We found the inspiration for our Nanaos Dragon Pullover in the streets of Budapest on this amazing manhole cover.
Check out some other cool manhole imagery from Budapest.
We found these on a blog called Manhole Miscellany.
Here at Tea, we’ve been wondering whether the image on the pullover is really a dragon. Or could it be an eagle?
To us, no matter what you call it, the Nanaos Dragon Pullover is one sweatshirt boys will love to wear back to school and all throughout the fall. It’s sure to be warm, comfortable conversation-starter.
My Nonna had an amazing set of nesting dolls when I was little. They were my favorite things to play with when I visited her house (or at least, a close second to crushing potato chips in her vintage coffee grinder), so I was pretty excited when Laura and Emily brought back these beautiful nesting doll sets from their Old world Hungary inspiration trip. They immediately made way to my desk so I could ‘be inspired’ by them, but really I just wanted to play. Every time I played with my grandmother’s dolls I was always amazed that when I thought I had made my way to the smallest doll, there was even a tinier one inside. Turns out even now, I still get excited by this. “Oooh, there’s an EVEN smaller doll after this one!” I’d announce to my coworkers, who were actually working and probably not that interested in my toys.
This set’s tiniest doll even had a painted face! Thrilling!

Recently art blog BOOOOOOOM! and the Vancouver Sun teamed up on the Little Drifters project. While they are no longer taking submissions it’s still a fabulous fun activity for the whole family. Build a little boat using nothing but natural materials, sail it on some water and enjoy!
Check out these great fabric dolls I found on Etsy.
They are all handmade by Hungarian craftspeople.

When his young daughter only wanted to wear pink, Korean photographer JeongMee Yoon decided to explore the connection between consumerism and color preference. How much are girls and boys influenced with their color preferences by what’s available to them? Seemingly a lot. It just reminds us to to notice and make thoughtful choices whenever we can. As designers, brands, people, companies, parents.
