Pop-up Shop at Hill & Co 16th – 24th May 2014

Our Pop up Shop will be opening on Friday 16th May at 10.00am and running until Saturday 24th May (closed on Sunday).  Our guest for the week is Chapel Collection, a carefully curated collection of clothes made in India, including young emerging designers such as Maku, Not Like You and Injiri – straight from Bath in Fashion week.  There will also be fine cotton easy to wear tops, tunics and dresses; linen shift dresses; cotton, silk and voile scarves; striking ikat sarongs, mens shirts and waistcoats and pretty summery jewellery.   We may look a bit different for a week or so but all our usual stock will be available – not quite sure how it will all fit in – a little de-cluttering is definitely in order!   So, please excuse our upcoming temporary change of appearance, but we hope you can come and visit and see what treats we have put together in anticipation of a long hot summer!

Just back from a BIG adventure in India!

Just spent an absolutely amazing two weeks in Northern India.  My first trip to this extraordinary country started rather shakily but in no time at all I was hooked!    Aside from the stunning architecture, the vibrant colours and the sheer volume of people, it was the smaller details which were a constant fascination to me.    I just wish I had the vocabulary to describe the wonders of the place!  I could reel off all the cliches and still not be able to express the assault on my senses over the past fortnight.   So, hopefully over the next weeks, as I upload pictures of some of my finds to the website,  my experience of India will be portrayed in the diverse things I have bought back with me.  Only small stocks available of fine light cashmere ponchos, gorgeous handwoven silk and wool wraps, pretty covered notebooks tied up with coloured thread, handmade cards from recycled cotton,  delicate silver earrings with semi-precious stones, lots of bead necklaces with charms and soft wooly bedsocks.  Arriving in the spring will be a whole host of lovely summery cotton tunics, cotton scarves/sarongs and more tunics in linen.     We visited factories, ensuring that our purchases were ethically produced; were taught how to block print fabrics; watched rugs being made;  learned about natural dying processes; ate the most delicious food and didn’t get ill 🙂  We were guests at a traditional Indian wedding, watched the polo and toured the ancient spice market in Delhi. We stayed in very diverse accommodation,IMG_3034 from beautiful hotels to small family guesthouses and every day was an adventure.    I’m already wondering how soon I can justify going back – there is so much more to discover!!
