Our new collection this month is an ode to the colour blue, capturing the refreshing hues of the sea, the sky and the sardine nets of Concarneau. Les Filets Bleu, a vibrant festival that celebrates the town’s maritime heritage, proved a great source of inspiration for our design team.
Le Festival des Filets Bleus
Our friend, Nigel Legge, down on the Lizard Peninsula, has been collecting traditional Cornish pilchard fishing nets for many years. These nets were once a common sight around our coastal communities, often seen drying on harbour walls and being mended by the locals.
However, these cotton nets fell out of use around 40 years ago, so we’re giving them a new lease of life in our shop windows this month.
If you look closely you might be able to spot some of the original cork floats that are still attached.
