Kinfolk Magazine Issue 9 is out now. “Whether you’re reveling in the great outdoors, doing some marathon baking or just lounging on the couch, this issue is our guide to striking the right balance and making the most of our well-earned days off. I feel like a phony working on this issue, as mine rarely look like the chilled-out pages that follow. Like many of you, I often spend them typing away or working on a project. We decided to dig deep on the subject of weekends and leisure to re-learn how to do nothing, live more adventurously and embrace those two days, which are meant equally for rejuvenation and invigoration. Take our Weekend issue, kick back, slip off your shoes and simply get out there and enjoy some good food and your favorite people.” Editor Nathan Williams
Kinfolk is a slow lifestyle magazine published by Ouur that explores ways for readers to simplify their lives, cultivate community and spend more time with their friends and family. Founded in 2011, Kinfolk is now the leading independent lifestyle magazine for young creative professionals and also produces international editions in Japan, China, Korea and Russia. Published quarterly, Kinfolk maintains a vibrant contributor base from Copenhagen to Cape Town. Every element of Kinfolk—the features, photography, and general aesthetics—are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
