Mayde Tea x Next of Kin

  We live in an age of fast-paced consumption. Whether it’s information, images, food, lifestyle products and more. We want it now. We want it easy and we want more more more. Feeding into this state of being means that people do not truly absorb so many beautiful moments of their life. With this in mind, we have partnered with Mayde Tea to become part of the movement that has begun in many millennials to move away from these unhealthy patterns and towards slow, thought-provoking lifestyles. Founded by Kate Dalton, who has studied naturopathy, nutrition and herbal medicine, we have been long admiring the Mayde Tea brand and Kate's ethos.

There's Magic in the Mundane

This is a story about mundane moments infused with real-life magic. A slow story. A story about looking closer. A story about little pieces of appreciation. A story about the everyday alchemy that is in almost everything we see and touch. It is a story about mud. About motion.
