MayMay Chung Now Available Online!

I promised I would bring you more from the stunning new label MayMay Chung, and I am delighted to. The complete first-season range is now available online at the new MayMay Chung website, and it is spectacular!

MayMay Chung is the collaboration of three sisters. Trained in the different disciplines of fine arts, graphic design, and architecture they have all recently returned to New Zealand after working variously in Hong Kong, London and New York for many years. Combining their experience has resulted in this unique label which is already getting attention and has appeared in Your Home and Garden.

MayMay Chung's first season is themed around the sisters' favourite New Zealand birds - the fantail, morepork and tui or MayMay, Florence and Huey.

MayMay Chung's initial range of products includes homeware and stationery - cushions, tea-towels, prints and gift cards. They plan to expand their range to include bedding and bags as well as a dedicated children's range.

  1. Can't go wrong with owls! No, that's not true is it, you probably can go very wrong, but more and more I see owls used in design (owls and foxes, both very cool creatures!) And these ones here are very cool. The black and white designs are quite Aubrey Beardsly-ish.

  2. Yes, I seen owls used so much I thought I was over them, but these are just so gorgeous. I am a big fan. I really want some of these cushions for my lounge - get rid of the tired op-shop look going on in my house! B X
