TEXTILES

Our textiles are printed, hand sewn and finished by a family run business in Lincolnshire who have been ethically and sustainably producing quality printed textiles for over 40 years.

They have been commended for their fair employment policy and for many years have been dedicated to employing staff with disabilities whenever possible. The woven hem labels and packaging for the textiles is also made in Britain.

We design a lot of textile products these include Tea Towels, Aprons, Pot Grabs, Double Oven Gloves, Oven Mitts, Canvas Tote Bags, Cushion Covers, Napkins, Wash bags, Cosmetic Bags, Christmas Stockings, Tea Cosies and Bunting.

All our products are:

- printed using ethically sourced cotton
- printed using environmentally safe water-based inks, which is harder to use but has virtually no impact on the environment.
- environmentally safe cleaning process, making sure that there are no unnecessary chemicals used during the cleaning process
- Individually hand sewn together by seamstresses in the UK.
- Use fully recyclable packaging. We use card and paper and have recently replaced the single use plastic which attaches the swing tickets (I don’t think people know what swing tickets are so maybe use a different term) for environmentally friendly jute string.
