Christmas 2020 Advent Calendar Day 13 – Stephanie Borg

Categories: Art, Novelty

The Vintage – Traditional Maltese style is back! We are seeing tile patterns, Luzzu eyes, balconies, door knockers and much more icons that form part of Maltese culture!  

Stephanie Borg is a self-taught artist, graphic and surface pattern Maltese designer. Her living experiences in foreign countries have directly influenced her work and have enriched her love for colour, pattern and texture.  

Anything on Stephanie’s website has Malta written all over it, and her items would make an ideal gift for anyone who loves the iconic Maltese design!   

Here are my top 5 picks from this website.

A5 Malta Tile Collage Hardback Journal

XMAS Advent - Stephanie Borg #1

Price: €19.95

This A5 journal makes a perfect secret Santa gift or is a great solution if you’re on a tight budget. It’s an ideal gift for anyone who loves writing down their to-do list. Whether recording goals or jotting down ideas, this journal is a great choice for the dreamers out there.

Ceramic Tile Coasters

XMAS Advent - Stephanie Borg #2

Price: €6.95 (each)

These nice coasters look just like miniature Maltese tiles and there are 17 styles to choose from. Just keep in mind the colour palette of the gift receiver’s house and you’re good to go. Even if unused, these coasters decorate someone’s coffee table in a trendy Maltese way.

Elegant Entry

XMAS Advent - Stephanie Borg #3

Price: €10.95 – €15.95

Couldn’t suggest this kind of shop without including a print of one of the Maltese doors…. So iconic and Instagrammable! 😊 Aside from being the icons of Malta Virtual Mall’s Advent Calendar they would also look nice on any wall in a cosy home.

Cushion Pattern 11

XMAS Advent - Stephanie Borg #4

Price: €45 – €60

These cushions brighten up any space imaginable. The cushion is feather-filled and looks really elegant. Another plus is that the feathers are sourced from sustainable and cruelty free sources and re-used rather than thrown away. As always…. Hats off to all those who take care of our planet!

Family Gift Box TC200

XMAS Advent - Stephanie Borg #5

Price: €98

In this gift box you will find 6 Malta Tile Pattern Mugs and a Coffee stainless steel stencil to be used for those frothy cappuccinos… Obviously this is not a gift for coffee lovers only. This range of mugs is literally everyone’s cup of tea and it makes a tea-rrific gift! 

A great set to show off with when you have friends or family over for tea and coffee!
