Laura’s Beau & Mitsukoshi British Week

10th October 2016

brits

As you may know, we have an exclusive retailer in Japan; Oxford Time, who attended Mitsubishi British Week, and we wanted to show you a few snaps they managed to take from the event!

Our pvc tote bags have long been a favourite with our customers; with sizes ranging from the small bags which you can see at the top of the photo, to the medium which are shown at the bottom, we also have long handled and zip top bags, so whatever you want to use the bag for there is the perfect size for you! The small ones are great to throw in your handbag so you can take it out if you find yourself doing some shopping, and we find the larger sizes are perfect for keeping in your car boot for those days you arrive at the supermarket and don’t want to pay 5p per carrier bag that will rip on the way out; the zip top tote in particular fits lots of groceries in and is much more reliable than the flimsy  bags!

We loved looking through the photos from the show; looking at what other countries perceive to be a truly British product. Additional to the fact all of our products are printed and manufactured in the UK, William Morris is a British icon in his own right; the fact that so many years on, his prints have never been out of fashion and still remain popular with all ages, shows what a truly legendary designer he was. His prints today are even seen on catwalks as shown by Marc Jacobs with his Morris range.

We’re not quite sure what was going on here with the cats!

It’s so funny seeing our fabric with Japanese descriptions! Proving quite popular with the Japanese, we think it’s because of how authentically British our business is. Thank you to our friends at Oxford Time for sending us these photos; every time they come over to visit the UK we make sure we have a British experience over here; often resulting in a lovely afternoon tea at Betty’s- any excuse ey!

🌷 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! 🥰
