We've just returned from exhibiting at premier interiors trade fair Maison et Objet in Paris.  And what a whirlwind!  It was our fourth time exhibiting, and our most successful to date.

Our stand was bigger and we had a great position in Hall 1 - now rebranded the "Eclectic" hall, (and, according to many retailers, THE hall to find the most interesting and unexpected products).  Our position opposite Parisian textile designer Nur Gallery and Dutch home textile company Malagoon was superb.

We've a lot of following up to do, but I thought I'd quickly post some photos of the show.  Our new Chindi collection of hand stitched kala cotton patchwork quilts and cushions was very well received, and if you sign up for our mailing list, you'll be among the first to know in October when it's ready to order.

We trialled some plain radhi rugs which our friends, Dutch lighting supremo Ay Illuminate, showed on their stand to offset their fabulous oversized lamps.  The rugs were very popular, and are now ready to order from Stitch by Stitch in grey (below) and ecru (top image).
