Rittle Installation

This week we welcome Rittle to the mix, a Melbourne-based label created by all-round cool cat Ellie King.

An entrepreneur at heart, doing and making has always been a passion of Ellie’s. After selling her successful city-based cafe last year she’s moved on to turn her pastime into career, recently going on to launch a homewares website Pieces 4 Places and debuting her range of handmade objects including those currently hanging out with us here at MHD.

Sitting somewhere between decorative art, plush toy and sculpture, the happy, grinning cats are all lovingly handmade and meticulously hand embroidered by Ellie. 

We’ve been hanging out with the cats for a few days now and can’t help but notice their individual character and charm… At once absurd, and yet strikingly familiar, the cats have certainly crept their way into our hearts and we bet they’ll make it into yours too!

We’ll be playing host to Ellie’s amazing installation for the next few weeks and keeping busy with the cats right through Christmas and beyond! Come meet them in-store today or read our interview with Ellie here
