The Fableists, their official launch is today!
The Fableists (fay-buh-list) noun, pl.
Beautiful dark organic denim
Limited edition art tees, with cool passport… handwritten 1/500
Vintage inspired, classic already!
Buy less wear more…
Doesn’t sound very commercial. Which we really like!
Then we know we have to deal with a story, a mission.
And they do have a big mission.
It started with the idea that they want to break the cycle of kids making clothes for kids.
But it became more … The very coolest of clobber
that is sustainable, ethical and built to last.
All about respect!
What we really admire about this new very cool brand is that
you can buy an organic eco-friendly item… which first of all is just very cool
and make your child look the hippest kid in town.
Second of all you can pass them on, because it’s made very well
and is completely sustainable.
And third, it’s for boys and girls… So you can pass it on to your cool little sista…
Or cool lil’ brotha!
Biggest plus! No treads about seasons!
You can wear this the whole year round!
Something that is our vision too!
Baseball shirt and Breton is one everybody wants to have in their closet right?
They have it. Classic!
But what about these limited edition tees, with a passport?
From cool artists Anthony Peters, Crispin Finn,
Gregori Saavedra & Sami Viljanto
And then the denim… We love denim you see…
The thing is, this very cool new kidsbrand fits us like a glove.
Big thanks to the Fableists-crew
for being so inspiring and creative!
HAPPY LAUNCH DAY !!!
p.s. We were VERY VERY LUCKY to have won
13 limited edition tees in their competition… Plus the first of the first everrr…
We were fans already, but this made us dancing! Haha…

We’re in LOVE!!!!!!
… with a monster …
… well especially with
BIG FOOT & LITTLE FOOT
because they’re sooooo sweet together!
And we recognize ourselves in it, haha!
But the others are cooler then cool!
Mr. Big & Mr. Snow for example…
It’s the work of illustrator and graphic designer Anna Johnstone.
Painted on wood. We love the combination with black paint.
Makes it graphic and very strong!
Plus every wooden plate has got a different structure,
so a different feeling.
We wish we had seen her solo exhibition live.
“So I heard you like Monsters”.
The bigger paintings.
You can also buy her work online too,
so check it out here!
Although we can’t figure out if ‘these versions of cool’ are still available,
but you can find out when you
contact the artist.
We’re saving some dollars to buy this
COOLER than COOL gift!
Equal chances for all the children living on our planet.
How amazing that would be…
Unfortunately that’s not the case…
Indonesian Island Bali is a very popular holiday destination.
Great food, beautiful culture and landscapes
and the big ocean.
But the other side of this ‘fairytale’ is the harsh reality.
There are so many orphans and streetkids on Bali. Really sad.
It’s about surviving and no luxury at all.
Plus the intense sad pollution on this beautiful island.
Luckily for these kids, Dutch Rodney Westerlaken,
started a great project in the summer of 2008,
which will give them much more hope & a happier perspective.
It’s called SOUL SURF PROJECT BALI.
In 2007 he was a volunteer at an orphanage.
But after he found out that the owner spend all his donated money to herself,
he decided to make sure only the kids would benefit from donations.
The only thing he could do was to start a project himself
to make sure it was all about the future of the kids.
Not the greedy ‘so called support’.
Before he helped out at the orphanage, he always went surfing.
So he arrived with wet hair and his surfboard.
The kids were curious about that, because they didn’t understand…,
So he decided to organize a big surfing-class for them together with Ripcurl.
+ besides that, the kids threw away their garbarge and not in waste-bins they brought.
There was no awareness at all!
So he thought 1+1=2
Soul Surf Project Bali;
“With surfing we have a method which is helping us to protect the coast and its environment!
Surfing will be given as a reward for growing awareness and knowledge and a new attitude.
While surfing, the kids are in the elements of mother nature,
by being in those elements they will learn to appreciate it!”
We, the Cool Heads, would really like to support this project,
because they TEACH!
Not only surfing and English classes, but they see
THE BIGGER PICTURE…
It’s about awareness!
For the environment on their, in original, beautiful Island.
But also about getting chances, working hard and get rewarded for that.
The kids are our future!
There are already a few SUCCES STORIES;
DANI who’s dream is to be a professional photographer.
She can work part-time for the project.
She’s not able to go to school because she’s recovering from a really heavy back surgery.
Now doing fine, so she’s slowly getting back and can photograph a few hours.
That will make her so happy we guess…
PREMA (in action on the first picture) is a very enthousiastic kid
and great surfer already.
He’s helping out in the eco-surfshop, and with surfing lessons,
creates new eco-products for the shop and will have an internship at Ripcurl.
What an amazing story!
The program will also make sure he will get his lifesaving- and surfteacher degree
and after two years it’s possible to get a microcredit to built up his own business.
All this is possible now because of the human and brilliant thinking of Rodney
when he started this and his cool (volunteer) crew
for making it work for already 5 years!
Plus support from the pro’s like Mick Fanning, Gabriel Medina,
Bethany Hamilton is a big help too.
Ripcurl and SSPB are joining forces, launched in August,
in an exclusive sponsorship for one year.
But they really need much more funds or donations to make it possible
to teach much more kids.
So, SUPPORT THIS GREAT PROJECT!
To make a better future for kids like Prema, Dani and Pika!
They already showed their strength and courage!
These kids are the future. With this project it looks like a bright future.
Possibilities enough to support. By donate wax or a bin bag by sms…
or support the possibility of a van…
They really need that ‘biggie expense’ to go on fieldtrips, to educate about the environment…
A second Balsawood surfboard for the talentclass is very much needed.
And you can shop in the first ECO SURF SHOP. How cool is that!
But you can also take surflessons at their surfschool when you’re on holiday at Bali.
That’s support too!
They are the first and only surfschool who will give back
your payment for your surfinglessons
straight to the programs for the orphans and streetkids of Bali.
What we also like about this project in particular is that
it’s very contemporary. I mean the website, the daily updates.
They’re very transparent on social media. You can follow everything.
Through the 1% club you can also donate by time, knowledge and money.
MOUNTAIN pillows. MOUNTAIN bedsheets,
MOUNTAIN poufs (Mount Everest, Kilimanjaro, Fuji),
MOUNTAIN long sleeved tee
BEARS on tiles,
very well illustrated BEARS,
and TREES wallpaper.
A lot of designers, creatives, illustrators and artists are inspired by
mountains, bears and trees…
Back to nature…
They’re everywhere, all worked out very well.
Sometimes it’s almost impressive art.
At least very contemporary.
So we are very much inspired too…
Enjoy more here!

