Weekly Wrap Up & Nona Bruna

by Grace Bonney

As the week comes to a close, I find myself thinking more and more about family. We have an entire month coming up in our D*S schedule that we’re dedicating to family (more on that later), so I’ve been busy seeking out people, projects and products that involve some family tradition or inspiration. I’m saving most of them for later, but I wanted to share this new line of products called Nona Bruna from Lola Giardino, an Argentinian designer living in Barcelona.

Inspired by her grandmother, Lola learned to sew and started making a line of perfectly sweet aprons. The detailing is modern, but they have that classic feel that reminds me of learning to bake in my grandmother’s kitchen. After she tackled sewing, Lola learned to work with ceramics and has launched a line of wonderfully simple tableware that includes plates, mugs and serving dishes. I have a major soft spot for handmade, rustic-style ceramics, so these are right up my alley. The glazes seem soft, watery and organic and present as beautiful pieces of everyday dining ware. I love investing in handmade ceramics; just a few pieces go a long way, and these are going on my list for sure. It makes me so happy to look at these pieces and think about the family history that inspired them. Click here to check out Nona Bruna’s full selection and order online. I’m signing off for the day. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you next week. xo, grace
