We are so excited to introduce you to the newest 7gypsies collection - Architextures™; while making everything old, new again, this collection brings to life vintage objects turning them into craftable products.
Check out this great video where a number of our Crew show you up close and personal about the the new products, what the love and how to use them.
Each piece emulates what we love about the past, but want to use today.
Inspired by vintage finds, salvage yard discoveries and objects we love, the gypsies are bringing vintage crafts to the forefront of the creative market once again.
With a deep love for vintage markets, junkyard finds and attic treasures the collection takes things to a whole new place. This table set was part of the Innovations Section at the 2017 Creativation Trade Show in Phoenix.
7gypsies worked with patented Dutch technologies, unique material combinations and attention to detail to make this collection so unique. Glass bottles look and feel like glass, leather suitcases are smooth like finished leather and the dress form has a soft body like the real thing.
These wonderful Bases are made of a special ink material with a matte finish that has such amazing detail; the chicken wire actually has printed metal details. This technology allows the products to be so detailed, flexible ..... did we say they are all adhesive, which makes them even better!!!!
One more thing that this new collection does right is the packing. Every single piece of the packaging can be used to craft with like this super cool junky tag with all the right junk in all the right places. The packaging is printed 2-sided with not an inch of white paper showing - we hear even the polybags can be used! Love the no-waste thought process.
While the collection has a distinctive vintage look, it transcends across many creative styles with a classic, nostalgic appeal. From angel wings to fun and clever Flea Market style sayings there is something for everyone.
The name Architextures™ was derived from bringing together the elements we find in architectures both new and old, and a variety of textures that we just cannot live without. Each item in the Architextures™ collection resembles the uniqueness, the texture and the dimension of nostalgic objects as they are in reality. While some are shiny and metallic, others are soft and have a natural feel.
Bring the touch of a vintage market into the studio, craft room, scrapbooking goodies or planner with Architextures™ and get the look and feel of mixed media and altered crafts faster, without all the mess and additional materials.
So many great vintage craft basics to use in so many different ways. We will inspire and the rest is up to you.
a bit of the 7gypsies history… A young architect who wanted to be a painter met an Australian school teacher with a penchant for collecting things. They married and traveled the world together, having 7 kids on 3 different continents. As age mellowed them, they settled in the southwestern US and began designing for the scrapbooking industry, drawing upon a lifetime of traveling and experiences.
the original inspiration for the brand… To break with the past, this family of 9, minus 2 who could not make the trip, took a summer road trip through France, Spain and Italy for a couple of months. As the trip progressed, it became clear that what they would really love to do was to take their style of journaling and memory keeping to the growing world of scrapbooking. They had a pretty good idea of what the brand would look like since they had been collecting and producing things for their family for years.
but what to call their little company… They had rented a large, one of a kind, white van (a Peugeot Boxer) for their trip. It was a perfect size to hold the seven travelers. One beautiful day in the south of France, they were forced to an abrupt stop when a procession of large, white vans (just like theirs) spilled out of a field onto the road in front of them, bringing the holiday traffic in both directions to a grinding halt. Being at the front of the halted traffic in their big white van, they suddenly realized that they looked like a part of the traffic-stumping, white van group and that they seemed to have the job of stopping the oncoming traffic and allowing the cavalcade to turn lazily onto the highway. “They’re gypsies!….and everybody thinks we’re with them.” “We’re gypsies….we’re seven gypsies!” They named the little company in honor of their 7 beautiful children.
7gyspies may have a final home in NW Arkansas with a great group of brands, but it never forgets the past and works hard to preserve the memories. You can shop by collection look for the 7g sign and the collection name, search by category or search by name or item number, the choice is yours.
