It’s winter in Australia and in Sydney it feels like a summers day. We are heading outdoors for a picnic this weekend, what are you doing?
Doesn’t this look like the perfect spot to catch some rays over a warm(isn!) winter morning? Get some friends together – you supply the picnic rug and they can bring the drinks!
The Sunny Jim cotton throws are your perfect picnic rug, light weight, easy to wash and they fold up to fit easily in your picnic basket. Keep them handy in the car for the kids sport or that impromptu bbq in the summer months as well. SHOP THEM HERE >>>
Our Moroccan throws also make great picnic rugs. Enjoy your feast on them and then use them as your towel post dip in the ocean (in the warmer months of course!). SHOP THEM HERE >>>
Get your picnic DIY on and get the kids involved – no more excuses for video games when you get get outside!
Stay shaded, Emma

It seems to be breeding season at the moment and I have a load of baby gifts to buy. The tricky part of gift giving is being organised ahead of time and having a stash of goodies available when any of those buns drop from the oven! Even if you don’t have kids, I am sure you have been in the position where you have no idea what to buy your friend / sister / work colleague when their bundle of joy arrives.

Happy baby pressie shopping,
We have something new for you and we know you are going to love them! Introducing our gorgeous, 100% cotton, hand loomed towels – made in Morocco. From us. For you. And they are simply stunning!!
We love the pops of neon and we also adore how practical they are as an alternative to a large, heavy beach towel. Use them in the bathroom as well as in your hand luggage on the plane to keep warm. Although summer seems like a long way away for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, I am sure you can think of LOADS of ways to incorporate our towels into your life.
Have you ever seen the process of a hand loomed towel? It is a very time consuming and an absolutely amazing skill and our Moroccan Artisans are out of this world amazing. Literally every towel is made by hand which gives them their unique look and feel. Throw them in a cool wash when they get grubby and hang them on the line or over a chair to dry in the house. Super easy.
