Scarlet Jones

My good friend took me and the girls on a whirlwind tour of several inner Eastern op shops and a few treasures. This shop is one I have wanted to visit for a very long time. Scarlet Jones. Think French furniture, linen bed sheets, beautiful clothing, fine jewellery and leather bags.

My photo has distorted the fine, muted tones of Digard’s work. The one below is a more realistic representation of her colour ways. But I wanted you to see the detail.

One of the stand out finds of the day was work by French artist Sophie Digard. She hand dyes all her wool and makes the most exquisite scarves and jewellery pieces by crocheting and piecing them together.

Fabric Fetish

I have had such a great time today in the big city discovering old and new fabric stores. I have been on the hunt for great linen and cotton. A visit to Patchwork on Central Park   proved to be such an inspiration. They have a strong range of Japanese and English fabrics and a superb selection of linen. I could have bought many things but tried to restrain myself to the much needed items to complete the current exhibition project.

I have been trying to pop by and read the blog from the Patchwork team and noticed that  Scarlet Jones is connected to them, as the other beautiful home and fashion store. It too has some dreamy pieces.

And on my walking journey today I noticed this shop – Quince. I am always drawn to hand printed fabric so I was keen to read more about the artist online. It is interesting the path that life takes people before they realise their passion and focus. I wonder what I will be when I grow up?
