Josef Frank

Today we are lusting over Josef Frank fabric. I've managed to whittle it down to my favourite 3. What do you think? If anyone wants to send me a meter or two of any of them it's 53 Exmouth Market, EC1R 4QL.

These pictures don't really show the scale of the patterns though: all the elements are really big, totally luscious and bold.

(Oh Josef Frank, how'd you get so clever?)


The Caitlin Show

We have a flyer for our Caitlin's show coming up at the shop. And it's a corker I think you'll agree.
Please feel free to send it to your friends, I'm just about to go and put it up on Facebook too so please share away!
And do make sure you come to the event please, I'm pondering cooking up some Hinsehlwood themed biscuits - if that swings it? Yeah, that swings it. See you there.


Best leather shop in London

We've been hankering to work with leather for a little while. And now we're one step closer thanks to a very inspiring visit to JT Batchelor Ltd. It's an amazing cave of a leather shop filled with leather pieces and whole hides rolled up, it's pretty incredible. They've probably got everything you could possibly want in there.
Look at these colours all hanging out together. Phwoar.
Takako looking pretty ecstatic!
Also very alluring are all the fittings and pieces you can get. Tempting.
Yes, a very fine shop - just exactly the sort we like.


New studio corner

One of the big plan we had from beginning of the year was create studio space within the shop for us to work and it's coming together nicely. Big Thank you to our friends Brider & Bull who designed and fitted bespoke desk at the front corner. We get plenty of light all day and such a pleasure to have one flat work surface. Check out Brider & Bull, if you need to improve your interior needs! They are specialising bespoke picture framing. If you have stacks of prints and artworks to be  framed, give the boys a call!
