A few weeks ago Ripple Craft asked for help in naming our new stackable stools. After reading through the many entries we had to go for the ‘Dookie Stack’. Thanks Ineka Bekarma for this locally inspired suggestion. We felt, in order to announce this winning entry property, then a couple of photos of the stool overlooking the funky town it has been named after had to happen. Well, there they are. Thanks to everyone who made suggestions RC, HQ
Ripple Craft HQ has been a hive of activity of late. We were busy getting organised for the last two markets at Violet Town and the Rose Street Market in Melbourne. It was a busy weekend but it was great to talk to some amazing local people as well those from interstate about our products. So many people were amazed that Colm makes everything by hand, bending, shaping and welding the stools. The only thing he doesn’t do is the powder coating, these are sent off to be done locally (because he is fussy and wants to ensure the products meet his level of quality).
The Ripple Craft office and workshop have been in overdrive providing quotes and making some lovely handcrafted stools for some new clients. You will see in the picture that the stools have been made from re-bar and the timber top is made from recycled and reclaimed Murray Pine floor boards. It’s great to see some amazing local timber bought back to life with love and care.
In other news, Colm has just received another order for two new bespoke designed stools which should challenge all of his creative talents. We will keep you updated on the progress of these shortly!
So you can have your sleep in tomorrow, because the #Rosestreetmarket doesn’t start until 11am. Come down to see us at 60 Rose Street, Fitzroy until 5pm Sunday.
We also wanted to say a big thank you to everyone for coming down to see us at the #VioletTownmarket today. Spring was definitely in the air, the sun was shining and it was great to meet and talk to so many friendly people.
Colm has just finished these great new stools. However, we need your help naming our new stool. What do you think we should name it?
We can’t just keep calling it the stackable stool because it sounds a little too boring. Just list your suggestions as a comment by the Monday 14th September.
We are busy gearing up for the Rose Street Market in Fitzroy this Sunday. Colm has been finishing off a few stools in readiness for our first weekend at the famous Melbourne market.
