Families come in all shapes and sizes, and these differences deserve to be celebrated. That’s why for the Autumn 37 Issue of Peppermint we’ve spoken to a few lovely people  – such as writer Michelle Law, Instagram sensations Real Dads of Melbourne, photographer Georgia Brizuela and others – about what makes their tribes unique.

Cover stars Lotte Barnes and Lia-Belle King (pictured with their adorable daughter Ophelia and dog Gray) from Bangalow-based furniture brand Worn Store talk family, design and authenticity, while Muslim academic and author Susan Carland explores faith, feminism and dealing with negativity. And when it comes to fashion, we’re celebrating five years of the Fashion Revolution movement, as well as taking a look inside Melbourne’s best-kept handmade denim secret, Dejour Jeans.

Elsewhere there’s eco style tips, plant-based leather alternatives, sustainable salt, the lost art of letter writing, natural toothpastes, everyday eco undies and a guide to botanical dyeing. Grab a cup of tea, put your feet up and enjoy! We hope it helps remind you of the things that really matter in life. Find yours in newsagents or buy a copy here.
