Holiday Gift Idea #6: Spragwerks accessories

If you've been watching Project Accessory, you're already familiar with Rich Sandomeno, creator and designer of Spragwerks. A former mechanic, Rich draws inspiration from the obscure, the organic, decaying urban surroundings and his love for machines. We're excited to have Spragwerks as the latest addition to the Redeem line-up. With his great metalwork and jewelry, to his newest offering of small bags made from vintage military fabrics and old leathers (pictured above)-- an accessory from Spragwerks is a great candidate for the perfect gift.

Holiday Gift Idea #7: Cyberoptix Ties

Cyberoptix have been providing, in their own words, "Ties That Don't Suck" since 2005. We just received a slew of their new Spring 2012 designs, including the "Old Fashioned" detailing the recipe of the tasty drink, and "Whiskey Business" (both pictured above). Cyberoptix ties are hand-screened in Detroit and come in Narrow and Skinny widths.

Holiday Gift Idea #9: CB I Hate Perfume

"Scent is Life..." Perfume designer Christopher Brosius has been exploring perfume as art since 2004. With his line CB I Hate Perfume, each scent captures a moment in time, a certain experience-- and tells that story.

Our favorite for the season? Winter 1972, (of course). Described as "A field of untouched new fallen snow, hand knit woolen mittens covered with frost, a hint of frozen forest and sleeping earth," Winter 1972 captures the imagination, as all CB scents are inclined to do....

100ML Water Perfume $80
15ML Absolute Perfume $95
[And many other scents available!]
