Colours and cushions!

Fresh new handmade things are zooming into the shop almost daily now, in anticipation of Christmas (and yes some people are way ahead of you and me on shopping for the big C..).
It really is almost like santa's elves when you think about it, as all this wonderful work originates from studios and workspaces all over Bristol and beyond, from the toil and craftspersonship of dedicated and talented hands.
These gorgeous glass coasters come individually and in sets of four, handcrafted by Dora McCormack.

They do look very toffee like and almost edible!

New cushions from Chez Williams are now in stock, featuring her retro style digital prints, in fabulous colourways. Everybody loves the bobble trim..

and they do literally fly out of the shop!

Red Ruby Rose at Makers!

We are delighted to now stock Red Ruby Rose clutch bags, that are extremely well made, clutch bags ideal for gifts, chic moments or special occasions.

They are inspired by her photography, illustration and love of textiles. Rowena, their maker, studied Printed Textiles at Edinburgh and went on to create a successful illustration career. She now focusses her creativity on these wonderful bags that are crafted from fine fabrics, dupion silk linings and gorgeous prints.

Teamed up with a Chez Williams cushion (below) here, you can see their contemporary yet slightly vintage charm goes really well with the styling in our shop.

And if you haven't been to the shop yet then you must! We have people who visit just to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the creative ambience, texture and feel of it all. Hope to see you there..
