CHEK Homewares

A lot of you have asked and shown interest in my homewares range (thankyou!!!) and want to know a little bit more about it. Well I'll share full details with you all in a few weeks as we are hoping to launch our brand very soon, but to share a tinsy bit of info....I have designed hand block printed cushions, tablecloths, napkins, placemats, paper-products and bed-linen. We are launching with the cushions and tablewares with the upholstery fabric, paper-products and bed linen to follow later. It has taken me almost one year to design and source the best possible fabric and artisans, which is a really long time considering I grew up in a country where we still go to tailors to get our clothes stitched and all embroidery, dyeing, printing etc is done by hand so I have grown up surrounded by and appreciating the workmanship of these skilled artisans. For our launch collection the colours are indigo, pink and ofcourse yellow!

Also huge congrats to Kate and Mia (The Enchanted Closet) on the opening of their second store. I visited their store on Saturday and its gorgeous, from the lovely things they stock and display ever so beautifully, to the amazing detail in their store interior (specially the pink striped wall). I bought a fabulous pink skirt for my daughter which has such a vibrant colour and ruffles and layers..just the way it should be..Wish you every success Kate and Mia!
