If you’re continually on the hunt for new and exciting things to own, you aren’t alone. We, too, scour the web for the most creative products and share some of our favorites on My Modern Met Selects—our companion site that’s like your personal shopper. There, we celebrate unique items from makers around the world.
With summer in full swing, we’re all spending more time outside. As such, many of our favorite product picks for June include things that pay homage to natural beauty. They’re practical, too. Leafling Bag, for instance, has hand-sewn a stylish backpack that can hold your prized belongings, but with a playful twist—the bag's fold-over flap is shaped like a leaf. The perfect accompaniment to this accessory is a journal from Cardtorial; its cover is decorated with a succulent motif that’s been cut from a wood cover. This makes the journal both an unconventional design and, above all, sturdy.
Of course, if you’re looking for something with a little more dazzle, we’ve got that too. One of our most popular selections this month were the mineral “shield” rings by Attraction Art Studio. Using a technique called electroforming, the rings are a brilliant fusion of raw minerals and metals like copper.
