New in the shop this week...

This week we are so very excited to have a few new artists and a few new products from existing artists at Bespoke. We just got in the beautiful and oh so carefully curated and created Collective Quarterly. With their first issue they focused on Marfa Texas and the book is full of inspiring and beautiful imagery and photos.

 "THIS IS A MAGAZINE  ABOUT CREATING.  It follows select artists and artisans on a trip to the unseen hideaways that inspire them to craft uncommon goods. The camera lens brings into focus an often blurry creative process as they work alongside each other to discover truth, surprise and an aesthetic that delights. In these pages, you’ll find a carefully edited selection of dry goods, art, music, food,  drink, and stories, all   deeply rooted in the heritage and land around us.     This journey hi nges on a communion of likeminded creators. We a re illustrators, photographers, and writers.
 We are shirt-makers, boot-crafters, and denim-cutters. We are bartenders, chefs, and musicians."

 THIS WORK IS ABOUT WHIMSY AND SUBTLE STRENGTH.   Handmade in New York out of porcelain. The walls are so thin you can see light through them, yet so very strong.   Each and every one of these beautiful works of art tells a story. Drinking anything out of a mug this beautiful enhances your experience exponentially.
