Handmade 1960s-style Gonks available again from Beas Beastlies


Last year, we reported how the classic 1960s Gonks were remade in limited numbers by Beas Beastlies. Well, just in time for Christmas, the Gonks are back – and this time you can buy them online.

Based on the Gonks seen in that 60s cult classic, Gonks Go Beat, they are once again being made in limited quantities by hand and using vintage fabrics to offer a very unique twist. Indeed, they even have their own names.

The one above is called Stan, the one over the page is called George, but check out the site for the full range of names and designs. All are about 18 cm tall. and 15cm wide (not including arms) and sell for £35 each.

Allsorts wallpaper

This Allsorts wallpaper is an interesting find sure to sweeten up a kids room. 

Bassets Liquorice Allsorts have a long and impressive heritage. Having been around since 1899, they're instantly recognisable. To add to this mix there's a bit of 1960s cultural history behind this wallpaper too: the design has been drawn by Robert Benson, the man behind Gonks. His original illustration has been scanned and printed onto the wallpaper to create a bright Pop effect worthy of the sixties.  

It's available through I love design, priced at £350 for two rolls.
