Pretty typical design formula at work here, large image, super good looking textures and other little details that tie it all together. The textures and organic feel really plays well with the site’s hand made products it’s selling.

As good looking as this design is, it’s utilizing something that i’d like to bring up. Those small circles under the big images in the slideshow. I’ve seen similar design elements a lot across new(ish) websites. I think they’re just a bit too small and almost unusable. What do you guys think of them?
