folklore

always interesting to find a new shop that not only cares about design and practical uses, but cares about ethical issues.  folklore donates 15% of its profit to a chosen not for profit organisation each year, this years being shanti microfinance which supports entrepreneurship and sustainability in some of India’s poorest slums and villages.

Folklore curates mindful design for home and life. they source a selection of goods that are created with care and made to last. their range includes homewares, furniture, lighting, art and lifestyle goods.

In folklore, cornflowers were worn by young men in love; if the flower faded too quickly, it was taken as a sign that the man’s love was not returned.  i love the paper – like quality of cornflowers – its as though they have been made of tissue paper.  we always see blue cornflowers, but they come in lots of shades of pink and purples.
