Craft Editions will be visiting a wide range of craft and design shows throughout the year and will bring you our Craft Edit of each. Our most recent visit was to Pulse at London’s Olympia on 17th May 2016, where there were lots of interesting homewares and lifestyle brands on show. Here are 5 that stood out to us for their handmade craftsmanship and design.
Rowenna Mason - Rowenna is an award winning hand weaver, creating a distinctive range of products, most notably cushions. She takes inspiration from London’s dynamic city environment and each piece incorporates colours, geometric patterns or structures from the city. Rowenna’s monochrome cushion collection uses undyed British wool. Find out more about Rowenna Mason here.
Josefin Landalv - Josefin is a Swedish weaver and textile designer who draws inspiration from her Scandanavian heritage.
