Photoshoot in Lerryn & The Fowey Hall Hotel

posted on January 6th, 2015 by Laura Ellis

We’re incredibly lucky here at Seasalt to get out and explore different parts of Cornwall for each season’s photoshoots. Part of our SS15 collection took us to Lerryn, a beautiful village situated on the river which you can cross by an Elizabethan bridge or via a set of stepping stones.  Our location shoot also took us to the Fowey Hall Hotel, which is believed to have inspired Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind In The Willows.

We’ve put together a few photos taken whilst on location so you too can get lost in the beauty of our surroundings. Keep an eye out for one of our models taking a little rest by the river.

Seasalt New Year’s Resolutions

posted on December 30th, 2014 by Nikki Phillips

It’s nearly the New Year, a time for resolving to eat less, get more sleep and exercise more. Some of our resolutions are practical (sort out ‘that drawer’ in the kitchen), while others are a bit of a stretch (win the lottery).

Not sure what your 2015 resolution will be? Here’s a selection of our favourites from around the office to give you inspiration.

Happy New Year!

Down a Cornish Lane

posted on September 5th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

Our latest catalogue takes inspiration from Denys Val Baker’s book, Down a Cornish Lane.

Here we take a look down a few narrow byways and find out what might be at the end. After all, you never know what you might find when you go down a Cornish lane…!

Step 6: Lay the top fin onto the body facing in.

Step 7: The tail needs to be rolled and secured with a pin so that it doesn’t get caught when sewing around the body.

Step 8: Lay the body parts on top of each other, right sides facing, and stitch around the sides. Remember to leave a gap so you can turn your fish the right way!

Step 9: Stuff the fish with wadding, hand sew the gap and sew on the eyes.
