Kids Party inspiration! This stunning pic was shared on Instagram by @littlewildoak featuring our calico pouches which were hand painted by the talented @_arley_ for a very special birthday!
Our Petite Calico Pouches are now available with White Twine as well as Jute Twine. They make excellent packaging or gift bags.
Another wonderful use for this 100% Cotton Rope...take a peak at my latest Macrame :)

Eco friendly fibres transformed...

I started cleaning my fridge and pantry one day and after filling a whole bag of uneaten packaged food and jars, it really had me concerned.

I realised that i wasn't paying close attention to what my family was consuming. I made some massive changes in my household, i try to buy organic products where i can and keep the packaged food to a minimum. This is what lead me to make soap for the health of my family and the environment.

I wanted to package my soap in an Eco friendly way and this is when I started to make calico bags as packaging for my soap. I then introduced the calico bags to my etsy shop and the rest is history!

With the popularity of my bags increasing, I introduced pure linen bag varieties also. I absolutely love working with linen and Eco friendly fibres!

Thinking of a name for my business was a tedious task. I pondered over many of the things that I loved, then I had it! My daughters description of her teacher came to mind. A lovely woman with a lovely British accent, that remarked “Thats lovely!”, when she saw my daughters project.

After that event, these simple words stuck with us and we’d find ourselves using these words to describe almost anything we liked. So I combined my love of Shakespeare and the simple word to come up with ‘ ThouArtLovely’.

My Etsy shop has also given me the opportunity to express my lifelong passion for crochet and Macramé.

With my daughter being an extraordinary contributor with her wonderful photography, I intend to continue making more lovely products and sharing them with the rest of the world.

Thank you for visiting my shop:))
