London Design Festival Autumn/Winter Press Preview 2016 July 26, 2016 17:32
This morning was our A/W 16 press preview ahead of London Design Week as part of Shoreditch Design Triangle.
We showed our latest and upcoming projects and products that we will have in the run up to Christmas. After the popularity of our bespoke bone china baubles last Christmas we will be bringing a new range of illustrated baubles based on Charlene's folk style drawings. Our latest bone china mugs of our 'Shoreditch gentlemen' are proving particularly popular with our local and loyal customers (maybe it's something to do with the beard or stripey t-shirt?)
More new products include our latest range of ceramics with Royal Doulton, based on our popular hand embroidered geometric cushion range. The collection was launched in Australia and will only be available from us in the UK.

We're also excited that soon we will be stocking wonderful new products by Beggars' Velvet whose philosophy is that 'Good materials should not go to waste, nor should fine words be forgotten'. Beggars' Velvet are Sculptor & letter carver, Kate Owen and textiles design & author Ros Badger who are based in Peckham, South London.
Beggars' Velvet's products are playful but useful household curiosities that are hand decorated with interesting epigrams and words, pilfered from the finest writers.
Feeling dirty? Beggars' Velvet's new soap is emblazoned with 'Filth' or 'Smut', each soap is hand poured in Lancashire and scented with Eau-De-Cologne, the same scent since the 1920's. The masters for each soap design are carved by hand in welsh slate.
Although we are enjoying the summer weather we can't wait for Autumn and Winter after seeing our new products alongside Beggars' Velvets and we also have an exciting new project with Selfridges in the pipeline that is not to be missed...
