A nomadic spirit.

“A store for those who are inspired by travel and craft and want to create a home that’s full of soulful moments and memories.“ That sounds right up my street!    We Are Nomads is a beautifully curated online store founded by Jane Badu, another former Londoner who has recently relocated to the North.

Follow the route.

You know I’m a sucker for artisan textile brands that help preserve traditional craftsmanship techniques and support indiginous communities around the world.  When Angharad Allsop, founder of Routes Interiors, got in touch with me on Instagram to introduce me to her products and brand ethos, I knew immediately that I wanted to support her work however I could.

Which would make this the perfect time to introduce you to Attirecare.  This Manchester-based eco-friendly garment, shoe and home care collection brand have been on my radar for a while now, ever since I discovered their beautifully packaged products on

A good story.

More and more lately I’ve been discovering beautiful and considered homeware brands via Instagram, falling down a rabbit hole of hashtags, links in stories and the explore page. This was how I came across ethical homeware brand Collective Stories recently, whose gorgeous cushions were tagged in a story of an account I follow (sorry, cannot for the life of me remember which one!). Clicking through to their profile page I was delighted to discover their contemporary designs were handcrafted by
