A former buyer and designer, Craig Anczelowitz always dreamt of making toys. After more than ten years spent in New York working for prestigious companies (Kate’s Paperie, ABC Carpet & Home, Outfitters), Craig decided to settle down in Thailand. He had traveled throughout Asia many times for work and had always enjoyed his time developing home decor there most. Not very long after, he gave birth to Nook-nook, a collection of funny creatures. Handmade with much love, the nook-nooks are produced with respect and care in a family-run workshop in chiang mai, Thailand. “The nook nook collection has been created deep within the thickets of the “hideaway forest” to brighten your day and put a big smile on your face! nook nook features such hand stitched goodies as the cute-as-buttons “critter” dolls, sensationally splendid stationery, petite and precious purses as well as oodles and oodles of adorable accessories”.

Short listed for the Elle Decoration Best of British Design award 2010, the Alphabet cushions by Elsie Dodds are a must!

For children and adults to share and enjoy, to encourage curious natures and stimulate imaginations.

Tom & Drew is one of the first children’s wear companies to introduce Japanese Kurabo denim to the market. T&D’s denim is of the highest possible quality and has been imported from Osaka, Japan. The Kurabo denim paired with appliqué pima cotton t-shirts, “slubby” jersey reversible hoodies and light weight “space dyed” knit shorts make for perfect summer outfits. Tom&Drew is also one of the few companies that focuses on boys and boys only, and I have to say that those short pants looks pretty good, even under the rain… www.tomanddrewboys.com
