THE URBAN CRAFT STARS
FLOCK & ROCK AT
The ‘Nu-Craft’ movement hits
The craft look is definitely back in fashion and in the current credit crunch many consumers are moving from mass-produced and ikea to a locally created and hand-made aesthetic when it comes to interiors and original gift items.
The Urban Craft Stars will be ‘popping up’ for a limited period only (till 31st August) but all the designers are also available through online craft hub etsy - where they met and the idea was first seeded by organiser and littlechook founder Karin Duguid - or through their own websites.
Everything from furniture recycled from old tube maps to organic printed kid’s tee shirts, funky hand-knitted scarves, photography and pretty leather purses will be available to buy at competitive prices.
Carnaby Street is best known for swinging sixties fashion but Kingly Court just off the main thoroughfare has been cultivating smaller labels and vintage boutiques for over 10 years and now hosts some of the best original design talent in London.
