Sometimes young people approach me to ask questions such as: 
“I am really concerned about the environment, what can I do to help?”

One of the things I talk about is how easy it is to carry your own bag instead of using plastic bags at shops. 

I like to carry around a couple of these super convenient Envirosax. 

Here is a rolled up bag laid next to my new label maker for size comparison.

Envirosax available from Corky Saint Clair $10AUD each. Lots of cute designs such as this Green Robot Bag.

Shara Porter is an artist and textile designer living in Massachusetts. 

An observation during a long drive prompted the designer’s current collection of handbags, shoes and small leather goods. Shara spotted a sign for a construction company with a picture of a dump truck on it. As she got closer, she also noticed a small unicorn on the corner of the sign. The funny, quirky combination of information and the misplaced creature inspired Porter to create similar juxtapositions with her collection of leather goods.

Porter loved the idea of taking an ultra-feminine purse and putting something unexpected on it, such as a tire or a ladder. The bags have since evolved to include all kinds of imagery, including more feminine and playful designs like birds and trees.

We have received our collection of custom printed Shara Porter wallets and card holders. The wallets and card holders are made from durable, supple leather and are made in the U.S.A. Each wallet is hand printed. 

Bicycle Print wallet. Can you imagine the looks of envy you would recieve if you pulled this sleek beauty out at Bikefest 2010?

Brontosaurus. Dinosaurs are so huge right now. 


Owl wallet. I suspect owls will never go out of fashion in Melbourne - and why would they? They are awesome.
I am totally into these card holders - they are smaller than normal wallets and fit snugly into super tight jeans.

I love coloured leather - it gives you a little buzz having brightly coloured accessories.

Available from Corky Saint Clair. Wallets $65AUD. Card Holders $49AUD. Prints and colours vary. Limited Stock.

This is the mini version of the semi-famous Bird in the Berry Tree. We did a silver plated version last year but this incarnation is nicer - the brushed finish is more resistant to finger prints.

We got some fine sterling silver curb chains custom made to fit the piece which make the mini Bird in the Berry Tree seem more delicate.

Mini Bird in the Berry Tree RRP $69
available from Corky Saint Clair , Kids in Berlin

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes is a non-fiction children's book written by American author Eleanor Coerr and published in 1977.

The story is of a girl, Sadako Sasaki, who lived in Hiroshima at the time of the atomic bombing by the United States. She developed leukemia from the radiation and spent her time in a nursing home folding paper cranes in hope of making a thousand, which supposedly would have allowed her to make one wish, which was to live.

However, she managed to fold 644 before she became too weak to fold any more, and died shortly after. Her friends and family helped finish her dream by folding the rest of the cranes which were buried with Sadako.

The paper crane motif has since become associated with the peace movement.

Available from Corky Saint Clair - 
Sterling silver crane pendant on a 50cm sterling silver chain $60AUD; 
on an 80cm sterling silver chain $65AUD 


Black perspex moth earrings by Christopher Bril for Corky. $45AUD available from Corky Saint Clair and Supermarket
