THE SHELL COLLECTION
The delivery was prompt, carefully packaged... and then the reveal! I’m absolutely thrilled with the pair of cushions. The design is simple and striking and the stitching is of the best quality. The cushions have a lovely ‘ploof’ feel to them too. Beautiful products with ethical standards.
i cant tell you how thrilled i was to receive the Animaux cushions. i love everything about them. …the cream boiled wool, on the front AND on the back, the fat feather cushion, the stunning dirty green full piping and the extraordinary embroidery in all those wonderful colours, they really are an absolute joy.
i want more and i wish everyone could have one:)
Just started this last week and can not wait to see it come to life! Very well done and nicely packaged with all the materials needed.
The most beautifully boxed linens!
Beautiful stitching and colours - a delight to touch and smell - Thank you!
A beautifully worked, generously sized and wonderfully fragrant lavender bag. As the previous reviewer suggested, they make perfect gifts - I was given one a year ago and its scent is still fresh.
Gorgeous blue floral face mask in lovely colors. Very nicely made and lined in a. contrasting dark blue, I have had so many compliments when wearing and have always made sure that I mention where I got it. It is not just a lovely face covering, it is also comfortable, cleverly designed, easy to breathe in and actually very flattering. I am delighted with it.
I ordered the Hollyhocks card for my husbands birthday. He’d wanted to plant some in our garden but had not been able to locate any. The beautiful card more than made up for this. My husband was absolutely thrilled with the exquisite craftsmanship of the card and more than thrilled with the ethos behind it. We shall be definitely using this organisation again. Keep up the good work.
I absolutely adore the pair of embroidered pineapples I recently bought from you. The texture created by the different stitches on the leaves is incredible and highlights the individuality of each cushion. They are unique and will be very treasured by me. They have also been universally admired by friends and family. I can appreciate that they must have taken many hours to complete and being a stitcher myself I am an admirer of the high standard of embroidery.
These face masks are beautiful in so many ways! Beautiful fabric, beautifully made! I’m also pleased that making the masks have given someone something to do when they most needed it. I’m proud of my mask and will tell everyone where it came from! Thank you so much for your time and effort
The cushion is beautifully stitched. The colours are true to the website. It is a unique item. It will be valued for many years. Thank you.
I really love this cushion - lovely fabric and beautiful embroidery - another great piece of work! Thank you
A beautiful, excellently crafted cushion. There is humour in the expression on the lioness' face, and she looks very much like a school teacher demanding you sit down, and relax on this wonderful item.
Thank you very much for the very beautiful and wonderfully easy to use and clean masks,
Beautifully made needle case. Does anyone sew anymore?! This makes a lovely addition to a new or established sewing basket.
