This week for my 'shops i love' page, I bring you Bohemia. An award- winning lifestyle boutique selling bohemian clothing, accessories, bath and beauty products, gorgeous home furnishings, stationery, babywear, children's clothing, toys and gifts. Bohemia opened their first lifestyle store in 2006 in their home city of Edinburgh in Scotland. They source products that are exquisitely decorated or beautifully simple. Only one rule applies; they must love it!
"Dedicated to a 'Life in Colour' we collaborate with artisans around the globe to design and create unique and beautiful collections of fashion and home accessories. With a philosophy rooted in fair and ethical trading our focus is on working with highly skilled craftsmen and women using age old, traditional techniques to produce a range of contemporary goods which are relevant to a discerning and socially aware consumer. From Morocco, where with have worked for many years with amazing leather artisans producing our world famous leather pouffes, babouche slippers and French inspired handwoven shopping baskets, to India where we work with hand block printers in a small community on the outskirts of Jaipur creating fabulous block print scarves and home accessories. Our studio is bursting with ideas and a passion for seeing traditional artisanal skills and the communities they support survive and flourish into the future. "
