Lovely local fabrics

The other day I was looking for some cool local fabrics to feature and I came across Twine Fabric, the brainchild of Chloe Townsend and Cara Rosa. Their fabric (a blend of hemp and organic cotton) is used to make bespoke picnic blankets, napkins, tablecloths, tea towels and eco-friendly shopper bags. Their apron-in-a-bag (very cute, if you ask me) would also be the perfect gift for any domestic goddess. 

Their fabric is available in six prints (scallop, baby check, big check, birdie, big bird and stripe) and six colours (Betty’s blue, Chinese yellow, scarlet, squid, stone and white). Which one do you like most?

  2. Thanks Mallory! You're right, I love comments. :-) If you do get an ice cream maker, you'd better share your home-made ice cream with us all!
