We are back in the studio after an absolutely fantastic few days in London at the trade show Top Drawer. We are so pleased to say that you will be seeing IzziRainey in lots more wonderful independent shops around the country. We met so many lovely people who were also their exhibiting their products, lots of new stockists and it was also lovely to catch up with people who already stock our products.
The part of Top Drawer we were exhibiting in is called Craft. Craft is full of designers and makers who design and produce their products in UK, like ourselves. There was so many wonderful designers to pick from...but here is a few that we had to share with you.
We just love Gabrielle Vary Knitwear. Gabrielle designs and creates every piece with the help from a small team of knitters who all work on vintage knitting machines using traditional hand crafted techniques. Each piece of knitwear is inspired by memories and nature, living between the beautiful seaside and rugged south downs means Gabrielle is never short of inspiration! We love Gabrielle's use of colour and print amongst her knit, especially in her new range of cardigans>>> http://www.gabriellevary.co.uk
Daniels Bros. hand makes and designs a wonderful range of quirky wooden products in his studio in Sheffield. We thought his wooden jelly fish air plants were so fun and looked fantastic all hanging together. Have a look at Daniels website to see his full range >>> http://www.danielsbros.co.uk
Kina Ceramics had such a wonderful range of contemporary ceramics. Kina, originally from Poland but her studio is now based in Oxford, creates a wide collection of handmade, quirky ceramic products. We fell in love with her succulent and cacti plants with emoji faces on. To see Kina's full range have a look at her website>>>https://www.kinaceramicdesign.com/about
Craft is a showcase of British design and production, so we were so pleased we were a part of it. We will update to you all about our new stockists really soon, we are really excited! Now it is time to get making...
Happy New Year to you all. Sorry we have not written a journal in a while, we got back in the studio after Christmas and we have just been so busy getting ready for Top Drawer and still sending lots of parcels. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year!
We are so excited about 2018 and it all begins this weekend at Craft. Craft is part of the wonderful trade show, Top Drawer.

We are so looking forward to being back there again this year and to hopefully find some more lovely shops to stock our work. We will also be launching some new designs at the show which are now available on the website.

Sevak Zargarian is a ceramic designer maker based in London, UK. Working from his garden studio at home, he has since kept a focus on process, investigating different surface finishes and making techniques, with an aim to create beautiful objects for the home. We love Sevak's work and his use of colour within his pottery. You can see Sevak's work on stand CR721. https://www.sevakzargarian.com
Giannina Capitani LTD was established in 2013. Based in London and from Italian - Scottish ancestry Giannina Capitani is known for juxtaposing bold, colourful, graphic pattern with luxurious tactile knitwear. Using her heritage as a starting point she draws inspiration from Italian design and combines it with Scottish textile tradition. We love Giannina's use of bold colours and contemporary patterns.

Heather McDermott Jewellery specialises in contemporary jewellery made using stainless steel and precious metal. Each piece is made in Scotland and the materials are all sourced from Britain. She takes her inspiration from her island home, the Isle of Skye. Fisherman's nets, stacked creels and weathered buoys scatter the ever-changing shoreline. We love Heather's work, especially these earrings pictured above. Her use of different materials makes her work so interesting and great pieces to wear all the time.
