Josh (having listened to my rants on long journey’s far too often!) suggested that I talk about some of our values and philosophy behind our choices.

So I did…

Time for a Video Interlude…

I’ve caught a few great video’s on the internet recently which I wanted to share with you all.

1. Glorious Colour – this is an ancient interview with the knitting and colour guru Kaffe Fasset. I might not love all his designs but I can certainly see the man’s genius and incredible artistic eye. He talks about colour and some of his creative processes in this video and I found it gently inspiring.

2. The Story of Stuff – I should have seen this video years ago. They’ve even done a number of follow up videos since which I am working my way through. But I think it is a really interesting clear explanation of our problems with stuff (and some of my own problems with stuff). There are follow up videos on the site as well which are well worth a look!

3. This Old Thing – This is a new TV show with Dawn O’Porter (I love her in so many ways!) which is about how to shop vintage. I’m not hugely into fashion but I’m really enjoying the section of the show where her experts upcycling and remake older vintage pieces. Some useful tips and inspirational ideas there.
