London Fashion week has come under scrutiny in the past few years, with questions about sustainability sitting front row. It is no longer acceptable for fashion to be disposable. We believe that the most impactful of fashion statements are those that are timeless, effortless and desired to be re-worn.
Interiors trends have followed a similar fast fashion culture, with trends changing faster than the seasons. An emphasis on inspiration rather than 'This Seasons Trends' suggests that your chosen scheme can be influenced and inspired by Spring/Summer 2020 but must last longer than the follow up of Autumn/Winter collections.
We've put together a selection of our ethical goods inspired by this weeks catwalks. Currently on trend, you'll love them far beyond this season and they'll last for years to come within your home.

Millennial, blush, clay and plaster pink have had a bold new update. This decadent shade is already a popular colour way for our hand woven Kenyan and Ghanaian baskets. Different shades of pink look great together, a fuchsia pink basket will bring out the tones in your 'Pink Ground' lounge walls.

All over prints are a fun way to add some colour to your interior decor, this season they happen to be metallic, matching prints however, we're long standing fans of a print clash. Our top tip is to choose prints with similar colours and pattern size to give you the illusion of matching prints. Try our Garden Tiger Moth hand block printed textiles with our Bronze Palm recycled paper light shades.
If you're looking for a more sustainable side to Fashion week, check out the Positive Fashion Exhibition, or head to Fashion Revolutions website, they host their own campaign week from 20th-26th April.

We know there’s a lot going on at the moment and everyone feels a little lost in all the uncertainty. With the situation and guidance changing every day, we - as a small business - have a lot to think about, including how we can continue to provide our services for our customers and our artisans.
As a sustainable business, we try our best to be as transparent as possible, especially concerning our supply chain. We know all of our artisans personally and have spent a long time forging friendships and working relationships together. Many of our small scale producers rely on our trade as their main source of income, shopping small has a direct impact on these communities. The same can be said for all small businesses, buying their products or using their services has a direct impact on the owners, their families and the groups of people that they work with.

It's Mother's Day 2020 and here I sit in our beautiful and closed shop in the Old town of Margate. The sky is blue, the sun is shining – everything looks normal. I'm in sorting out a few bits and bobs.
We are living through an impossible time. I really don’t know if I am coming or going. I haven’t stopped thinking about this for weeks now.
I have a son who lives on the other side of the world and today I wanted to write about being a mother in this time of uncertainty and instability. We were so excited a few weeks ago. Amy and myself were off on a development and sourcing trip to India in April. Plans were being made and the agenda was set. Part of the plan was to celebrate my son’s birthday on 16th April with him and his girlfriend. He has been living in Dubai for 4 years and is now taking some time off in Australia.
