Felted chestnut hulls: a soapy autumn craft!
Making wet felted autumn treasures is a fun little craft, it's seasonal and requires soap, and who doesn't want to stimulate hand washing these days?! We love making Lara's felted acorns and decided it was time to add some wet felted chestnut hulls to our collection too! The wool for the hull is felted around ...

For a few days we were staying in one of the characteristic local houses called 'trulli' -- very typical of the region and so, so pretty! One morning, Casper and Ava ...

5 Questions with Anna from MamaOwl
MamaOwl is an absolute treasure trove of the most beautiful natural fibres. When we think of wool, we think of MamaOwl. It might seem hard to believe, but there was a time, not that long ago, when buying wool thermals in London was a challenge. When Danish mother, Anna, couldn't find them for her own ...

Little Pushkin
This summer was wonderful, and we had some great times hanging out with Esther and her family (sadly it feels already sooo far away now).  First in the country, then in the city – I think our kids are now so used to each other that they just all bundle together and get on with ...

And just like that I'm searching around the house for all the wool layers, scarves & hats. It's November already! Winter is coming! I recently picked up some cosy organic ...

New collection at Macarons
The new Macarons collection is so amazing! I am loving all the colours and textures... and sweet photos (those little models --how cute are they?). The weather is getting crisp and colder here in London, and it's time for warm winter woollens. (Sigh...) Thank goodness the Macarons collection is so cute, it made it less ...

A child in sheep’s clothing

Welcome to our newest #babyccinokidsboutiques on the block! Eco conscious clothing and decor for adventurous kids … Bella + Phoenix! Brand @bella_and_phoenix is created by Debbie Turrell a Sussex based graphic designer/illustrator and mum. From a young age both her children showed an avid interest in the natural world. From rock pooling to finding mini beasties in the back garden, everything would be inspected (not dissected!) and then avidly talked about. Next would come the barrage of questions! It inspired her to come up with the 'Tee of Knowledge’. The clothing is organized into cute themes and children will definitely feel inspired when they are dressed and ready for an afternoon spent amongst nature! Being passionate about ethical production, all the clothing is handprinted to order in Bella and Phoenix Sussex studio on organic cottons, using eco friendly inks. The packaging is recycled and 100% biodegradable too. We hope your little explorers will be inspired!

Today we had the very best sunny day in London town! We visited our amazing #babyccinoboutiques @vildhouseoflittle for a studio tour and sneak peek at their newest items! We enjoyed @somersethouse and the @londondesignbiennale including the inspiring free exhibit, Forest For Change, directed by @esdevlin. We then went to meet some beautiful elephants in @coventgardenldn at @petershamnurseries bringing attention to the @coexistencecampaign. Needless to say, it was a full day and @laraoflondon got the babe back in time for a nap. Now tell us, what new energy has the summer sun given you? #babyccinokids #babyccinotravels
