Year of the Sheep

2015 is the Year of The Sheep……

In previously years, I have to admit that the Chinese New Year has often passed me by…but not so this year, as our Pastoral Collection has been proving quite popular in Japan! We recently sent an order to a temple in Saga, located on the island of Kyushu and I asked the customer to send some pictures as I was quite fascinated by this particular purchase. I have included the photos she sent in this email for you to have a look at…..check out our tea towel in front of Daruma, the Father of Zen Buddhism!

So, to celebrate the Chinese New Year, Thursday 19th February, get £20% off all products in the Pastoral Collection. This offer is only available until February 28th.

Welcome To Our New Garden Collection

Welcome To Our New Garden Collection

Hello…and Happy New Year from Helen and the Team!

Following a successful trade show at Top Drawer London last week, we are very
excited to share with you, our beautiful new Spring and Summer Collection,
featuring our new Garden design and our new linen colour, ‘Cowslip’.

As a keen gardener and lover of flowers, it was very easy to find inspiration for
this new collection illustrating some of my garden favourites, including Lupins,
Hollyhocks, Agapanthus and Alliums. This beautiful new hand printed design
features on our linen cushions and lampshades, hemp shoppers, toiletry and
make-up bags, aprons, tea towels and bread bags. Do take a look here and let
us know what you think.

We will be giving away prizes from the collection in our Facebook Competition
in February. To be in with a chance, be sure to like our page here.

News

Are you planning to ‘head west’ this summer to enjoy the beautiful Cornish coastline? If so, do pop in and say hello. From 23rd – 31st August my studio will be open to visitors for the annual Drawn to The Valley Open Studios Event. This is a wonderful opportunity to peek into a wide variety of studios across The Tamar Valley, talk to artists about their work and buy items directly from the makers. This year, we will be offering a very special 20% off all purchases of cushions and lampshades. Open daily from 11-5, with a late night opening on Friday 29th August, until 8pm. Once again, I shall be exhibiting with the potter, Jill Holland whose beautiful ceramics will also be available to purchase during the event.

I recently came across this fabulous little video which I’d like to share (see the link below). It shows the beautiful coastline of Whitsand Bay, just over the hill from my studio, from where the inspiration for the Rame Head Collection was drawn….locally know as ‘Cornwall’s Forgotten Corner’….. well worth a visit! Do check out our growing list of wonderful Cornish stockists.

I’m excited to announce that I shall be returning to London in September, having been selected to show at Top Drawer with Spotted+. Chosen for quality and originality by style writer Charlotte Abrahams, I am delighted to be part of this leading homewares and accessories trade event, being held at the newly refurbished Olympia.
