    Use your loaf!

    Use your loaf!

    Is there anyone left who didn’t have a go at making bread of some kind over lockdown?!

    Many of us have come away simply appreciating the skills of bakers more, but there are also those of us who now can’t resist the smell of a fresh loaf in the oven and the joy of knowing we have baked it ourselves.

    As the UK is gradually emerging from lockdown once more and eating outdoors is becoming the new fine dining, putting together a meal can require a bit more planning and a bit more carrying!

    Our bread wraps are perfect for keeping your freshly baked loaf safe, carrying a family load of sandwiches or wrapping round a bowl of something delicious to keep bugs and picky fingers out. With a wipeable, food safe lining and velcro fastening they are super easy to use and keep clean.

    We know the bread makers amongst you will have your favourite recipes, but we’ve found this selection which has a variety of options…

    Poppy’s bread wrap is often used to protect her sharing bowl of potato salad. The recipe is so secret we couldn’t get it out of her, but here are a few alternatives that look pretty delicious...

    Just Horsin' Around!

    We love our tea towel designs - you seem to love our tea towel designs as well! Poppy has been a very busy (sewing) bee these last few months.  She's designed lots of new gorgeous tea towels including the new 'Pony Club' especially for Anthropology UK. Pony Club tea towel by Poppy Treffry   Ponies and horses aren't the easiest subject to sketch, and this design took Poppy a little while to perfect but we all think she did a pretty good job! [gallery ids="|"] A tea towel design starts with a sketch in one of Poppy's many sketch books, then Poppy will cut the individual pieces from fabric (usually fine, vintage or found pieces she has hidden away in the studio) and then she'll sit at her trusty old Singer sewing machine and freehand machine embroider the pieces to a tea towel-sized piece of cotton.  This will then get sent away to the local screen printing company for them to print.  We think you'll agree this is another pretty, individual design from the brain of Poppy Treffry. To see all of our tea towels, pop along to our website and for our exclusive Anthropologie UK designs check out their website. TTFN, Team Treffry. x

    From stitching box to your letter box

    Ever wondered about the journey our products make before they arrive in our shop or land on your doorstep, lovingly packaged and ready for their new life? Well... They start as big rolls of fabric in the studio. Sarah Pixie cuts the fabric to size and packages it up for our stitchers, while Freya cuts out the little applique pieces to go with it... Fabric rolls in the studio Sarah Pixie cutting the fabric pieces for the stitching box Appliqué pieces Fabric pieces cut and ready to go The full stitching box then heads off to one of our lovely stitchers...
