This is one of those sites that makes me rue the fact that I don't live in Europe! Belgium-based Envelop takes artist- and member-created graphics and patterns and applies them to all sorts of sundry articles: aprons, place mats, tote bags, basically anything that is a textile. Normally, you'd get a bunch of "I'M WITH STUPID" logos plastered on coffee mugs, but not with Envelop -- they vet their patterns, so everything has a certain level of visual quality. I have to say, the results are pretty stunning, especially if you have a strange fixation with really cool aprons like me. The site's fairly new so the selection may not be super-extensive (yet), and I'm waiting anxiously for someone to design a really cool duvet. But the site's relative youth (they're still in beta) just means there's more room for all you artist, illustrator and graphic designer types out there to become a member and submit your work. I'm only sad that I have only dollars and not euros, but they do ship worldwide. Still, if only I could live in Europe...
First row, l-r:
(1) This "Lost in the Jungle" pillow is kind of in line with my whole "Spiritual Scandinavia" concept: colorful, bright, cheerful to snuggle up with on a cold winter morning.
(2) Can you ever not have enough cool tote bags like this "I Wish I Was Audrey Hepburn" one? I think not.
Second row, l-r:
(1) I wasn't lying about super-cool aprons! I would totally spend more time in the kitchen if it meant I could wear an apron like this "Rooftops" one.
(2) All my oven mitts are usually printed with "folksy" type of patterns, but if I had one with this Arctic Adventure pattern, well, I'd finally learn how to bake just so I could use this.
Third row, l-r:
