This week Hermit will be bringing you our selection of top picks from Life Instyle Trade Fair in Sydney! There was SO many new, creative and just plain fabulous things on offer, I was like a kid in a candy store! But I’ve managed to narrowed it down to a Top 10 of standout collections that you will want to get your hands on asap…

First up, we travel to the quirky, and super cute, planet of CRAFT! Distinctly Japanese, this collection of cuddly characters LORIS (the monkey), SLOTH (the bear), RAB (the rabbit) and KORAT (the cat) are gaining quite a cult following.

The Craftholic range encompasses everything from huge body pillows to smaller plush toys, slippers, bags and more. Launched in 2011 by Japanese artist Ikuko Yamamoto, Craftholic‘s gang of creatures are constantly reincarnated in different patterns and colours, making them the cutest darn collectors items on the market. Prices range from $19.95 for the hoodies up to 59.95 for the large plush toys (and by large, I mean MASSIVE! Check out the images below to get an idea on the scale of these guys!!)

I think they are so freaking adorable, you can officially now consider me now a ‘CRAFTHOLIC‘!
