My inspiration for this collection came from the hand-embroideries that were done by my Grandmother and Great Aunts during the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. To me, the garden is quintessentially English and tea in the garden is a true British experience although not to be taken without an umbrella handy!!
This truly English Country Garden collection is made in either pure wool or luxury linen/cotton and is hand-embroidered in exquisite detail depicting minute little flowers, trees and birds. The stitches are very elaborate and include leaf, stem, daisy, buttonhole satin and French knot to name a few. Each tea cosy has a handmade padded gingham inner in a contrasting colour which compliments the outer shell. This also adds insulation for keeping that all important ‘cuppa’ warm.
