Mainichi Design : A Tale of Wood and Fish | Craft Victoria till 2nd May

Mainichi recycles leather, felt, wood, fabric, bamboo, rubber, plastic and many more everyday and interesting materials into wearable pieces of art. Mainichi is handmade in Melbourne, Australia.

“My forefathers were skilled labourers, crafting items for consumption with their hands, aware of the value of materials, mindful of their origins and end use. Frugal, ingenious and appreciative of what little they might have had; to re-appropriate, recycle and reuse was an everyday practice for them. This body of work celebrates their skills and their appreciation of the value of materials; and it asks – in our modern world how often do we consider the labour that is embodied in the products we consume, and wonder at the origin and end-use of the materials that surround us?”
