+ Heath = :)
Heath LA will feature an eclectic array of Playmountain products including its newest line, Chin Jukan Pottery, a collaboration between Nakahara and Korean potter/designer Hyejeong Kim inspired by and fired in a historic 400-year-old Japanese kiln with origins in Korean craftsmanship. The result is four series of modern yet modest, highly-designed yet functional ceramics from tableware to home accessories. The summer shop will also incorporate original, handmade children’s toys from Nakahara’s children’s line, Chigo; clothing by Playmountain’s neighbor, Loopwheeler, a small Japanese manufacturer that uses vintage loopwheel looms, which date back to early 1920s Germany, and which, because of the slow, quality-first approach, only process eight sweatshirts a day; and products by TEMBEA, a manufacturer known for its high-quality fabric bags durable enough to tote and bundle firewood but stylish enough for daily use. Plus, new products will be arriving throughout the 90-day event.
