Vita's handiwork has graced Scotties for many years in the form of handbags, accessories and her collaborations with Marilyn Sainty.
She began making in 2000, and her work is held in the collections of Te Papa Tongarewa, the Otago Museum, the Dowse & Objectspace.
Vita's beautiful new site not only shows off some of her recent work but gives us insight into her process and words on the subject, as well as displaying favourite collaborations and commissions.

Love Story. A Film by Florian Habicht.
This charming New York story opened the 2011 Auckland film festival just days after being finished. It features numerous New Yorkers adding their input to the Love Story Florian stars in and creates throughout the film. Highly recommended by Scotties - we've never before been in audience where a film was enjoyed so much. Funny, quirky and clever, this film is an entertaining treat.
Go to Pictures For Anna to watch the trailer.
We've been stocking David's clothes at Scotties for some years and his site is a special favourite:
it is well worth taking the time to register......he is selling from his archives at his online store but you can also order these through Scotties.
Master chocolatier Jean-Paul Hévin brings a Paris a little closer with his fantastic website www.jphevin.com.
Along with his many exquisite chocolate products the site has offered such novelties as a chocolate iPod(for fathers day!) and his iconic chocolate stiletto shoe.
I’m told his macaroons are the best in Paris…unfortunately they are available only France!
And from our fair shores: Schoc chocolates of Greytown also sell online. They offer an amazing selection of tablets in flavours from sesame to geranium as well as the facility to build your own boxed chocolate selections online!
Ever wondered why our ads look so good?
