I found out about The Wise House since they carry the Lilly Loray line of kitchen textiles that I was involved in the design work for, and then I fell in love with their site and their products. They have a number of items they have custom made for their store that are simple and stylish that I find infinitely appealing, including lavender heart trios, funky peg bags, and superduper door stops, and my favorite –the hipster handbag! Love!
The Wise House has three styles of the reversible bag, the Hampton Hipster Handbag for the stylish woman on the go, the Midi Hipster and the Girl’s Hipster. The fabrics are sourced in the UK and the bags are made by hand by a local seamstress, Carla, who formerly owned a shop on Portobello Road. There are also future plans for seasonal collection using corduroy, wool and tartan.
The Wise House is a shop selling cheerful, original and mostly practical things for people and their homes. It is owned and run by Lucy, who is passionate about finding, designing and making things that are not found on every street (or web) corner.
The Wise House launched this ‘Bless This Home’ limited edition unframed Giclée art print, taken from an original pen and ink drawing by Kent artist Lydia Bevan, who made the design exclusively for The Wise House. Each art print is one of just 220 prints, hand signed and numbered by the artist.
