We have brand new A Rum Fellow cushions in store. These mountain cushions are made using the most intricately hand woven textiles found in the mountains of Peru. The incredible skill of traditional weavers starts with hours of careful planning, with hundreds of coloured threads it is an impossible task for anyone but the most highly skilled of weavers.
It takes weeks to produce the highly ornate patterns in the traditional method with painstaking attention to detail. The weavers of these textiles are true artists who pass on their cultural heritage within the story of the weave.

I had the enormous pleasure of a Christmas feast with all the lovely people at Elephant Family last night. The charity works to protect Indian elephants and conserve their habitats. They do the most creative and wonderful campaigns raising awareness and funds through exciting public art events. Having already brightened up London with Elephant Parade and The Big Egg Hunt, they have something very special up their sleeve for this summer. Check out the Elephant Family website, sign the petition and support their important cause!
A huge thank you to Ruth Powys and Mahout Mark Shand for hosting a splendid evening!

We have some new artwork in store. Illustrated over 170 years ago these anatomical drawings were made in London by a W. Bragg. Drawn 'from nature', they are genuine articles of medical history. See more of this image here.
