NEW IN - GORGEOUS WOVEN SCARVES - POWERED BY PEDAL
Who doesn’t remember learning how to ride as a child? Such a monumental achievement, that first taste of independence with the wind rushing by. Now more than ever cycling has come to the fore as we strive for more sustainable travel. But what if we could also use the power of the bike to produce local products more sustainably, removing the need for a constant reliance on electricity.
I’d always wanted to make a woven shawl as part of our collection. The French know how to accessorise well! I know you love our versatile wool wraps and I wanted to give you something similar, but a little lighter for the warmer months. The question was, how to produce a gorgeous and chic woven shawl in the most sustainable way possible.
POWER OF THE BIKE
I found the answer when I came across a small weaving business on the Hebridean Isle of Skye. Andrea and her husband Roger have spent the last 10 years preserving and using the knowledge and quality associated with Scottish textile making. But what makes these shawls even more special is that they are woven solely on bicycle powered looms!
I loved collaborating with Andrea on our shawls, choosing classic le tee wearable colours and weave patterns, the intricacy of which can only be achieved by small scale production. Using only 100% pure wool sourced from the UK, so that at the end of its time the shawl will simply biodegrade back into the soil. It’s a very special investment piece, designed to make you feel special when wearing this for many years to come.
As always I hope you love them as much as I do. Sarah x
