New Designers in the Shop! August 09 2017
Here at Red Sail, we're always on the hunt for new designers, and this month our hard work has paid off. Five new designers have recently made their debut in our shop and we couldn't be more excited about it. Read on below to learn a little about each new designer and the amazing pieces they create.
Totem’s ceramic stoneware pieces are inspired by natural forms, simplicity, and traditional craft. As each item is handmade in their Berkeley studio, no two pieces are alike. The dishes and mugs they crafted for us feature a velvet crackle finish, lending depth to the surface of simplistic shapes. Pick up a wide mug with a tea jar and stirring spoon, and give the set to your tea-loving friend along with their favorite tea for instant gift success. See all their beautifully crafted pieces here.
Natalie Joy Miller used her experience with small-scale sculpture and hand-made jewelry to create Natalie Joy Jewelry in 2010. Every piece from her architectural line is made by hand in her Portland studio, using both traditional and unique metal-working techniques. We especially love her ladder-like Aventine bracelet and her minimalist square hoop earrings. These striking pieces play equally nicely with jeans and a tee or a little black dress.

Fionna Hanna is a Toronto based textile designer and maker. The materials for her linen and hemp scarves are sourced from small businesses in Canada and the US. She stamps block-prints of grid patterns of major cities on each scarf, creating an abstract, graphic design ideal for unisex styling. Layer your look with her New York, Toronto, or Paris infinity scarves.
Woolly leather combines modern minimalism and old school craft to create beautiful wallets and leather accessories. Sourcing only US vegetable-tanned leather, each item they design is laser cut prior to hand stitching in their Portland studio, creating a perfectly finished, ruler-straight edge on every well-made wallet. We are particularly delighted with their ingenious stick-on phone wallet. 3M adhesive on the back means you can stick and re-stick it to your phone without leaving any residue behind. They also offer a fresh take on the classic money clip by placing it on a lightweight minimalist wallet. Check out all of their offerings right here.
Ayu Carlton started making sophisticated goods for a modern organic lifestyle in LA in 2016. Vegan and organic, her gorgeously scented candles use a special coconut/soy wax blend and feature wooden wicks for an extra touch of goodness. Can't decide between Bohemian Forest, Cherry Blossom, Japanese Yuzu, or White Tea? Get a travel tin in each scent. (She also offers a large glossy jar candle.)
If you're in town, we'd love it if you stopped by to see these pieces in person. For our out of town friends, we've gathered these beauties along with many more new pieces for your shopping pleasure in the new arrivals section of our website. Happy shopping!
