G Magazine


Our Kokeshi Bag was featured in G Magazine last month, an Australian magazine about everything green. A Pdf of the page can bee seen here (we haven't got an actual copy).

Still ploughing our way through print work over here but we have managed to make some new purses that are available on etsy. Only a limited amount are available as they were made with a paper cut-out stencil rather than a photo stencil!


And our floral purse is now available in a lovely bright blue colour with a matching zip, only on etsy at the moment.

These are the first photos form our new homemade light box.

New Stockist and other news.



We are super busy at the moment ploughing our way through various print jobs for festivals, bands etc.......so not much time for designing and printing our own stuff. We have found a bit of time to start work on the designs for a new range of customizable wedding invites, more on that soon! We ran a few new baby grows a couple of weeks ago as well, only available on Etsy at the moment.

Oriel Mostyn re-opened last Saturday after being closed for a few years to be refurbished. They have a selection of our textile products available in the shop.

We found out recently that we had been accepted in to the Made by Hand craft fair in Tredegar House near Newport which will take place in December, gives us plenty of time to prepare.

It's been a while....




Its been a while since we posted anything on our blog. Have been sorting out loads of paper work which got on top of us a bit. Have been doing a fair bit of printing as well including these Cardboard Kid t-shirts for Gareth Hacking that are available in our online shop.

A while back we applied for a grant from the Local Investment Fund to purchase a new conveyor dryer. The money has finally come through today so have ordered the dryer today and it should be here in 3-4 weeks.

In December we won an award as well; we were first in the Artist/ Craft Worker of the year category in the Gwynedd Taste and Talent awards
