In the second part of my handmade Christmas gift guides I have chosen some lovely pieces from Not on the High Street, one of my favourite online retailers at the moment. They have so many amazing and unusual gift ideas and quite a few eco friendly options too. I have already bought quite a few of my Christmas pressies from NOTHS!
Handmade silver leaf necklace by Sonja Bessant , a self-taught jewellery designer maker from South London who makes high quality, contemporary, handmade jewellery.
Hand knitted hats and gloves by Lowie are a lovely colour that will go with everything with cute heart details and pompoms. Lowie are a fashion brand that focuses on handmade accessories with the aim of creating them as ethically as possible, without jeopardising design. Where possible, they use organic or sustainable raw materials.
Bibico also create some beautiful and ethical hand knitted pieces. These handknitted snowflake print socks are a really cosy treat. They are made from 100% wool under fair trade principles in Nepal.
This Tribal Arrow Head Necklace by Lucie Ellen is handcut from plywood in Lucies Garden Studio in East London. Where ever possible she tries to use reclaimed and eco friendly materials in her designs.
I love siamese cats and this cute bag would definitely be a very welcome Christmas pressy! It is made from boiled wool and unbleached cotton by Sarah Culleton in her home studio in Derbyshire. It is made from boiled wool,unbleached. Her store also features lovely purses and glasses cases which would make lovely stocking fillers.
