Wireless mobile chargers are go!

Why we love wireless chargers (and why we think you will too)

How’s this for a quintessentially 21st-century condition: nomophobia, or ‘no-mobile-phone-phobia’. It’s a pretty self-explanatory name, but this definition from Techpedia leaves no room for doubt:

‘A psychological syndrome in which a person is afraid of being out of mobile or cell phone contact’.

Enjoy A Little Hope This Easter

Easter just wouldn’t be Easter without chocolate eggs. But it wasn’t always this way. Chocolate confectionery, after all, is less than 200 years old, whereas Easter has been around for at least 2000 years. Eggs are a different story, though. They have much to do with the arrival of Spring and are associated with new life, and so it’s not much of a stretch to see their connection with Easter as symbolic of the resurrection of Christ.

Fila & Martin Mulligan: A Story That Deserves To Be Told

Fila is well-nigh the most recognisable brand of sportswear and accessories world over, and a brand favoured by many tennis greats. Throughout the 1970s, considered to be the golden age of tennis, five-time Wimbledon champion Björn Borg famously donned Fila as his ruled the courts — and joining him were the likes of Adriano Panatta, Paolo Bertolucci, Evonne Goolagong, Guillermo Vilas. These are but a handful of mighty accomplishments for a company which had a humble beginning in 1911, primarily making underwear for the people of Biella and surrounding townships located near the foothills of the Italian Alps. 

Peek a Boo ... & Lou

Boo & Lou, a new brand of baby clothing and accessories, is the brain-child of Mary Warnest and Jane Cox, two sisters originally from Adelaide, which is where the brand name was unwittingly created when they were only knee-high. In an “aw shucks, ain’t that sweet” moment, their fun-loving grandfather dubbed Jane Ginny-Boo and Mary Mimmy-Lou.

From Garden to Table: An Interview with Stephanie Alexander

For Stephanie Alexander, food is more than food. It’s about pleasure, health, and making connections — to family, the environment, to life itself. Hence the Kitchen Garden Foundation, which Alexander piloted 15 years ago, is a schools-based program dedicated to teaching children the skills to grow and cook their own seasonal produce, and the rewards that come with it. The Hamper Store talked to Alexander about the genesis of the Foundation, the philosophy behind it and its achievements to date.

This interview was conducted by Raffaele Caputo at Alexander’s Abbotsford residence in July 2016.
