January was a busy month spent planning for the year ahead and designing new products. Several new pieces are now in production and will be announced very soon! I cannot wait for you to see them!
Having sold out of our Kilim Draught Excluders at the end of 2019, I have been back on the sewing machine and the new designs are online now!
Yesterday two Ikat and four Kilim Ottomans were safely delivered to Ad Lib Gallery for The Parsons Green Art Festival. They will be for sale there until 27th February. Do pop in to see them!

Designing furniture has led me around the world in search of skilled makers and crafts men and women. Having begun my journey with the Kilim weavers in Turkey, I have continued on to Uzbekistan, Egypt and Indonesia as well as closer to home to the Cornish coast.
It is this union of contemporary design with global age-old craft that I love so much. Having spent a month looking out across the world in search of new makers, I have chosen my February poem as a homage to my home city.
Love, Issy x
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!
