Bags. They're a quintessential part of life. They will improve your look and form the basis of many a rewarding fashion collection. People love bags. Baggage, on the the other hand, not so much.

Mercurialist bags are handmade here in Melbourne. They are sturdy stuff and as Australian products, make the perfect way to do in your Rudd money for the good of the country.

Wnter 09 lining print

Vintage stamp chemistry print '09

Why is it that when your looking for something quite particular it's near impossible to find,
yet when your not looking for anything in particular, those same particular things keep popping up?

For our lining print this season we decided to go old school and use a combination of custom made rubber stamps and old vintage number woodblocks to print our chemistry yardage.

When we decided to use old wood block stamps for the inocorporated numbers and letters in a vintage typewriter style they were of course quite difficult to come by, however after some hunting the best finds came from a couple of Mecurialist's favourite stores....

The Lost and Found Market:, Tarlo and Graham, Industria and Chapel St Bazaar

Old typesetting letters and numbers from Lost and Found Market, we were delighted that the 100 or so stamps came with the vintage black ceramic cup they were displayed in....

A selection of vintage stamps, woodblocks and the custom ones we had made up.

First yardage print in progress.

Mecurialist Label Origin's

Me`cu´ri`al`ist; One under the influence of mercury; a physician who uses mercury, in any of its forms, in his practice.

Established In 2007 Mecurialist is the brainchild of a Melbourne based textiles and Industrial design duo, with a strong desire to make real things.

Inspired by the old world and mad science chique; Mecurialist is an accessories label that seeks beauty in the worn and weathered, the story of an object and the way in which it adapts to it's owner and their journey.

The label has a strong emphasis on the handmade, therefore no two pieces are identical, all designs have been made, dyed and finished in Melbourne.
