We All Share Roots featured in British Airways High Life magazine

We were so excited to learn that We All Share Roots was featured in the British Airways High Life magazine in July. That's British Airways' in-flight magazine, which is amazing! I think that makes them kind of a big deal.

This is a business that deserves any coverage that they get. We All Share Roots is a brand with a conscience. They put great importance in keeping everything 100% locally, ethically and sustainably-produced, work with a variety of charities, and, close to Hello Pretty's heart, employ women from local communities.

Plus, their stuff is really freakin cool. I have been going through their store and their Instagram account to select some things to show you and I'm having a pretty tough time of it because their pictures are so pretty, and their bags are all gorgeous.

Go visit their store to see all of their work, and if you like something we recommend acting fast because each design is made in a very limited range of 15 to 25 units.

Flamingos on Hello Pretty

We just lurve the current flamingo trend - yes, we're those people who would totally buy those plastic lawn flamingos. Why? Because they're awesome of course.

So what better way to express our love than by showing you all where to get the best flamingo themed products on the site?

We know, we're pretty great like that.

Prints of Wes Anderson by Laura Weiszer

Yes…  a million times yes!  I have a special place in my lounge earmarked for these Wes Anderson prints by Laura Weiszer.

What makes them that much more impressive is that they are painted in acrylics - guys, painting in acrylic is HARD.  It’s like a constant war on time.  The race to do what you need to do before it dries actually makes me anxious.

No space for prints, or your mom isn’t interested in your ambition to redecorate the house with your obvious good taste?  That’s fine, you can cover yourself, your bags, lampshades and dogs collar with her Wes Anderson buttons.

This illustrator, designer and student is based in Philadelphia, and her prints are available from her etsy store.

Open Studios Sessions at Artist Proof Studio

Oddly enough, we’ve had a fair few designers ask whether we knew of a good place in Johannesburg to do professional printing. We didn’t, but we’ve asked around and chatted with a few of the right kinds of people and feel that we can now quite confidently recommend that you talk to Artist Proof Studio, who are based in Newtown.

From the Artist Proof Studio bio on Facebook:

Artist Proof Studio is a quality Art Education Centre that specialises in printmaking through a variety of diverse partnerships with creative young artists, established professional artists, community groups, patrons and funders.
Every Friday from 9am to 4pm they have their Open Studio sessions. It costs R120.00 per session and that includes inks, solvents, studio space and the assistance of one of their printers. You must have basic print knowledge and have used the press before. There will be a maximum of 6 people per session.

You’ll need to buy your own plates and paper, which you can buy from Artist Proof Studio themselves (let them know by the Tuesday before you attend what you’ll need for your Friday session).

Here are the contact details for Artist Proof Studio:
