Bunting is something that we love to make and use to decorate our shop and we use it to show our customers all kinds of gorgeous colour combinations. This week got to thinking about weddings, garden parties, rustic outdoor events and food fairs in our beautiful Dorset countryside and what could look any more rural than hessian?
This idea is so simple to do that we thought we’d share it with you. We cut out some triangles of hessian and zig-zagged the edges to stop the fabric from fraying and then we simply spaced out the flags and stitched them onto a few metres of our cluny lace. Of course, you can always upcycle some old coffee sacks if you can lay your hands on them but if not, pop in and check out our different grades of hessian as they also look brilliant as trestle tablecloths finished with pure white cotton runners. In our beautiful listed mill building, we think hessian works very well with the prominent industrial elements on show.
