The Mustache Craft Craze

August 24, 2010, 09:00 am  Posted by Lark
 

We’re all a little bit fixated on mustaches around here lately with the release of our new book Stache. We notice them on the staff at our local coffee haunts, spot them on a fellow driver in our morning commute, and even imagine them on the faces of people who, perhaps, could really rock the mustache look. It was with that affection for this mainstay of fashionable facial hair that I dove into Etsy‘s treasure trove to explore the trend of displaying stache wonders on everything from jewelry and dinnerware to wearable items and printed goods. It seems crafters the world over are embracing the craze. What is it about the lovely curl of a handlebar that we find so utterly endearing? What you see below are some of my personal favorites.

TOP ROW (left to right): pleasantly plump knits, the small object, plants and animals, ole rattlesnake

MIDDLE ROW (left to right): murs blanc, nea wear, kimay, idle hands designs

BOTTOM ROW (left to right): how nice, fuzzy grapefruit, bread and badger, the bold banana
