounding the building) I hope that these patterns will become small pieces and stay somewhere in the city'.
We fell in love with these beauts as soon as we laid eyes on them, hand crafted + covetable eco bags that are completley unique and beautifully executed. Find them in SOURCED.
The latest creator to join Cup + Cloth is Scottish artist Emma McDowall. Studio Emma was created after a year of discovering her love of concrete whilst experimenting with recipes and moulds within her mother’s humble garden shed, Emma now creates a collection of contemporary concrete products. From vessels to art objects and homeware, each piece is carefully cast by hand in her Edinburgh studio. Every product is completely unique in its colour, texture and design, with many pieces still moulded using found or recycled materials. Emma focuses on the interplay between colour and material, celebrating the naturally occurring surface pattern and textural imperfections. We love Emma's work, the deep saturated pigment tones of her vessels are as pure as colour gets. Find her collection in the MADE section in the store.
