Week 1, 2021:
Brands spotted

Happy new year! For our first brand round-up of the year, we've found shirt-sewing kits from London, intimate waxing patches from Los Angeles and a collection of cannabis storage units from Milwaukee.

We've also had 696 NYC flagged up to us by our community, a company that has curated a selection of beautiful homewares crafted by Japanese makers. As brands continue to flood onto the market, curation is becoming an increasingly important layer in the internet shopping experience. 696 NYC has answered this challenge by creating a space where artists that may not otherwise be easily discovered by international consumers can create awareness.
