We've had many customers compliment us on our window display so far this month, but we can't take any credit. That all goes to Sam & Maya; the two lovely folk behind the label Hideyo. They have put on a gorgeous display of modular origami pieces strung from branches, in amongst old books and glass cloches. A few customers even told us they "just had to cross the road to check it out".
Hideyo are well known in Tasmania and on the mainland for their beautiful origami pieces made from the pages of old, discarded books, and their other elegant but environmentally-minded products. These two are regularly found at some of the best design & handmade markets around the country, including Finders Keepers, Bowerbird Bazaar, The Market in Hobart, Markit, and Melbourne Design Market.

They have just released a bunch of new designs in their range of origami flowers, which we have in stock along with various modular origami balls. And Milkbar is also the only place you can currently purchase packs of Hideyo Origami Paper!
Sam will be running an origami workshop this Saturday, 14th July, from 2 -4pm at Milkbar. Come along to learn origami basics while you fold a number of origami pieces to take home. This workshop is aimed at all ages and skill levels so would be a perfect family activity. Check our Events page for more into. Bookings essential.
One of Sam's many passions (when not folding!) is photography in the natural environment and we are certainly happy to have his photographs on the Milkbar walls this month. Thanks Sam!
