East Anglian Game and Country Fair

8 May

On the weekend of 27th and 28th of April, the East Anglian Game and Country show was held at the Norfolk showground in Norwich.  TweedVixen were delighted to exhibit at the event in the craft & lifestyle marquee  organised by Oakleigh Fairs.

Our stand may have been small but much was packed in to our space and we were very pleased by the reaction to our range.

The Perfect Ethical Dress for Autumn…

22 Oct http://www.tweedvixen.co.uk/nancy-dee-crystal-dress---slate-arrows-126-p.asp

In a world of disposable cheap fashion, the ethics and sustainability of our clothing seem to have been forgotten by many. British fashion brand Nancy Dee are committed to producing stylish and versatile pieces that adhere to these principles.  All their pieces are made in Britain and made from fibers that are extracted from renewable natural sources.  They have also produced the perfect dress for this Autumn season, the Crystal Dress.

This dress is a long T-shirt style dress with long sleeves and is made from super soft organic cotton. It is a great base to achieve different looks with layering.  The RRP for this dress is £65 but for a limited time it is available for £55 with free UK shipping  at www.tweedvixen.co.uk.

Ridley & Dowse Jewelley…

26 Sep

I have a huge love for nature inspired jewellery. Few do it better than Ridley & Dowse aka Vivienne Ridley and Susannah Dowse.  The creative duo combines forces to make beautiful pieces that are also ethical.

“We are designers committed to producing beautiful things at as little cost to human rights and the environment as possible. We believe that the beauty in an object comes in part from how it is made and by whom.

With this in mind we will never send our designs to a faceless factory in a far flung place where we can’t be sure someone isn’t being exploited for our benefit. We will use local businesses with people we know are fairly paid for their work. We won’t be racking up thousands of air miles to get our products to you.

We also try and make our products in the most efficient way we can find to minimise waste, and will source the most responsible materials we can.

If we have a product idea and can’t find a way of realising it in a responsible way, we just won’t make it.” Ridley & Dowse.

They were an obvious choice when I chose to open the TweedVixen Boutique and I was delighted when they agreed to be a part of the tweedvixen project.
