Here at the Seasalt design studio we absolutely love potato printing. If you look carefully at the graphics on our website you’ll probably spot a few potato prints decorating the pages.

Christmas Stocking have been hung over fireplaces for centuries. The tradition is thought to have been started by St Nicholas, the saint of Christmas. He wanted to give some money to the three daughters of a familly who had fallen on hard times. On Christmas Eve, he spotted their stockings drying by the fireplace, popped gold coins in, and the tradition began!
We thought we would show you an easy way to bring a bit of magic to your stockings this year, and what could be better than a stocking you have sewn yourself!

Our lovely shop manager at Guernsey brought these fantastic fluffy creations to our attention and we could resist sharing them!
Ally Leray, one of our customers of the Guernsey store has been buying our Fluffy socks for an unsual and crafty reason; she transforms one sock into three different sized piggies complete with googly eyes and cute curly tail and all to raise money for Cancer Research. We love these cute creations, and its pretty great to see some of our Seasalt products being used to raise money for such a great cause!
If you love these cute creations as much as we do you can adopt your own in return for a donation to Guernsey Cancer Research.
The window team visited local car-boot sales, auctions and salvage yards to find lovely vintage bikes for July’s windows. Most were in quite a state but once they’d been cleaned up and the frames wrapped in polka dot fabric, they looked very smart indeed. Read the rest of this entry »
