1. Hubert Book Binding: To celebrate Cork Craft Month, here’s an interesting website from one of its members.
Based at Tobin Street in Cork, Barbara Hubert and her team do all of their binding work by hand, and boast that they give acute attention to detail and a durable finish which, they say, ensures the products have a distinctive look and last well into the next century. They also collaborate with artists to design bespoke portfolios, presentation books and boxes.
2. Social Nesting: Stay home and settle with social nesting, a very darling site with lovely stuff to hook the casual surfer from recipes for Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip ice cream to how to make a handmade mobile for a baby. Social Nesting is a forum for personal creative journeys, all the noteworthy things that the creator finds along his way, lots of original, relatively easy ideas and inspirations.
3. Interiors Directory: This site brings together a range of resources from interiors-related companies and is the online equivalent of gathering glossy mags and a phone book to find what you’re looking for. They recommend searching featured companies for your project first and view their company profiles to make informed decisions. From textiles to tiles, the site is comprehensive and worth book marking.
