In my last post I showed you some of my favourite ethical, slow fashion labels releasing beautiful new collections for the Southern Hemisphere spring/ summer.

If your abode also needs a little spring refresh, here are my picks for sustainable and ethical homewares - I hope you love these as much as I do!

With backgrounds in graphic design, photography and fashion, Rick and Annette Carter combine their love of design with traditional artisan techniques.

From hand loomed cushions and wool throws, to embroidery hand stitched in India and woven bowls from South Africa, these guys currently work with four collectives to employ more than 30 women. And each item is hand signed by the woman who made it. A great touch!
