Sophie Cuvelier grew up surrounded by artists so
from an early age it was obvious to her that she
was going to create beautiful things. Today she
works in her kitchen surrounded by scattered
mountains of hand dyed paper. Like a master
confectioner she mixes colours and sorts shapes
and sizes to make her gorgeous garlands. Perfect
to hang in a playroom or to create a festive
atmosphere at parties, however you use them
they’re bound to add brightness and cheer.
Garlands, various shapes and colours 3m reel £21, 5m reel £35, 10m £70
Fluttering to Selvedge this season are these
pretty butterfly hair slides. These simple but
pleasing accessories are made by French
company Tout Silo. Designer Laurence
Vermeulen has been described as “an embroi
dery and Liberty print addict”. Fortunately we
share her passion for these pretty prints and
think these hand made hair slides would
make a lovely Easter gift, there are seven
designs to choose from.
