A little bit crafty

If you’re feeling the need to get back to nature and connect with all things earthy and grounded, then you’re not alone. 

We’ve noticed a distinct return to pieces that feel handcrafted, tactile, unique and artisanal in Javelin’s collections this year. 

New ranges in our stores this week speak to this theme and include accessories and homewares rich in texture and individuality.

This is a trend that is really building momentum this season and looks set to evolve through autumn and into 2023. 

Embroidery and crochet are some of the traditional decorative techniques being adopted by designers keen to show us that cookie-cutter style just doesn’t - well - cut it - at the moment.

When it comes to jewellery and bags look out for eclectic beading, and mixed, brightly coloured threads. Patchwork, embellished leather and repurposed fabrics also take to the craft stage.

Hand-thrown pottery and rustic terracotta are the go-to materials for vases and planters.

For tableware and crockery we’re loving hand-blown glassware with all its imperfections. And one of our favourite collections is the nature-inspired Bordallo crockery - with a vintage feel and a textural, rustic finish that ensures it is right on trend.

To get the look, invest in one or two items then mix and match them with pieces you already have, or rummage in antique or vintage shops for unique treasures.

And our final top tip? Try raiding your Grandma’s cupboards if you’re in need of inspiration!
