Dandi: New!

Dandi is a brand new homewares company based in Sydney made up of four ladies who met in college while studying industrial design. They decided to combine their talents and form a business and Dandi was born. I heard from one of these ladies, Melinda, who sent me these photos to premiere here on decor8 today. They specialize in the design and creation of innovative screen printed fabric and etched bamboo products for the home. Dandi infuses their collection with bright colors, fresh patterns and a bit of the 1950’s housewife femininity combined with nature motifs.

    Wow. These ladies are producing and selling a DIY kit mobile that looks so much like my mobiles (especially the mobiles I started my brand with… the recylced magazine mobiles that you have featured on your blog Holly) I was kind of floored when I saw it on their site.
