Only a small pocket of fishermen on the Cilento coast of Italy still catch anchovies in the ancient Menaica technique, named for the nets they use. Their process epitomizes the concept of slow food, and involves a nightly excursion with the special, loose nets that are built to catch only the larger swimmers. The fresh, red anchovies are immediately cleaned and brined seaside, then placed in terracotta pots in between layers of salt, to rest for three months before they're aged to perfection.

Børge Mogensen's Hunting Chair is a beautiful piece of design, though it comes at a price. Somewhat resembling a deck chair, this piece is more architectural and crafted from oak and leather. Brass is also used—with large but stylish buckles allowing the chair to adjust. It's available in black or natural leather with lacquered, soaped or exposed wood—our pick is certainly the latter. This is a stunning piece to add to any home.
Written by Stockholm-based illustrator and architect Maja Säfström, this little hardcover book is as educational for adults as it is for children. Full of sweet and strange creatures (like the Opabinia, an ancient sea creature; and the Indriotherium; a hornless rhino) the book's illustrations are delightful. Moreover, each animal featured is accompanied by fascinating facts, for example: Giant Pacarana were rodents the size of cows, who had 12-inch teeth. Or terror birds (Phorusrhacids) which were taller than humans and were South America's greatest predator for some time. It's a charming way to learn about these remarkable animals, and indeed the complicated and temporary nature of life on Earth.
With all proceeds from the sale of this T-shirt going to organizations supported by Design for Progress (Planned Parenthood, Everytown for Gun Safety, the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Human Rights Campaign, EarthJustice, and the National Immigration Law Center), you can feel good about sporting this garb. Made from soft gauge cotton modal jersey, it's got a worn-in and vintage look and feel, and the message is simple: Resist, Persist, Insist.

Made from 100% cotton, these ribbed socks lend a little positivity to the day—thanks to their "Good Mood" embroidery. Available in white (with black lettering) they feature non-slip rubber under the sole. They measure approximately 23 to 27cm and are—of course—for all genders.
Half the reason to buy this "Self Love" choker by Prrrl is because they are donating all 100% of proceeds to Brooklyn's HEAT Program (Health and Education Alternatives for Teens) for the month of March. The service offers developmentally and culturally appropriate care for young people of all genders and sexualities who are at risk of HIV/AIDS. The other half, of course, is the sterling silver (with rhodium charms) necklace itself, which should serve as a reminder to be kind and respectful to yourself.
Always marrying function with form, Tanner Goods has just released a new bag that easily transitions from the office or class to the market, brunch and back again. Made from durable, waxed 18-ounce twill canvas and vegetable-tanned Meridian English bridle leather, the Everyday Tote is far superior to the average cotton or canvas tote.

Step into a time capsule of NYC's nightlife scene in the '80s to '90s—when DJs and promoters would print flyers (often made by people with no design experience) by the thousands and hope their events would spread by word of mouth. Though the internet killed this DIY practice, these ephemeral pieces of paper, with their arresting aesthetic, have been collected to make a book filled with attitude and nostalgia. After selling out its initial run, "No Sleep" is now available thanks to a second printing—nab while you can.
