break time

Usually you can expect about 3 blogs a week from me. But I'm so busy right now that it's just not possible. I'm also going on my holiday next Saturday, so I decided to give blogging a little break. I'll be back in 4 weeks with lots of news, inspiration and DIY's.

At the moment I'm finishing my last orders. All orders from Wednesday 1 Juli will be made and shipped from Monday 20 Juli, when I'm back home again.

In order to compensate you a bit for the wait and because it's summer and the weather is finally great, I'll give you a 10% discount on all orders between 1 Juli and 19 Juli. Just use this couponcode: SUMMER2015 in my Etsyshop. This includes the sale!!
Even though I'm on my holiday, you can still reach me by email with questions and custom requests.
Have a great holiday and let's hope the weather stays bright and sunny. (Last year we had 3 weeks of rain)
Please follow me on facebook and instagram to stay updated on everything et aussi …

moving blanket pillows by et aussi

Even though I'm having a big sale right now, my pillows and blankets can still be made to order in any desired combination.  Today I'll explain my pillow and blanket collections some more.

For my collections I use moving blanket as the fabric and soft cotton for the crochet.
There are 2 types of moving blanket:
The tough is a thick grey woven fabric, made from new textile fibres. These are cutting remnants from the clothing industry. Therefore the blankets contain a mixture of wool, cotton, polyester and acrylic. It has a bump here and there, but they are very soft and warm.
The multi is a stitched blanket with more colour, because it is made from 100% recycled textile fibres, which come from old clothing. It is not as thick as the tough, but the blankets are still very warm.

My cotton comes in 17 colours:

I have 3 pillow/blanket collections:
Basic This collection consists of blankets and pillows in 2 sizes made from the two types of moving blanket embellished with a small cro…

Mika Barr: geometric pillows and throws

Recently I discovered the shop of Mika Barr on Etsy. She makes the most beautiful pillows and throws with geometric prints that fold on the edges of the print. Therefore creating a 3D fabric. Besides the Geo collections, she also has a collection called Vein. With Vein, instead of printing a grid, she uses the veins from leaves as starting point for the print, which make the fabric break very naturally.

Visit her shop for more throws and pillows: Mika Barr.

et aussi is having a stocksale !!

Last week I told you I'll be showing at tradeshow ShowUP with a new collection blankets and pillows. To make some room in my studio I'm having a stocksale in my Etsyshop. This summer my entire stock of moving blanket pillows and blankets will be 50% off.
For the Basic and the Hook collections goes: the finished products will be in the sale, the specific cominations mentioned in the listing. All other blanket/colour combinations that have to be made to order are not in the sale. The Unique collection will be completely in the sale, because their all one of a kinds.

one pick Friday: more cacti

Czech artist Veronika Richterova makes the most extraordinary objects from plastic bottles. These cacti are by far my favourite.
Have a great weekend !!


Personally I love green in my house. Preferably in the shape of plants. Cacti and succulents are my favourite, not in the least because they tend to survive me (or a lack of care by me) the best. But lately I have purchased a fig leaf and a small string of pearls and they're doing alright so far.

Instead of sticking to living greens, you can also make a statement by using wallpaper with a leaf theme. On my wish list is this wallpaper by ELLE for Graham & Brown. 

I have a wall that goes from my living room into my kitchen. It would look great in both my living room and my kitchen. For now I hung a sample, so I can get used to it, because it is big and bold. Maybe for after the summer to keep the summer feeling going. I'll keep you posted.
On Pinterest I have lot's of green and greens inspiration. Check out these boards:

painted cacti by Kwangho Lee

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about the pendant lamps of Kwangho Lee. He is also a very gifted painter. He did a series of huge lifelike cacti called 'Touch'. It's all oil on canvas and the details are so intricate. I'm absolutely in love.

great news!

I have some great news: et aussi is going wholesale!
On 23 and 24 August I'll be showing at ShowUP, a trade show for Home & Gift.

Besides my existing collections, the Lampes, Knobs, moving blanket pillows and throws, I'll also be showing my autumn/winter collection. This new collection consists of luxurious wool blankets and pillows. I'm still working very hard on getting everything finished in time. In the meantime, if you follow me on Instagram you'll get a glimps of what's going on behind the scenes.
There is only one downside to my happy news. Because there is going to a real shop between me and you, I do have to raise the prices, or else I would be working for free. The price raise won't start until 1 September, so if you have an eye on a lamp, some knobs, a blanket or pillow, I would suggest you make your decision this summer.

So if everything goes well you will be able to see, feel and buy my products in selected shops from 1 September.
