New Risograph Prints by ANO Studio – Dreamy Urban Landscapes

A close up view of an ANO Studio Risograph print. A red haired girl stares at a pink shrimp held between chopsticks.

This collection of riso prints by ANO studio captures the complex spirit of city life. With towering buildings, lonely rooms, bustling streets and empty malls, these urban landscapes feel simultaneously busy and eerily quiet. They cleverly explore the idea of loneliness (or serenity) in the crowd!

ANO Studio is a brand new designer to Hannah Zakari, and we are absolutely in love with their work. ANO is the sole creation of Hannah Kay Piché, an independent designer and illustrator based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her inspiration comes from travel and geometric forms, with a clear influence from Japanese design. The studio’s name is also inspired by Japan: “ano” is a pronoun in Japanese, roughly translating to “that thing over there”.

ANO’s risograph prints are printed in a harmonious pink and blue colour palette using soy-based inks.

ANO Studio’s risograph prints are all produced in a limited edition of 25 and stock is very limited, so get in there if you’d like one for your home! They look great either alone or paired together.

You can find these lovely prints and our full range of wall art over on the Hannah Zakari webshop!

All the patches! Cute old and new iron on patch designs by Mokuyobi Threads

Colourful, fun iron on patch designs by Mokuyobi Threads

Do you have an ancient denim jacket in need of an update? A hat with a weird stain you want to cover up? A backpack that’s the same backpack you’ve already seen ten other people carrying this morning? To all these problems, there is one solution: an iron on patch! They’re ideal when you want to freshen up, repair or add individuality to your clothing. Embroidered patches are also a fun way to telegraph your personality, your hobbies, and the things you really care about to the world. With a long history of association with counterculture they’ll always feel a bit alternative, even when they’re as cute and colourful as the ones we have at Hannah Zakari!

Because we think embroidered patches are awesome, we’ve just added a few more great designs to the HZ collection. This fun assortment of patches from LA based independent accessory designer Mokuyobi Threads features some brand new styles and some long time favourites, all of them colourful, quirky and a total delight to wear. Mokuyobi’s designs are for people who like to stand out!

Here’s a collection of our favourite Mokuyobi Threads patches, with themes spanning from outer space and international travel to ghosts, music and hot dogs.  Each one is like a tiny, affordable artwork!

Introducing… Buried Diamond!

By

Magic, mysticism and glitter from new jewellery designer Buried Diamond

When you come into Hannah Zakari looking for jewellery, sometimes you’ll find the jewellery looking back!

We’re very happy to have a new range in the shoppe from Buried Diamond, whose bold eye themed pieces have really caught our gaze this Spring.

Buried Diamond is the creation of Martha Moore Porter, an independent jewellery and accessory designer based in Brooklyn, New York. Porter, disappointed that she couldn’t find any jewellery flashy enough to suit her own outlandish tastes, originally started out as a designer by making bold, colourful eye necklaces for herself. Unsurprisingly her fun pieces started to draw attention from others, and before long Buried Diamond was born!

The eye motif that started it all still runs strong through Buried Diamond’s pretty enamel collection. We love the glittery eye collar clips and the large Magic Eye brooch! As well as this signature symbol, the collection features pieces inspired by unlucky omens, witches hands, fearsome cats and summer fruit. It’s eclectic, outrageous, colourful and fun, and we hope you love it as much as we do!

 

 

 

This is just a little snapshot of our favourite Buried Diamond pieces; to view the full collection, including more necklaces, fun charm bracelets and cute fruit earrings, head over to the Hannah Zakari webshoppe!

New Designers at Hannah Zakari – Lisa Junius and Mood Good!

By

Hannah Zakari has two amazing new designers!

It’s always super exciting when we receive new stock, and doubly so when that stock is from a new designer! That’s why we were thrilled recently to open parcels from illustrator Lisa Junius and jewellery designer Mood Good. Both designers are new to Hannah Zakari, and we think you’re going to love their work!

Lisa Junius

First to arrive was a delivery from the amazing Lisa Junius! Lisa is a multidisciplinary artist, illustrator and designer from Luxembourg. Her work is beautiful and dreamy, and uses a blue and white colour palette reminiscent of classic porcelain designs. It often depicts women in meditative poses amongst the stars, their calm expressions giving this artist’s work a peaceful feel.

Here at Hannah Zakari we have a range of Lisa’s enamel pins and patches. Each one is a tiny work of art you can carry with you everywhere; we hope you love them as much as we do!

Mood Good

We are also excited to introduce our second new designer, Mood Good! Mood Good’s aim is to produce quality jewellery that you’ll want to wear everywhere and with everything. Their pretty necklaces and rings are made in London and have a youthful feel that we love!

Our highlights from the range are the romantic Hand and Rose Necklace and the customisable Lucky Banner Ring. If you’re looking for a timeless piece of jewellery for a special birthday gift then we think Mood Good’s work is ideal!
