Tessa Sonik’s UP JAPAN

Tessa Sonik’s latest collection is called ‘UP Japan‘, and is defined by everything ‘up’ – UP-cycle, UP-skill and UP-lift.

The range came about after much contemplation on how to work towards zero waste, and how to create new items from existing items. The brand has always been conscious of environmental issues, both economically and socially, so the question became how to create exceptional quality fabrics that didn’t compromise on current fashion trends.

And so UP Japan was born – a range of exclusive and limited edition print and dyed fabrics that meet the philosophy of UP-cycle, UP-skill and UP-lift.

The intricate printed fabrics are 100% polyester with a velvet feel and have a UV print, meaning that the fabric can be used outdoors.  The linens are hand-dyed, giving a natural look with variations in colour and coverage.

Spring is in the air

It might be a few weeks too early to start talking about Spring, but we can’t help ourselves! The days are getting longer, the mornings a little lighter and the first signs of glorious Spring blossoms are on their way.

Not only the time of warmer temperatures, Spring also symbolises rejuvenation and newness, and we love bringing that fresh feeling into our homes.  What better time than Spring to reinvent your interiors?  And it doesn’t have to cost you a bomb either!  There’s nothing like a new coast of paint, a reshuffle of furniture, a new scatter cushion or two, or a stunning new rug to put a spring in your step!
