Karras Leather is a craftwork studio situated in Psiri – the area in Athens that used to be the industrial heart of leather goods.It’splaced just a few steps from Monastiraki Square in the centre of Athens. I discovered Karras studio one year ago during a hunt for leather gloves. When I noticed the studio window with the real vintage styled bags, exposed with their original shapes and unique colours, I simply couldn’t resist and entered. Nice atmosphere, a traditional approach and marvellous items –was my first impression.

I instantly fell in love with the original ‘Wannabes’ project by artist Deborah Brackenbury! Here plates play the role of canvas where imaginative compositions of taxidermy animal images are originally combined with traditional patterns, creating very stimulating and interesting pieces of art.

As the artist notes: “Sometimes I scan doll clothes into the computer, Barbie clothes being my favorite, and I dress the taxidermy animals in these outfits. The title Wannabes addresses our urge to create lives and stories for animals that represent our own desires. I have chosen to apply the images to vintage plates to reference the traditional commemorative plate. Each image is printed on a waterslide decal that is archival, smudge proof, waterproof, and fade resistant, and sealed onto the plate.”

And as if this is not enough, talented Deborah also has another stunning project where she designs concrete bowls and plates. Check out her “Impure Vessels” here.

As the designer notes in her online shop: “My designs are what I describe as Victorian Couture jewelry. Some are more Avant Garde and Risque. Others are more whimsical and Romantic. The common thread in all my jewelry is Victorian Elegance or Pretty with an edge.”

A wonderful selection of dreamy vintage jewelry by Japonica! I love the delicateness of their pieces.


“Japonica, which means Japan white windflower, symbolizes pureness, wilderness, hope and absolute freedom. This is how we want our creations to be... We planted hope in our Japonicas (referring to our creations) and it is hard to part with any of them. Nevertheless, we slowly learn that japonicas are meant to take greater heights, to take off and fly...”
