From November 10-15th, webshop nuno dodo will visit manos with a great selection of sustainable childrens clothing from esencia, aarekid and Chaleca. It was through Caroline who run nuno dodo that I first was introduced to the childrens clothes from esencia. I wanted them all – but in my size!! Now I sell the women’s collection here at manos (also in the webshop) and it’s just as fantastic as the kids collection. Welcome to try them both this week!
The lovely basement room at manos is now renovated with the walls and vaulted ceiling whitewashed and a whole new smooth wooden floor. I cannot stop beaming!
The room is already being put to use – a painting course on Wednesday evenings and this coming Thursday will see a trial Tai Chi lesson taking place in this calm and harmonious space. Do you want to try? Read more and sign up for one or all three of the lessons here.
After a great private view evening, the pop-up craft shop is now open both Saturday and Sunday 11-5 pm and I tell you that you’ll be missing a great thing if you don’t come to visit! Creative, up-and-coming, independent designers showing inspiring crafts. Support them! Thank you Sara Söderberg for doing a brilliant job with pulling the pop-up craft shop together, I look forward to many more collaborations!
Every week is really quite exiting here at manos but this week even more so. I’m happy to invite twelve students from Konstfack, working in the fields of ceramics, glass, silver, wood and textile, to Pop-up Craft Shop, an event starting with a private view on Friday and continuing throughout the weekend.
The idea and organisation behind Pop-up Craft Shop comes from Sara Söderberg and I’m glad and proud that she asked me to host her first event. I love to share my space with creative and enterprising people and I’m really exited to see what they’ll be showing! Take a look at the event site to see who’ll be here.
Pop-up Craft Shop is pop-up shop with a mission to share and sell studio produced craft and design in a morphed shop and mini-exhibition experience. The project was started out of necessity because there are not enough options for creative makers to show and sell their work in Stockholm. To inspire a greater interest in studio produced work there needs to more and different types of opportunities to actually see and experience the local work being made.
The pop-up-craft shop will open with a private view on Friday October 10th 5-8 pm and will stay open Saturday-Sunday 11-12th October 11-5 pm.
This beautiful exhibition will hang one more week at manos – not to be missed!

Nu pågår en utställning av Makedas mattor här på manos. Mattorna är gjorda med traditionella hantverkstekniker. Det är kvinnor och män som är experter på att spinna, väva, färga osv som tillverkar mattorna i bergen i Kathmandu, Nepal.
Anna startade Makeda 2009 efter att ha drivit designbutik i Stockholm där hon sålde nyskapande mode och konst. Det var efter att ha kommit i kontakt med de olika uttrycksformerna som rymdes i butiken som idén till mattorna så småningom växte fram:
- Jag har alltid tecknat och sökte ett sätt att kombinera illustration med
användbarhet, på samma sätt som modedesign förenar estetik med
Genom att översätta grafiska bilder och illustrationer till knutna mattor an-
vänds den annars outnyttjade golvytan. I sina mönster tar Anna inspiration i naturens färger, former och rörelser. Hennes farfars gamla fjärils- och insektssamlingar har till exempel fått nytt liv genom en kollektion med bevingade insekter vars kroppar bildar symmetriska mattmönster. I en annan kollektion illustrerar fiskar livets cykel genom stadierna Väntan, Färd och Otium.
The shop is closed for vacation between now and January 18th when we open again with the end-of-season sale! While we’re closed we’re showing two fine carpets in the windows, both from the range “Lupin” designed by Lisa Vilhelmson for Almedahls. Lisa also designs the terry cloth towels in a happy range of colours that we sell at manos.
See you again on the 18th!
It’s such a treat to open a glaze kiln and see all the magic that has happened in that box of heat in just a couple of days. It’s even more of a treat when it’s a kiln full of work by my workshop students as they often experiment with the glazes and you never really know what to expect… More results here.
The last of the autumn flowers only a week ago, aren’t those colours just amazing?
