Elfie is our four year old daughter, she is home educated and has been helping with the orders since she was a baby, threading beads onto dreads, packing orders with daddy, printing the address labels for your orders (and sometimes you may even get a little picture drawn on your envelope)
She now makes her own range of textile art brooches, hammered silver & crystal pendants, textile necklaces, and bracelets, her creations can now be purchased in our shop, each piece is one of a kind and designed and lovingly created by Elfie, she takes a lot of time and care over choosing colours and making each piece exactly as she wants it to look.

We spent many of the last ten years travelling the UK festivals and green fairs, selling our handmade recycled wares. These days we spend lots of time in Wales, travel some festivals in summertime, and travel in the winter.
We grow food together on our land, and create our artisan felted wool dreads.

We also run a small organic eco retreat space here in Wales with two rooms inside an old welsh cottage, a gypsy wagon, Lea's caravan, a camping spot for 1 - 2 tents, and an eco cabin with glorious expansive views.
Here we offer organic vegetarian/vegan/raw B&B/lunches/evening meals, and retreats of wild creative textiles, healthy wholefoods, relaxation, belly dance, chakra balancing dance, and Goddess retreats. Plus crystal healing, aura diagnosis and assemblage point healing.
We have an open artisan studio shop here at Little Pentre where customers can visit and pick out their own dreads, wraps, braids, accessories, clothing, jewellery, or gifts, everything we sell is hand crafted here.
