Hello all, before I start on my NY blog, I thought you might like to see my newest product, available in Lane Crawford department store in HK.
The concept for this project was to create a traditional toile pattern with a contemporary Hong Kong twist, that could be used on a whole range of products, starting with ceramics. There's a teapot, teacup & saucer, and Chinese teacups. I think you can buy them all seperately.
All the elements and details in the design are very local to HK, for example a mah jong tile, a good luck goldfish, a 2 dollar coin, and a red lampshade from the markets.
I grew up in HK, and I’m constantly inspired by it. I wanted to create a design that celebrates everything I love about HK!
So, my 'shop' is under construction and soon you'll be able to buy all sorts of lovely Mariko things direct from me. Hurrah! At the moment you can buy my teatins from Whittards, my books from all good booksellers internationally, and my ceramics from Tiffanys in New York.
My very own Mariko Shop will exclusively sell:
Limited edition signed glicee prints
And coming soon to the shop will be:
One special Christmas card per year, pre-orderable in sets of 10, with envelopes
Mariko tape (for all your packaging needs)
Limited edition book art, printed and bound by hand
My HK range of ceramics and textiles...
