With an eclectic combination of trusted designers and fresh new faces at the Handmade Market in June, we are excited about the range of textile products that will be on show next month. Here, we have selected a pick of textiles and homewares to whet your appetite and help you start on your shopping list.

With their striking, quirky and fun, but always stylish designs, Ink & Weave will once more be available at the Market with a beautiful selection of 100% linen tea towels, screen printed by hand with eco friendly inks.


Laughing Bird is also known for its beautiful linens. With a range that includes tea towels, aprons and bags, The fabric is printed with exclusive designs inspired by nature with flowers, plants and animals a regular feature of the meticulous illustrations.


Crayon Chick will be making its Handmade debut in June. Combing “old crafts with new tricks”, this range of homewares and accessories is sure to delight you. With a nod to the old art of crochet, many of the crayon chick pieces bring a modern edge to a retro art and we can’t wait to see the full range.
