I have my ears stretched and have done since I was 18, but the one thing I have struggled with is finding good quality plugs and tunnels to wear. I recently came across Omerica Organic who have a fantastic range of handmade wooden designs. The website is beautifully designed and very easy to navigate. Offering designs in a various array of different woods, Bloodwood, Chechen, Gaboon Ebony, Osange Orange, Pink Ivory, Wild Olive, Verawood, there really is alot to choose from wood type, to inlayed designs, whether you want tunnels or just ones with graphics.
Conveniently there is also the option to choose from wearing styles, which is unusual, the first time I’ve found anywhere giving you the option. My personal choice is always with the double flare.
I have posted some of my favourite designs featuring simple shapes, nice and subtle, all available in a variety of different woods and sizes, so prices differ.
They do plenty of fun ones too, make sure you take a look at the limited section.
I’m such a sucker for tie dye and acid wash, and when I discovered this beautiful brand Upstate, I was very interested because they use a japanese technique I’ve never heard of before.
About Upstate: Kalen and Astrid design garments utilizing their own take on shibori and dip dyeing. Each item is hand dyed and one of a kind.
Shibori is a japanese tradition of dyeing cloth using several different methods of binding, folding, or compressing the fabric. Small changes in the combinations of binding and dyeing create an endless array of patterns and textures.
I’ve included the images I most liked from their shop, I would love to own a piece one day, they are all stunning. I highly recommend checking out their website and browsing their lookbooks. The Silk Noil Kimono and Canyon Dress are currently on my wishlist. What would you want?
