Week 3: Father`s Day Fast Approaching

Welcome back to the Cork House blog, I hope you all had a relaxing Victoria day weekend! This past week I designed another coaster, but this time for Father’s day! Similarly to the mother’s day design I wanted to make something that was simple and unique but also versatile so it can be used at any time of the year. Although, I decided to make three different styles to be included in this collection! Each coaster is “dressed up” in a different outfit to suit any dad from the classic suit and tie, an old school bow tie and suspenders combo, and a laid back sweater and sports jacket look. This set comes gift wrapped with a matching tag and you can pick up your own set in various amounts in store or at the corkhouse.com.

I also did more shooting this week and discovered another amazing way cork can be used; phone cases! Aside from looking clean and stylish, they're also lightweight and provide great protection for your device due to cork’s durable properties. These are also officially available (on sale!) in store and online.

As we bring last week to a close I hope all our days back to work or school after the holiday isn’t too dreary. See you next week!
