Around the world in 365 days

27th December 2019

Okay, so not quite around the world, but close enough? This year, our team have been lucky enough to travel to some very beautiful places around the world and have taken our products with them. We wanted to do a round up almost, of all the places we’ve been and what we took with us.

Madeira

This island is one of the most beautiful. The people are lovely, the flowers beautiful and the lidos just a little too cold for us to actually venture into. It’s so lovely to simply explore the island and take a look at the marvellous scenery. The weather was really changeable in April when we visited so we kept lots of layers in our Brother Rabbit tote – plus there was a great Zara in Funchal so we needed a tote to carry our purchases!

 

California

Alongside singing the Beach Boys from days on end, we got up to lots in California. The top left shows our Strawberry Thief red bag on the beach in Coronado just outside Hotel del Coronado. Famous for being the backdrop to Marilyn Monroe’s film, Some Like it Hot. We love that film with it’s genius ending line, ‘well, nobody’s perfect!’ Probably the best movie ending? We couldn’t resist a photo op of the bag since it matched the colour scheme so well before we watched the sunset over the ocean.

Following on with the Strawberry Thief theme with our other three California photos (our new and improved ST range was released just before this holiday!) The top right was taken in La Jolla, a beautiful coastal town. We saw lots of signs for Sea Lions but didn’t see any our selves. Lots of opportunities for great ice creams and great shopping opportunities here too! A beautiful stop off.

The below left photo was taken whilst on a bike ride on Coronado. You can see San Diego in the background – what a view for a bike ride! We got stuck in traffic when we went on the road from one side of the island to the other; in hindsight, stick to the pavements and cycle paths/ less busy roads if you take a cycle here!

Alcúdia

Alcúdia was a lovely little trip away to get some sun. We booked this after it rained for a week straight here in Yorkshire – a week with absolutely no sunlight will drive us Brits abroad won’t it! Majorca didn’t disappoint and this trip saw our Strawberry Thief and Brother Rabbit totes carrying our towels, magazines, sun cream and flip flops around!

Paris

Disneyland is one of our favourite places, it’s just so full of happiness! Especially during the festive season, it is all so pretty and magical. Our tote bag was particularly necessary here because it was gloves and scarves on outside and off inside when it was warm and we were all defrosting in the restaurants and rides. To keep it all safe and tougher, we stored them in our zipped top tote bag.

London

Whenever we visit London, it always seems to be a weekend of running round trying to discover the latest exhibitions and openings since we last ventured down. This trip, we decided to walk everywhere so that we saw some more. We also did some fun ‘tourist’ things like walking down Regent Street and looking in the shop windows and walking London Bridge.

Whats your favourite place you went this year? We love looking through holiday photos! We know our products get all over the world, including Japan where we have an exclusive stockist. We’d love to visit ourselves one day!

🌷 William Morris month day 30 🌷 As we come near the end of Morris month, we’re celebrating with a fabric stack, full of beautiful licensed designs, which is your fave? 🌿 “Remember that a pattern is either right or wrong. It cannot be forgiven for blundering, as a picture may be which has otherwise great qualities in it. It is with a pattern as with a fortress, it is no stronger than its weakest point.”- William Morris 🤍

🌿 William Morris Day 20 🌿 William Morris fact of the day; did you know he founded the Kelmscott Press? 🖋️ He wrote of the venture – “Here is a new craft to conquer and to perfect.” Printing began at the press in Spring 1891 🪴 He designed multiple fonts including “Golden” Roman typeface and “Troy” Gothic type along with “Chaucer” and he worked to create beautiful books in regards to their designs which took into account their type, image and decorative elements – you can see beautiful examples of what he achieved today if you do a quick search on the Kelmscott Press- it’s well worth a Google! 🌷

🍓 William Morris Month Day 14 🍓 Strawberry Thief was inspired by William Morris’s watching the thrushes under the strawberry nets at the stunning @kelmscottmanor 🌿 May Morris conjured up this scene when speaking of the design, “You can imagine my Father going out in the early morning and watching the rascally thrushes at work on the fruit beds and telling the fanned who growls ‘I’d like to wring their necks!’ that no bird in the garden must be touched. There were certainly more birds than strawberries in spite of attempts at protection. And the walls of the little dining-room are hung with this note of the June garden and the little lords of it.” 🍓 What a lovely insight into the Morris family life! 🥰
