Edge of the Meadow & Contrado

 

 Customers asked to see our designs on a variety of products, so we are really proud to announce the launch of our new online store with Contrado  

London based Contrado, are a company that custom print and make high quality products on demand. Recently they came up with a fantastic idea, to create a platform for hand picked artists and designers to print their work onto a huge range of beautiful hand made products. Artists can focus on creating designs and artwork, whilst Contrado take care of production and distribution. Surely this is teamwork at it’s most efficient and a pragmatic approach to design and retail.

All products are made in the UK and most are ready in 1-2 days

Here is glimpse into our morning, followed by a delicious lunch!

A Dose of Colour Therapy

Happy Yellow

Colour as tonic!

 The sky was so dark and grey this morning I decided to pick out our vibrant yellow sky blossom scarf to make a cheery post on Instagram. Whilst it was draped on a chair  I mistook it for a ray of sunshine. A simple solution for bringing a dose of spring colour indoors!

 

Surface Pattern Inspiration

 

Neutral tones, rich texture and organic shapes.

I almost set off without a camera in the pouring rain but look at what a wet woodland walk can offer by way of inspiration for designers, artists and photographers!
