WOODEN NAUTICAL FLAGS



From A to Z, these bright, bold and graphic wooden flags are based on the International Code of Signals. Each flag represents a letter in the alphabet: hang just one or the entire set, spell out a coded message, or conjure up the evocative regimen of naval life.

Designed by our friends from Best Made, each flag is hand-painted in the same method as their axes, in their New York City workshop.



Take a look on the Best Made Website here.

NOBLE HANDCRAFTED TONICS



With their innovative flavors and their cork stoppers, waxy seals, bold lettering, stylish packaging coming straight out of a 19th-century apothecary, the Noble Handcrafted Tonics line of maple syrups and vinegars are just the kind of thing to catch our attention.

These 'tonics' are from Mikuni Wild Harvest, a company which developed the Noble line as a way to work with small-batch food craftsman who are as dedicated to unique, hand crafted high-quality products .


A beautiful packaging combined with unique delicious contents … What a temptation !
