All of the products in our store have been chosen very carefully. We spend alot of time visiting shops and showrooms looking for high quality, ethically sourced products from brands who share our vision. The criteria we use when selecting products to feature on our site are:
1. BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED - First and foremost all the products that we sell must be aesthetically pleasing (at least to us anyway!!). We only sell products that we love and wear/use ourselves. We think you will love them too.
2. SUSTAINABLY MADE - Products that are produced ethically, showing respect to people and the planet.
Here's a brief outline of the awesome brands we currently stock:
