Our aim is to ensure that every linen item we carry in our collection is simple, sustainable and stunning. We can offer you top quality, beautiful linen homewares that are designed to last and to enhance any interior.
For the ultimate summer wardrobe staple you can’t go wrong with a simple linen dress. Not only will it help keep you cool, thanks to linen’s natural temperature-regulating properties, it’s a versatile piece that works anywhere from the office to your vacation. Because linen has inherent crinkles it’s great to take away on holiday because there’s no need to iron – simply unpack, give it a shake out and hang to air. Linen is also a perfect choice for those of us discovering slow fashion and tying to shop more sustainably as it’s biodegradable, long-lasting and uses fewer resources in the production process.
This month’s Bookclub read was Damian Barr’s You Will Be Safe Here. This is Barr’s second book – his first, a memoir titled Maggie and Me, recounted his experiences growing up as a gay boy in a tough area of Glasgow. Having loved Maggie and Me we were excited to read this new one, a novel. And it didn’t disappoint. So often when you’ve loved a writer and they branch out to a different genre, form or voice you can find it doesn’t connect with you in the same way. But this book had all the emotional punch of Barr’s first book, with a broader narrative and ingenious structure. We loved it. Here’s why. Leave us a comment below and we’ll enter you in to the draw for a copy.
We are thrilled to be joined this month by Dorte Januszewski who, along with her husband Malcolm, runs Lewes Map Store, an online shop selling gorgeous homewares, skincare and accessories. Dorte has an eye for naturally beautiful compositions – she takes all the product shots for the shop herself and is a marvel at nature flatlay photographs on Instagram. Inspired by the Sussex countryside around her hometown in South East England, Dorte collects treasures from walks and expeditions and uses them to create stunning images. The products in her store are also infused with this love of nature, and are created by artisans and designers who share Dorte and Malcolm’s passion for timeless, quality craftsmanship. We caught up with Dorte to find out about what she loves most in our 5 Good Things categories.
