Pendleton: Way More Than Wool Blankets –> Pop Sugar Home

“The iconic Portland-based textile company has done it again. Long known for their wool blankets, Pendleton branched out into the world of clothing and accessories two years ago. Now, with their upcoming fall collection (available starting in mid-August), they’ve brought new prints and oh-so-seasonal color palettes into the mix. I’m totally obsessed with the scarves and tote bags.” — Jessica Mordo, senior editor, Sunset.com

Move Over, Dippin’ Dots: 5 Futuristic Ice Creams –> NPR’s The Salt

How do you make and sell food that doesn’t require plastic packaging? That’s the questions asked–and answered–by bioengineer David Edwards who developed Wikipearls, ice cream dots wrapped in an edible (and apparently, tasty) skin. This roundup also includes flavor-release ice cream and Humphrey Slocombe, San Francisco’s most intriguing scoop shop.” — Aislyn Greene, assistant editor

Extreme Repurposing in Sydney, Tin Shed Edition –>Remodelista

“And I thought homes fabricated out of old shipping containers, a.k.a. Cargotecture, was cutting-edge. An Australian architect has taken upcycling to new heights by repurposing a tin shed (yes, you read that right) into a studio and office. It is strikingly beautiful in a gritty patchwork kind of way, and the interiors are contemporary and bright thanks to well-positioned windows. And in a perfectly of-the-moment added twist, it’s available for rent via Airbnb (natch).” — Jessica Mordo, senior editor, Sunset.com
