Designing with plants

Our Botanical event has been a great success. We invited Suffolk-based Swedish Landscape and Garden designer Mia Witham to share her knowledge and experience and give free garden design advice to our Vanil customers. We are celebrating all things botanical in our shop in Woodbridge and online.  Mandy x

One of my favourite discoveries of this year is Irish Brand Arran St East ceramics. I met the team at Tent a london trade fair and fell instantly in love with the shapes and colours inspired by the Dublin fruit and vegetable markets. 

Glazed in colours inspired by our vibrant home, the Dublin Fruit and Vegetable Market, our signature range, The Pots, is made up of hand-thrown stoneware mugs, cups and jugs in clean lines and simple shapes, built and tested to enhance the experiences of eating and drinking.

Designed in two complementary shapes, inward and outward sloping, The Pots are made to keep your tea warm, and let your coffee cool. With strong lines and crisp handles, we aim to bring clean, architectural lines to a traditional craft to produce functional objects that can be used every day in the home.

Choose from cabbage, potato, parsnip, lemon, pomegranate and pink grapefruit, to bring a splash of Dublin’s colourful heart to your home.

We love the simple packaging design in black and white typography and the use of straw for protection. Now available in our Woodbridge shop we will be adding online soon.
