Sustainable Products at the Royal Botanical Gardens
We had a great show at Handmade at Kew this year. With an extra addition to the team, baby Esme was there to lend a helping hand!
We were showcasing our new range of hand illustrated lotus flower kimonos which are made from lotus flower stems. The lotus flower itself is a popular plant that’s picked and used for adornment purposes leaving the stems behind as waste.
These natural stems produce a soft, silky thread making a delicate but sustainable fabric.
Lotus flower is soft, breathable and wrinkle resistant. These properties make it easy to wear, allowing us to produce soft to the touch, beautiful products with less waste.
The great benefits have made this environmentally friendly fabric a popular choice for our hand illustrated kimonos and scarves.

We wanted to say a huge thank you to all those who supported us at Handmade at Kew and online. We hope you enjoy your unique products.
We look forward to showcasing next year. For more information please visit https://www.handmadeinbritain.co.uk/events/handmade-at-kew-2/
We even managed to take some snaps of the beautiful gardens. It’s a great day out for all…
