Carefully sourced and curated by Mayde in Currumbin QLD from Australia and around the world, this collection of towels, blankets and homewares brings a sense of luxury and comfort no matter your lifestyle.
These artisanal towels and blankets are made from hand-woven yarn in the mountains of southern Turkey using 100% natural fibres – an industry in the region that dates back over 4,000 years.
Thistle Cove blanket (240cm x 220cm – kingsize)
This spectacular blanket, made from double-woven Turkish muslin, makes for an sophisticated throw, bedspread or picnic setting. Its grey contrast horizontal stripes across the light cream of the textile supplies a light, subtle accent.

Rich in both colour and cotton, the Rocky Cape bath towel is made with premium hand-loomed natural sustainable Buldan yarn, each delicate pinstripe of colour artfully woven by craftspeople in southern Turkey. also available in pastel.

Daintree Towel – white (100cm x 170cm)
The signature towel to the Mayde collection, the versatile Daintree Towel best as a beach towel or for the bathroom. Its thick luxuriant weave delivers that high-end hotel feel – no wonder this line is one of the most popular. also available in dusty pink, mustard, sage and chambray.
Linear and curve hand-crafted soap dishes from 100% recycled clay
In collaboration with local ceramics master Jo Norton, Mayde have released these two stunning tactile hand-crafted soap dishes.
Jo uses 100% recycled clay, which gives the unpainted underside a swirling, marble effect. The best shower room accessory, these soap dishes create a charming rustic accent.
3. Bedsmade perfectly fitted sheets
That feeling of slipping into a beautifully made hotel bed with crisp white sheets of highest quality cotton, proper hotel-style healthcare facility corners and a perfectly tucked top sheet is incomparable.
But trying to recreate that luxury at home is essentially impossible – no one really knows how they get that healthcare facility corner to look like that.
But Bedsmade – a creative manchester company in Surry Hills, Sydney – has created sheets that do all the hard work for you.
Their generous fitted bottom sheet fits any depth mattress with a strong elasticated edge. but the top sheet not only has the healthcare facility corner attached in, there’s a stitched edge to show exactly where it goes on your bed. No a lot more guessing if you’ve got the sheet in the middle!
Made with the finest quality 400 thread-count 100% organic cotton, these sheets make for the best night’s sleep you’ll ever have.
$240-$300 depending on bed size

Scent Australia Home’s Old book reed diffuser fills the room with an aroma that evokes exactly the feeling of when you’re in your much-loved armchair in the midst of a classic page-turner: calming, sophisticated, and somehow encouraging focus and relaxation at the same time.
Harnessing aromas of cucumber, bergamot, eucalyptus, artemisia, lavender, amber, sandalwood and vetiver, this diffuser fills the room with a wonderfully deep, luxe, moody fragrance.
5. Oil in Kind Geo design Diffuser – White Ceramic

As for the ceramic diffuser, when it’s switched on, its warm light and gentle, quiet vibration action diffuser create a delightful, kicking back ambience.
When it’s off, the diffuser adds the sophistication of an understated piece of decoration to any room it’s in.

Inspired by nature, crafted by Melbourne artist Trudy Rice and finished by Brunswick-based KE Homewares, whose workforce is a combination of skilled and special-needs workers, these stunning pure linen tea towels double up as sensational artworks.
Trudy uses a special printing process called solar etching that harnesses the sun’s rays to create the original printing plate rather than acids and solvents, which seems fitting considering the subject of her art.
