Announcement    A heart shaped cherry (that’s me…Nicky!:

I design and hand craft eco gifts and homewares in my studio cabin in our garden in the Oxfordshire countryside.

I individually hand pull the eco dishcloths (aka Swedish dishcloths) using the silkscreen method - using only recycled Kraft sticker paper stencils and environmentally friendly inks. They’re really like a little artwork for your kitchen (or wherever else you want to use them!) and make cute gifts to send to friends. Finally they are heat set to achieve an extremely durable print which will last as long as each dishcloth!

The yarn items are also hand crocheted by me, using only waste trimmings from the European t-shirt industry. There is NO extra processing to create a yarn, so I must work with the natural fluctuations in yarn thickness to create items with an even finish. The inherent nature of waste materials and their availability also means that I won’t necessarily be able to create more than one or two offs of each colour - so you can be sure what you are buying is also unique!

Vindal:
is the creative output of my husband, Ian. He combines his passion for wine and vinyl to design niche and unique designs for T-shirts. I print these to order on high quality organic cotton apparel.

Both A heart shaped cherry (AHSC) and Vindal are part of Ward Creative Partners.

***PLEASE NOTE that during this period orders are taking longer than normal to process and deliveries are also taking longer, both domestically and internationally. Expect delays of up to 1 - 2 weeks for international orders.***

About aheartshapedcherry

Sales 440
On Etsy since 2015

Passionate about designing and creating useful eco focused accessories and gifts you’ll love to have in your home

I’m Nicky and my small business, A heart shaped cherry (AHSC) was formed from combining my love of all things fabric and yarn with my background in design (both graphic and web). If you’re wondering about the name…. I just love cherries and how sometimes you get ones especially heart shaped!

The business has evolved to be eco focused - I want to create gifts, homewares etc that people will love to use and have in their homes, but with as little an impact on our environment as is possible.
I wrap each order in recycled Kraft tissue and tape and ship in compostable mailers or repurposed (where possible) Kraft cardboard boxes. Shipping labels are even printed on Kraft sticker paper.

Eco Dishcloths:
Once I have honed my design ideas and cut the Kraft sticker paper stencils, I individually hand pull the eco dishcloths (aka Swedish dishcloths) using the silkscreen method - using environmentally friendly inks. They’re really like a little artwork for your kitchen (or wherever else you want to use them!) and make cute gifts to send to friends. Finally they are heat set to achieve an extremely durable print which will last as long as each dishcloth! Check out my dishcloth listings for more info on their eco credentials…

Recycled T-shirt Yarn items:
The yarn items are also hand crocheted by me, using only waste trimmings from the European t-shirt industry. There is NO extra processing to create a yarn, so I must work with the natural fluctuations in yarn thickness to create items with an even finish. The inherent nature of waste materials and their availability also means that I won’t necessarily be able to create more than one or two offs of each colour - so you can be sure what you are buying is also unique…

You’ll also notice in my shop a number of niche wine/vinyl designs on organic cotton T-shirts under the Vindal brand. It’s my husband’s creative output! He designs them and I print them on high quality organic cotton T-shirts. They’ve been bought and worn by many a well-known wine bod!
