Inspired by the botanical richness of Japan, the ancient art of temari and our favourite neighbourhoods in London, Rika Stein has created three beautiful sets of naturally dyed cotton threads for Loop through her new venture, NONA. We’ve been in love with Rika’s work since her days at Temaricious and we’re over the moon to have these unique threads in the shop.
Oh là là ! A treasure trove of exquisite shawls and scarves from French Designer Sophie Digard has arrived this week.

Claire Wellesley-Smith is an artist, a teacher , a writer and researcher based in West Yorkshire. We have loved Claire’s work for a long time, and we have had some wonderful workshops taught by her at Loop. Her first book Slow Stitch is a beautiful book about the pleasures to be had from slowing down and valuing quality over quantity.
