Flintymcginty children’s clothes are designed with joyful prints and a rainbow of colours for boys and girls. They’re made from supersoft luxury eco fabrics… the ultimate comfort for your child. They are fun to wear and built to last, lovingly designed and made in Somerset.

All Flintymcginty’s clothes are made from carefully sourced organic textiles. Organic cotton jerseys are carefully sourced from ethical and sustainable suppliers. The hemp clothes are made from hemp that uses up to 80% less water than production of non-organic cotton.

The idea is to make these garments last… organic stretch jersey to grow with your child, high strength eco fibres to withstand wear and tear at every turn.

Inspired by nature, each design that Ladytree makes flows with the textures and colours of the earth. With every piece, they hope to create timeless jewellery that embodies a connection to mother nature and can be worn for years to come.

Handcrafted from their studio in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside, they use both traditional and modern techniques in our work. Wherever possible they use Eco Sterling Silver in their designs – Eco Sterling Silver means that there has been no mining or human exploitation involved in sourcing the Silver. Together with ethically sourced gemstones and hand-stamped packaging using recycled materials, they have developed a brand that is as environmentally friendly as possible.

Hannah will be showcasing their jewellery at the event and giving talks on the sourcing of their beautiful gemstones and eco silver.

Raggedy clothes are designed and created by Hayley who mixes her passion to dress differently with her beliefs in reusing societies cast offs. She designs garments that can be enjoyed as art pieces as well as being worn with pride.

Raggedy’s clothes are made intuitively, sculpted together from a combination of stitch work, patchwork, ruffles, sculptural shapes and plenty of layers, they are often off centered and deliberately asymmetrical.

Raggedy is about inspiring people to explore new and different ways of celebrating art and fashion while supporting our fragile environment. Her clients are fun, creative and individual, which still now continues to be sewn into the very fibre of Raggedy’s heart.
