Best of British
There’s plenty to be cheery about here in Britain even if Andy Murray didn’t make it through to the final of Wimbledon! A big ahhh goes out to Andy, but in true British style, we’ve all already moved on to the next big thing.
Now we’re celebrating the fact we’re having one of the best spells of sunny weather going, the Commonwealth Games are coming up and there’s a good chance a Brit will be wearing the yellow jersey in the Tour de France.
Here at Elsie & Fleur we’re all about supporting British designers and makers. All the products we stock are made by micro businesses, run by kitchen table entrepreneurs and mumpreneurs, the economic life blood of Great Britain.
If, like us, you’re feeling patriotic this summer, here are four of the best Union flag products on our virtual shelves. It’s a pretty flag, so please don’t leave us Scotland!
Bring out the bunting
Finished size 3m. £12.95
If you fancy a little CIY (Craft it Yourself) then this British bunting kit made from Dartmoor sheep’s wool might be right up your street party.
Bag some British
A spotty/floral Union flag bag, made by talented sewer Louise Waghorn, priced £15. Larger similar bags also available.
I’m alright Jack!
The bibic bag for life, priced just £5, with the full purchase price going to the children’s charity, designed by Rachel Skeet, who is a former student of Somerset College of Arts and Technology. Not just good for the charity but, also, as a charge for carrier bags comes in in England in September, this will be a very useful addition to your bag collection.
