EthicalLifeStore's Shop Announcement

As seen in Selvedge, Remodelista, Apartment Therapy and TRNK.
For my full range:

Home textiles, clothing and ceramics. With natural dyes and ethnic textiles I have
created a selection of indigo cushions made from Japanese fabric and antique
European hemps and linens.
To go with these I make pillow and cushion inserts and forms filled with eco friendly
fibres of kapok and firm support buckwheat hulls - all totally natural and sustainable.
I also stock vintage pottery from England - simple bowls, cups and plates in soothing
colours of nature - black, white, green, blue and brown for your home plus rattan and
wicker baskets.
There will be tote bags made from recycled materials and leather coming soon to the
shop and I have just added my line of hand dyed and altered clothing call Heboca - all
upcycled and over dyed with natural plant dyes and mineral extracts to beautiful
alternative and unique colours that are totally unique and that you won't find
anywhere else!
Contact me if you would like custom cushions in bespoke sizes. I make limited
editions of items but often have fabric in stock to make what you are looking for.

If you are in Oxford, UK and would like to drop by to pick something up, just let me

I will be at various fairs and festivals around England in 2015 - see my website for more
details (

Message me if you are looking to stock my wares as wholesale or consignment - I
can supply my handmade goods in small batches to all corners of the globe.

✦ For a calming and mindful lifestyle be conscious of your choices. I use only natural,
earth friendly, quality materials in all my handmade items. Vintage home ware is
selected carefully - I choose robust pieces with a minimalist design for endurance. My
altered clothing is dyed with botanical and mineral dyes only, rinsed by hand and
dried in the sun.
