In the chic mid-winter














































The temperatures might have plummeted but a striking three-strong throw collection, available exclusively at ethical retailer Artisan Homeware, will bring a touch of Iberian sunshine to British homes.
 
The Alex Collection from textile designer Anna-Lisa Smith might have been designed and manufactured in the hills of West Yorkshire, but the inspiration behind this distinctive design lies in Europe’s most western edge.
 
Designer Anna-Lisa Smith said: “The Alex Collection was based on some tiles I saw in Portugal. Not traditional Portuguese tiles, this was in Cascais – a little town on the coast close to Lisbon that is quite extraordinary – very ornamental and decorative, and amongst all the traditional, elaborate decoration were these very simple, modern tiles whose design was very different from everything else around them.
 
“It was the lines and the colours of these tiles that were the starting point of the Alex collection.”
 
Supporting this great design is a top-quality manufacturing process. Each of the blankets is made from the finest merino lambswool yarn, which has been sourced from sustainable suppliers, and lovingly woven within 50 miles of Anna-Lisa’s studio.

Quality abounds

Kate Nowakowski, founder of Artisan Homeware, said: “I am proud to be able to work with talented craftspeople.
 
“Anna-Lisa’s textiles are simple yet striking, and she has an absolute commitment to the look, feel and intrinsic quality of the cloth itself.

“The feel of her blankets is extraordinary, and is the result of years of work refining the crucial finishing process by which the cloth, stiff and dusty from the loom, is washed and stretched by hand to create the wonderful suppleness and softness of the final pieces.
 
“Her simple clean lines and pure colours are strongly reminiscent of the best of Mid-Century Modern design, and have a similar timelessness. Her work is designed for longevity, to be purchased as investment pieces that will impart warmth, comfort and contemporary style to the home for many years to come.”
 
The Alex Blankets are available in three colours, Sea Holly Blue, Silver and Mint. They measure 200cm x 140cm and are priced at £225. 

They are available from artisanhomeware.co.uk

Luxury that lasts from Artisan Homeware














































If there is one interior trend here to stay, it’s sustainability.
 
This is why Kate Nowakowski, founder of premium ethical homeware retailer Artisan Homeware, created the ‘Traditional Boleslawiec’ stoneware collection - kitchenware that looks back to the roots of the eponymous Polish town’s folk-art traditions of ceramic design.

From shapely teapots in bold block prints to generously deep baking dishes that are real investment pieces, this heritage design collection shines a spotlight on the town’s proud history of handmade stoneware designed to last a lifetime.

Kate said: “Artisan Homeware is the antitheses of disposable homeware. 

"We work alongside creators who are as passionate about long-lasting quality as us - like Ceramika Artystyczna, a 126-year old pottery co-operative based in Boleslawiec, Poland." 

“The Traditional Boleslawiec range brings heritage skills into contemporary interiors without compromising sustainability. Although it might be tempting to leave pieces this stunning on display, don’t. These were designed to be used -  beautiful, functional homewares that are built to last.”

Ceramika Artystyczna uses the vitrified white clay found regionally, which boasts a mineral content ideal for stoneware manufacture. The artisan production processes combine the expertise of generations of skilled ceramicists and the result is stoneware resistant to chips, cracks and colour-fading – with products safe to use in the oven, dishwasher and microwave for years to come.
 
Here Kate picks her favourite pieces from the full collection, which can be viewed and downloaded here.
