EVENT | TOP SUSTAINABLE INTERIOR GOODS INSPIRED BY LONDON FASHION WEEK

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.

EVENT | INDEPENDENT RETAILER MONTH
EVENT | INDEPENDENT RETAILER MONTH

July 09, 2020

Did you know that there is a whole month dedicated to independent businesses just like ours? July marks independent retailer month, a campaign that runs annually throughout July to highlight the important role smaller, local, independent retailers play in the communities they serve, the local economy they contribute to, and in the retail sector as a whole. We think buying from small, local and independent businesses is truly just magical! Here at Artisans & Adventurers we pour love and care into each and every product you find on our shop shelves and we like to think that's obvious to you, our customers, when you pay us a visit or make a purchase. It's true what they say, "when you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance!" So to mark Independent Retailer Month, we wanted to tell you a little bit more about this amazing campaign and how you can get involved.

ETHICAL CHOCOLATE FOR WORLD CHOCOLATE DAY
ETHICAL CHOCOLATE FOR WORLD CHOCOLATE DAY

July 07, 2020

July really is a month packed full of wonderful events we can't help but get behind! Not only is it the month of Plastic Free July & Independent Retailer Month (both of which you can read more about in our previous journal posts!) but it is also World Chocolate Day! How fabulous is that? Like most people, we love chocolate, but it is important to us to know that our favourite sweet treat is ethically sourced and produced. Unfortunately, many of our favourite chocolate bars that grace supermarket shelves are not ethically produced, and the people who grow the cocoa are treated very poorly. In fact, child labour and slave labour is all too common in the production of chocolate and the growing practise can also be incredibly harmful for the environment. If you want to learn more, we recommend watching the short 2010 documentary The Dark Side of Chocolate which provides a heart-wrenching insight into the business of chocolate. However, that doesn't mean all chocolate is bad, in fact there are some wonderful companies producing delicious, ethical chocolate that you can enjoy guilt free.
