Nettle yarn and natural dyes - our new cushions from Nepal
Well, summer's nearly over, and it's back to work with renewed energy, and new products nearly ready to launch!
I've taken a little break from our blog over the summer, although I did find time to write a guest blog post for Decorex, the Interior Design Show for Professionals which runs from 23-26 September in London. It was a great opportunity to write about some very interesting, creative people working in a similar way to us at Stitch by Stitch. All produce beautiful interiors products whilst supporting local artisans and socially responsible producers around the world. Read my blog post here.
I'll be writing another guest post for Decorex soon on my highlights at the show. Watch this space!
But back to our new collection. We'll soon be launching the first products - a range of cushions woven in Nepal which incorporate Aloo fibre, a linen-like yarn produced from the giant Himalayan stinging nettle which grows abundantly in the region. We've used all natural dyes, including indigo.
And I just love the little bamboo buttons on the opening, sourced locally.
The cushions will soon be for sale online. Please contact us to be the first to know when they are available.
