We have been busy today creating and trialling a few new products, one being this knitted cosy heat bag. It’s a modern take on the trusted hot water bottle, but instead of boiling the kettle, you can pop an inner bag into the microwave to heat for a few minutes. Perfect for keeping you nice and toasty!
For our first design we chose a nautical inspired blue and cream stripe. But we’ve many more up our sleeves.
What do you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
We are very excited to announce the addition of Stuart Gardiner’s designer homeware products to our range!
Stuart is a very talented graphic designer and art director who chose to use his information design background and applied infographics to homeware textiles, launching his first product in 2009 – a Seasonal Guide tea towel. This is one of our favourite designs and will be available from thecourtyardboutique.co.uk from January.
Other creative designs include the ‘Glove & Cake Single Oven Mitt’. Ladies don’t hate, and they certainly love cake. Check out this bling single oven mitt, with double sided print – ‘Love’ for right handers, ‘Cake’ for left handers!
Having studied at Falmouth College of Arts and now designs his products from his East London studio. The studio prides itself on keeping production UK-based and commits to minimising environmental impact.
