Berri clever crochet fingers!

Excuse the word play but Berri Drum is very clever with crochet and we at emma are really excited to now stock her gorgeous crochet collars.
Based in Melbourne, Berri's Hand Hook Yarn is the first non-NZ label we have stocked but thought her work was so lovely we couldn't be without it. Her views on making/ creating and manufacturing really resonate with us and think you'll agree...
'remember(s) a time when things were made with love. When we labored over tasks and enjoyed the results. Possessions were fewer and we treasured them, cared for them, and they became heirlooms.'
We hope you will love her work as much as we do (we're stocking her awesome tassel and suede neckpieces too:)

We're open on Cuba Street!

Yep, it was a hot and steamy night (well actually it was a pretty typical chilly Welly spring evening) shared by loads of lovely folk who well and truly celebrated the opening of our new shop and the release of our summer collection Vacationer.
We had sensational wine sponsored by Te Mata Estate and yummy nibbles from Martha's Pantry.
Thank you to all for welcoming us into 'town' and especially my family and friends for supporting, believing and helping me live my dream.emxx

Charming Cuba Street, emma is beguiled.

We think Cuba Street is the best street in Wellington to discover independant, individual and interesting shops so we are very very excited to be opening a new shop at #268 next week.
There's some gorgeous neighbours suchas The Powder Room, Madame Fancy Pants, Particles of Time and the wonderful Martha's Pantry just around the corner, for when you need a sustaining cuppa, or even better a cupcake, so there's plenty to make the stroll up Cuba Street well worthwhile.
We're so lucky to have found a beautiful vintage space with loads of character (it was once a butchers shop, just like our Berhampore shop) so pop on in, say hi and BRING ON SUMMER!
