Still, these are fantastic, right? I would go as far as to say they are the nicest blankets I have ever seen. They weren't inexpensive - the blankets ranged from £124 to £286 and the cushions were £70 to £130. But honestly, I think this is a fair price to pay as the quality was incredible. They are 100% wool and are woven in a small traditional mill in Wales. I have never in my life even wanted a floor cushion - until now.
Again, you need to email Eleanor if you want to make a purchase, or if you are near London, you can see her work at the Midcentury Modern Fair on 15th November 2009 (well worth the visit) and also at the Cockpit Arts Open Studios in Deptford on 4th - 6th December 2009.
So, I know all you blog readers are well versed in Etsy, Folksy and Big Cartel, but have you ever contacted a designer directly to make a purchase if they didn't have an online shop? I said this last week too, but it is so quick and easy to set one up (or at least an interim solution) that I'm not sure why every designer does not have one, unless they have enough wholesale orders to make a living - especially as it's pretty much impossible to get any press if your work isn't available for sale easily. I'm not a designer, so maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I think that if you are a designer who exhibits at craft fairs, then it can't hurt to offer your work online too?
