After a slew of lousy relationships cured by heavy drinking, the designer and brains behind I Heart Guts! found restitution in creating Black Heart. Known for their very colorful soft organ creatures, the faux patent leather Black Heart is a welcome macabre addition to the gutsy lineup.
The perfect gift for the rock star in your life, the black heart features shiny fabric, metallic stitching and a bloody red tear drop. We had the pleasure of seeing the quirky organ at indie design show Unique Los Angeles last weekend, where the plush heart made our own melt.
The limited edition heart is $25 and available for purchase from the I Heart Guts website, where you can also peruse their collection of peculiar organ-based goods, like digestive system stickers and gall bladder t-shirts.
