designed; made

It's on again! The designed; made market is on Sunday 6th December at the IXL courtyard.
The designed; made market has always been a great day out to view some of Tasmania's finest furniture, jewelry, and textile design. The benefit being that you can purchase these items straight from the makers. Just so you know where to go:

The Market in November

We at kiswa would like to thank everyone who attended The Market, Nov 15, for their support, feedback, and general good spirits. We had a great time and hope that you did too.

Our tea towels (above) are doing really well and the introduction of our new badges (below) has been great for our product mix. From the way they sold and everyone's responses, you all seem to be happy with these new products.

A big thank you to all the behind the scenes workers who can together to set up The Market and create a great market atmosphere.

New kiswa Badges

Over the past few months we at kiswa have been toying with ways to improve and expand our product range. Some ideas have worked and other we are continuing to workshop. However, we are pleased to share our new products.

kiswa badges: while making a range of larger products, we have noticed that a range of smaller kiswa products has been missing. As a result we have started producing a range of 43mm badges. As can be seen, all our badges carry a piece of our distinctly kiswa cloth.

To make the kiswa badges an even better gift, we package them in a kiswa printed envelope.

We are pleased with our new range of badges and we hope that you enjoy them too.

New Products After Our Break

As some will have noticed, we at kiswa have had a short break from the market scene over the last month. However, this in no way meant that we had time off. We have been busy developing some new product ranges.

We present our new tea towel range. All our hand screen printed tea towels are 100% made in Tasmania, are approximately 50cm*70cm, and are made of a 50/50 cotton linen blend.

Also, for the upcoming gifting season we have some hand printed wrapping paper. We have printed on 100% recycled paper and each sheet is approximately 50cm*70cm.

More coming soon!

the market

Just a quick post to tell everyone to keep an eye out for the kiswa range at the market, Sunday 2nd August. We hope you come and check out out new reversable pocket purse and pencil case ranges.

Tuesday, June 16, 2009


As many of you would be aware now, kiswa is at the Salamanca markets! Being a casual store we move around the market, so you will have to keep an eye out for us. So far things have been going well considering that it is the slow (and cold) time of the market. If want to know if we will be there next week, just sent us an email and we can let you know where we are likely to be.

Farewell To Miss Hawaii

We at kiswa would like to say a fond farewell to Miss Hawaii. It has been a pleasure working with her, printing many of clothes, and selling our kiswa products at her store. While we will miss the doors of Miss Hawaii being open, we will keep the friendship that we have established.

Many thanks and all the best for the future!

P.S. Take care of betty.
