The 2011 Christmas Gift Guide for Him & Her

It's that time of year when we all need to find that perfect gift, either for other people or just to give ourselves a well deserved treat!

Our 2011 Gift Guide has come just at the right time, when we have launched lots of new collections from prints to jewellery to bags and scarves - all hand made in the UK.

Woven Scarves by Sarah Tyssen

This collection of beautiful scarves, woven in the subtle shades of autumn and winter, are designed by award -winning textile designer Sarah Tyssen and woven in a traditional mill in Suffolk and perfect for both men and women.

The scarves are available in three designs; Scales, Check and Stripe. Each one has a slightly different look on the reverse which looks great when wrapped around. All the wool and dyes are sourced from the UK.

New Work by Alice Pattullo

We've just launched a new collection of Alice Pattullo's limited edition prints. Her signature style is in abundance in these ten new works but she is tackling new subjects from museum collections, pearly kings and queens, good luck charms to old favourites re-printed such as The Seagull and Sailor Book.

The Cabinet of Extraordinary Objects

A new addition to the online shop is The Cabinet of Extraordinary Objects. We'll be constantly changing what's in the cabinet (in January we will be showing an exciting collection by an 'amateur anthropologist').

It's the perfect space for showing two new collections; a collection of jewellery by award-winning Irish jeweller Eily O'Connell and the magnificent Miniature Victorian Hothouse Kits.

Eily O'Connell casts organic material such as claws, crab shells and twigs in solid recycled silver to form sculptural necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

The palm-sized Miniature Victorian Hothouse kits are designed by a firm of architectural model makers in Glasgow.

The kit comes with everything you need to have your own botanical garden including a seeds and a tiny little disc of growing material - just sprinkle with water and keep in the light.

Both collections can be found in The Cabinet of Extraordinary Objects
