While staying at the Casa Mae Hotel in The Algarves, we found the Mishmash stationery Brand.
Mishmash is an office supply brand that was born from the nostalgia of its founder. The inspiration came from her grandfather’s old stationery store, where all of her childhood, she was surrounded by the smell of paper. From an old love story to lost pieces of paper and vintage envelopes, mishmash came along to change the world of stationery by giving design enthusiasts the unique products they have always wanted.
As a consequence of years of research and knowledge of editorial design, mishmash aims to fill a gap in the exploration of concepts related to stationery. With limitless innovation in a stagnant market, Mishmash always try to trigger the creativity in every soulful mind.
The Mishmash collection isn’t about bringing back to live old note books or other.
Mishmash use the same approach to the note books that old companies had 100 years ago but with an eye on today demands and design.
At Supra-Quintessence, we love vintage watches, so when we have learned about Baltic Watches, we were positively surprised.
Baltic Watches in a new vintage inspired watches company.
Baltic Watches is a family of watch connoisseurs with a passion for traditional craftsmanship. They believe the most timeless and desirable watches are often the simplest however, it seems many modern watch brands add unnecessary complexity to their designs.
For this reason we decided to create Baltic Watches. They want to focus on a more authentic approach, bringing together the purest watchmaking techniques to create a vintage-inspired timepiece for your wrist.
The results are neo-vintage, 1940’s-style watches with mechanical movements and well-proportioned cases inspired by the traditional Step Case watch (recognisable by its distinctive ridge or step surrounding the hesalite glass).
A negative point is that most of the Baltic Watches movements are Made in China. We are sure that those movements aren’t bad but if you already assembling all the watches in France, why not buying Swiss movements ?
For sure the watches would have been more expensive, but on the other hand, people agree to pay more for real quality….
When Molehill Goods Owner decided to launch his Brand, the original idea was simple: the product should live with the owner, becoming a record of the passing time and of the experiences.
At Molehill Goods, they believe that items of excellent quality should last for life. And life is a process of constant discovery.
Molehill inspires you to experience life anew. The natural, the wild and the raw become part of the everyday. Adventure becomes synonymous with lifestyle.
With the goal of maintaining the formal simplicity, they started creating them products by choosing the most appropriate, natural materials. They refer to the basic needs and they focus on craftsmanship. They know that the more thought, effort and time is put into the creation of an item, the closer to perfection the results are, and the closer to perfection the final product is. They are constantly discovering better ways, striving for the best.
Them emphasis is on precision, which affects the aesthetics and durability of items. Using the potential of local artisans, they turn to the traditional values of craftsmanship.
