Wet Felted vessels Wool is perhaps the most ancient of fibres used to create something more usable. The ability to create a vessel out of wool using techniques akin to those used in pottery just feels so good. Our relative was a potter and the idea of making pots was intriguing until the wool was moulded into something that couldn't be crafted in clay. They are sustainable, breathable, light, soft and this is a love affair for sure. Our wet felted vessels can be used purely for decoration, or with a waterproof container, as pots for plants and also for air dried plants. Storage for small things, use your imagination. They make wonderful gifts. Check out our silk and wet felted scarves here.

As well as the botanical dyes which are from berries, plants and other gifts from nature, Rebecca makes silk dyed ribbons with a marbled effect which makes for very pretty ribbons popular with florists. Colours can be made to match your flowers and colour scheme. We recommend ordering sufficient, perhaps plus an extra metre or so for your requirements as no two batches will be the same. Colours can be soft and pale, bright like jewels or dark.
A few of our handmade hats are show pieces purely for decoration. They may be too fragile to wear out and about. They are often a labour of love like the Kanzashi hat in lavender blue. Each petal of each flower is put together by hand and then layered to create stunning floral designs. Look out for more hats and fashion accessories with Kanzashi in the future.
Kanzashi pieces. The Japanese term kanzashi refers to a wide variety of accessories. These include long rigid hairpins, fabric flowers and fabric hair ties. A Tsumami Kanzashi flower can have as many as 100 petals or perhaps more, each created individually from small squares of ribbon, organza, silk or similar fabric. The piece is then assembled petal by petal to create stunning flowers. Emma has leant this technique and now creates one of a kind headbands, brooches and clips to add that something special to your outfit.
