The Shipibo people of the Amazon rainforest in Peru are experts at using the plants and trees around them for a multitude of purposes. Maria is head of the cooperative we work with to produce our Shipibo cushions, we asked her to show us how she achieves the beautiful natural colours, and here is her step by step guide on how to achieve naturally dyed brown cotton deep in the jungle.
Build a fire and boil some river water up in a large pot.
Dunk it, soak it
Then dry it in the sunshine.

I caught up with Lesley McShea at her ceramic studio in the heart of Stoke Newington, London. We have collaborated with Lesley to make the N16 Collection of bright, bold, and characterful ceramics. The vases are here and there will be more to come! I love having a nosy around a creative workspace, its so fascinating to see a world of tools and equipment that are new to me.
You can buy our first two vases from the N16 Collection here

We went down to enjoy the bank holiday weekend premier sporting event The Oxford & Cambridge Goat Race. Held at Spitalfields City Farm in the heart of east Landaan it was a day of goat based puns and hot mulled ginger Cachaça, and a very serious race! The Cambridge goat shown here pounding into the last corner for a glorious win! The event raises cash to keep this London gem open and free so we can all connect with our inner farmer.

Our collection of Terrariums are now available!
Terrari-What? Terrariums are defined as "a glass container, chiefly or wholly enclosed, for growing and displaying plants'. Otherwise neatly described as an indoor greenhouse or a pimped up planter.
These glass sculptures are perfect for a stylish botanical display. The meeting of glass, solder and geometric forms along with plants is stunning. Terrariums are satisfying to plant too, choosing and arranging your plants is fun. Watch out for the non-threatening circle shaped cacti, it's orange furry exterior hides the fact it will plant a hundred tiny needles in your fingers!
You can purchase our Terrariums here.
