Launch Collection: An Introduction to Olive + Daisy

My mother was an interior designer and back when I was a child I remember our house always being full of the most amazing bolts of beautiful fabric from brands like Designers Guild and Osborne & Little. I am sure this must be where my passion for beautiful fabrics comes from. There is not a single plain curtain or blind in Rhubarb Cottage, everything we have has been designed, printed and made in the UK. We are lucky that there are so many talented fabric designers in the UK to choose from.

Olive + Daisy was one of my first and most favourite finds from the gorgeous, crazy world that is Instagram and I am so thrilled to have some of their beautiful products in our launch collection.

Louise, the founder of Olive + Daisy designs fabric and homeware products all from her workshop, which is in a converted stable nestled in the Lincolnshire Wolds.   Inspired by her life in the country, not only are Louise’s designs beautiful but I also love her ethos - all raw materials are from small British suppliers and are designed and printed in England. All the homeware Louise makes is handmade using the vintage sewing machines in her workshop. Everything she makes is entirely individual.

When I began planning the launch I knew I had to include some of my favourite Olive + Daisy products. And you can find them all here. They make the perfect treat for a friend, or maybe just for yourself!
