Welcome to the Border Tart’s 2024 subscription boxes
Many of you will know how much I enjoy seeking out fabrics from faraway places and supporting other makers. And you’ll be aware I can’t resist a blue...
For lovers of interesting cloth and hand dyed threads I am offering little boxes through your letterbox every other month in 2024.
Of course there is an blues and indigos box, but there’s a rich spicy shades one too. I aim to bring you inspiring content, and an opportunity to experiment with textiles you may not otherwise have found.
Colour themes and contents
Moody Blues - expect some peacock shades as well as indigos and blues
Spice Box - expect terracotta, ginger, earthy and spicy, plus the occasional red
You will receive a carefully selected fabric piece, nominally 50cm x 50cm from somewhere in the world, and a skein of hand dyed or specialist thread. Dyers may be from anywhere, may even be me. Fabrics will be a mix of patterns and solids. The letterbox-friendly box will also contain a little vintage fabric, or buttons, or contrasting thread or other treat.
Handwoven fabrics can vary dramatically in width. I will always try to compensate for narrow width by sending a longer length. Many fabrics show minor colour/print variation, or slubs or other perceived errors. I encourage you to embrace these as evidence of the maker's hand.
How it works
You choose your colour theme.
And choose either 6 months (3 boxes) or a year (6 boxes).
Be sure to select the correct delivery destination - either UK or Rest of World.
Boxes are despatched at the start of every second month, commencing in February 2024.
Boxes for any given month/colour choice are similar but not necessarily identical in content.
