I Like Ethnic Quilts

Let’s be real, these quilts are absofuckinglutely gorgeous.

Available from Niki Jones

 Our kantha quilts are made from vintage sari’s pieced together and then stitched all over with running stitch. Each quilt is unique and has different colours and patterns on either side.

As these are vintage items they may have patches and slight imperfections; we think this is part of their charm.

Rare Music Typerwriter!

This is the coolest frickin’ gadget ever, and it’s so rare, less than a dozen are believed to still exist. If you’ve got $6K to shell out, get yours here.

Short history from musicprintinghistory.org:

The Keaton Music Typewriter was first patented in 1936 (14 keys) by Robert H. Keaton from San Francisco, California. Another patent was taken out in 1953 (33 keys) which included improvements to the machine. The machine types on a sheet of paper lying flat under the typing mechanism. There are several Keaton music typewriters thought to be in existence in museums and private collections. It was marketed in the 1950s and sold for around $225. The typewriter made it easier for publishers, educators, and other musicians to produce music copies in quantity. Composers, however, preferred to write the music out by hand.
