Overview

A multi-award winning shop providing inspiration for those who seek the bright, bold and offbeat. Imagine a place where colourful Celtic batiks and gorgeous hand loomed cottons combine to grab your attention and a shopping experience like no other. We design and make our own stunning and unique pieces - waxing lyrical since 1987 and still loving what we do!
