Green is the colour

We love the versatility of this year’s top trending colour – green.  Go dark and sultry with deep bottle green tones or totally tropical with palm greens. Mint green is making a splash in interiors this year – bright, fresh and uplifting. And while blue is often considered to be a cold colour, it’s transformed with a touch of green – we are particularly partial to teal-green. Is it a blue or a green? The jury’s out on that one!

We are busy making new products for spring and sourcing new fabrics too. We’ll let you know which fairs, markets and events we’ll be attending this year and we are also looking into selling online – by popular request! 

KCS Christmas Fair

Handmade ceramics

Just a quick post to invite you to a very special Christmas Fair on Saturday 30 November at Kings College School in Wimbledon. It really is a wonderful festive event and the perfect chance to do all your Christmas shopping in one place.  We will be taking a stall and selling our new selection of handmade zipper bags and accessories plus some gorgeous orange and cinnamon candles and handmade ceramics.  Hope to see you there!

New products coming soon!

Exciting times ahead for Turtle & Teal.  We are expanding our range and our reach with some gorgeous new products, a fabulous new logo and a brand new website to showcase everything we make, curate and sell.

Our mission is to select and create beautiful products which people really want to buy and keep or gift to someone special. It is also important to us that we choose products which are, where possible, kind to the environment and to the people who make them.

Gorgeous glassware, ceramics, sea grass baskets and original gifts are just some of the new products we will be launching soon. And we all know how difficult it is to find stylish yet practical gifts for men.  So we have also sourced the perfect presents for the males in your life. All will be revealed very soon!

Watch this space for more details.
