Christmas | Winter Woodland Sustainable Shop Windows

This Christmas our theme was 'Winter Woodland' inspired by our new 'Garden Tiger Moth' textile range. think silver birch trees, furry animals and lots and lots of snow! Creative co-founder Amy whipped up some beautiful block printed teepees to house our fluffy friends and painted a magical woodland scene across the store windows.  

Window dressing is a wasteful industry, props are often created using plastic, MDF board and vinyls. These are often discarded after several weeks use, ending up in landfill or staff sample sales. As an ethically minded business, we knew that there would be no window vinyls or plastic baubles in our windows. Instead we opted for sustainable alternatives such as;

  • Eco Snow, which is bio-compostable.
  • Hand painted window designs using chalk pens.
  • Hand made 100% wool felted dogs, made in Nepal to fair-trade standards. 
  • Birch tree branches salvaged from tree surgery.
  • Recycled paper star lights, made in India to fair-trade standards.

Alongside our beautifully designed and sourced products of course.  

 

We encourage you to come and visit our stores in London and Margate to see the festive display for yourself. Children will love looking for the hungry squirrels and flying owls. Here you can find our store opening hours for Margate and London, we recommend coming after dusk to see the lights twinkling in all their glory. If you're in London, why not visit us for Christmas Wednesdays? Every Wednesday evening in the run up to Christmas, Columbia road stores open late with carols, mulled wine and festive shopping.