Coolness from the past. This image got it all!
It could have been this year,
photographed for a cool kids magazine,
on a suburb-location with two ‘neon’ cool kids skating around.
Because of the fact that slowely some girls
are entering our home,
…since my oldest son is suddenly interested in them…
Mum’s more interested in their style and appearence too.
It happens before you have a clue…

Because of the Worlds Animal Day today, we have to share this.
We’re enjoying every picture of these two… It’s got such a big hug-factor!
Japanese cutest little boy Tasuku and his cool French Bulldog ‘best buddy’ Muu…
are the coolest and most adorable friends on the planet!
These images say everything about their amazing friendship
and the way they live together.
Many thanks to cool mum Aya Sakai, who’s taking these beautiful pictures…,
sharing them and making us smile every time!

To Muu we would like to say…

This summer we’ve spent 8 days in Copenhagen-area and Hillerød, Denmark.
Also enjoying one touristic tour. The beautiful, fairytale kind of Castle,
Frederiksborg Slot in Hillerød.
The summer residence of the Danish Royal Family.
Anyway, besides all the beautiful paintings, rooms and ‘walking arounds’,
we always end up in the shop.
There we found this cool DIY.
It felt so contemporary with all the beautiful colors.
One with cool green/white harlequin pants…
we love that one! … and the fish…
It appeared to be from 1918
Drawn and created by Danish Architect Hans H. Koch.
It was used as ornaments in Christmas trees.
Now we own it ,
we don’t want to cut it…
To be honest… ,
we want to FRAME it.
because it’s old skool art!
Yes, all these cool contemporary boys got swag!
Thanks to the coolest new ‘specs’-designs from
Very French Gangsters‘s
3rd collection called BY THE WAY.
Great photography, cool styling and
