Exciting happenings just around the corner

26 Dec

I have some very exciting news to share with you about what ‘Rock Ribbons’ has planned for early in the year!

As you know up until now everything in both my Etsy and online store has been designed and handmade by yours truly but in 2013 things will be changing ever so slightly! You’ll still be able to purchase all your ‘Rock Ribbons’ favourites in both online stores. But I’ll be expanding out the brand to include a few of my very favourite finds, that I know you’ll love (as much as I do) from artisan and fine crafts people in Turkey and Morocco.

Those of you that know me personally, know that I have a real passion and  interest in Persian, Moorish and Ottoman art, craft and design. I have been searching tirelessly for the right craftspeople to ethically source and work together with ‘Rock Ribbons’  to showcase their beautiful handmade objects.

From early next year (2013) I will be including two new product lines that are tried and tested during my world travels and in my own home. Beautiful natural and versatile, 100% cotton handwoven pestemal hammam towels which are handwoven and dyed with natural plant dyes and the colourful hand stitched long lasting Moroccan leather pouf/ottoman.

I’m very excited about the craftspeople I’ll be working with and having both these great products in store. The pestemal hammam towels will be available in January 2013. The moroccan leather poufs will be coming early 2013 and I am going to try something very new (for me) called crowd funding. This is where I might need your help (please and thank you), I will be launching a ‘Pozible’ campaign in January in order to create funds to purchase a larger wholesale order of the leather poufs from my trusted agent and skilled artisans contacts in Fez.

I’ll be posting more ‘Pozible’ campaign details closer to the date and over next few weeks and I’ll be explaining to you why I think these two products are so great!
