Charlotte Macey Designer Feature:
About Charlotte Macey:
Charlotte Macey Textiles officially began last year after graduating in textile design a few years before that. Life took me on a round about route to realising I wanted to pursue the design and creation of my own range of homewares. I started out stitching tea towels, and from these humble beginnings my range has grown significantly. I pour love and care into each item I make, finishing each to the highest standard. My fabrics are sourced locally in the Cotswolds, and I hand make each item individually, so no two of my products will be exactly the same!
I find inspirations in the ‘everyday’ and the things around me, from trips to the seaside, to the countryside where I live. I love to stitch the things I see, and designed and developed my range in my little countryside studio, with the help of lots of tea and biscuits!
My best seller and probably my signature piece would be my beach huts range, which includes two tea towels, a tea cosy, and newly added to the range, cotton napkins! I have been making the ‘beach huts’ tea towels since I began Charlotte Macey Textiles, and they have always been a favourite with my customers.
We Make Summer Fair:
At the Summer Fair I will be selling a range of my pretty homewares and gifts. There will be cupcakes, cosies, beach huts, spots, tea cups, beachy stripes, plus a spot of illustration and lavender thrown into the mix… all perfect for summertime!
