Our newest window display has been set up by the inimitable Emma and Alice of Sister Studios. A colourful, playful DIY approach inspired by the aesthetic of a high school locker room. Bejewelling, hearts with bow and arrows, rainbows, rhinestones and flowers decorate a large length of dark denim that at the end of the display will be cut up and turned into tote bags.

“It’s not in our nature to waste materials and our energy, so tote bags are an ideal way this denim mural can live on and be shared, little parts of the mural wandering around the community” says Emma.

Words by Alice McIntosh

The bags can be pre-ordered through us at Monk House Design or directly through Sister Studios at

There will be 17 available at $45 each.
