Loving this "All about Christmas" Small brands collaboration between Peggy Juche and Maru Alverez.
Its Christmas pure and simple,
a little reminder that it´s not about how much...
but about the Magic.
Recently I stumbled across Jeanette Farrier, a costume designer who whilst traveling in India at the end of the 1990s, discovered the magical textiles that the women of West Bengal create from recycled cotton saris.
The Wonderful Ketiketa always going from strength to strength, as seen in this fabulous Autumn Winter 2017 Collection.
I had the pleasure of meeting Alia and some of her team when they came to Palazzo Bambini in Vienna in 2015 ...
presenting not only their wonderful bedding home-ware but also showing us how each and every item is hand-printed.
Ketiketa (girl & boy in Nepali) was founded in 2007. Ketiketa works with natural fabrics and materials in small-scale manufacturing promoting traditional techniques, working with carvers, independent printers, and small sewing workshops as well as socially motivated industries. Ensuring high standards of quality together with ethical production principles. something we at Small Talk do our very utmost to support and promote.
