Shop to Watch: Make Me Iconic

Make Me Iconic sells artwork, ceramics, tea-towels, cushions and children’s toys. But what makes this online store different is that all their products have iconic printed images of landmarks or are designed around iconic areas/items/businesses of Australian cities such as Melbourne and Sydney. Designed by young and vibrant designers, these products are a great way to incorporate Australian souvenirs into your home.

Here are a few of the items i’m eyeballing at the moment, but please head over to their online store to find out more about the business and the products they sell.

I have picked out some of my favourites below, but they have a whole range of designer goodies for everyone’s tastes so make sure you have a look over on the online store for more.

Shop to Watch – The Print Society

If there is one thing I love more than skulls (view previous posts here, here and here) it would have to be neon printed cushions and The Print Society just happen to hit the nail on the head.

Their cushions, purses and bags are made from natural fabrics such as hemp/linen and are hand printed in Sydney Australia. They also use non-toxic water based inks and dyes, and are produced using sustainable practices.

You will find below some of my picks from their online store:
