About the garland:

The shapes are sewn in a random order along strong cotton thread, with hanging loops either end, meaning you can hang your garland straight away!

- features ten paper shapes, sewn along strong cotton thread
- screen printed by hand on both sides
- hand printed by talented artisans in Jaipur
- please note, every garland is hand printed so may vary slightly from the photograph, this just adds to the charm!
About the soap:
A must have soap for any lover of floral fragrances. We have been told on many occasions that this smells "Just like Turkish Delight" and we are inclined to agree!
Our Rose Geranium soap is naturally coloured pink with Alkanet root and is topped with real, dried rose petals. A rich mix of oils and butters are combined with pure Rose Geranium essential oil and beeswax to create a bar that looks and smells divine.
About the poem book card:
A bouquet is a welcome and beautiful thing, but the beauty is inevitably short-lived. This delightful mini-anthology, however, is guaranteed never to wither. Roses, fritillaries, daisies, gentians and the humble ragwort are celebrated here by poets ranging from Mimi Khalvati to William Wordsworth.
We experience their colours and scents in vivid language, so each lives on the page with all the intensity of a real flower. Sometimes it seems we can even learn from them; lilacs growing in an urban street know as much about love as we do:
“Lilac, like love, makes no distinction.
It will open for anyone.
Even before love knows that it is love
lilac knows it must blossom.”
from ‘City Lilacs’ by Helen Dunmore
This is one of the lovely mysteries of these poems – that a flower can somehow be like us and shed light on our own hopes and joys.
Poems by John Clare, Beth Davies, Helen Dunmore, John Heath-Stubbs, Seán Hewitt, Mimi Khalvati, DH Lawrence, Anne Ridler, Edward Thomas and William Wordsworth.
