What wouldn’t we give to go back in time, to revisit sweet memories and bask in the golden glow of an era that celebrates beauty and simple pleasures?
French Knot resurrects timeless silhouettes from the 1930s, 50s and 70s, anchoring them in the present moment with their signature, candy-colored shades and joyful celebration of pattern and texture. Tapping into the timeless quality of the English countryside we experience the sense of being rooted in tradition, the comfort of continuity and the sweetness of slowing down.
“What is it about the English countryside — why is the beauty so much more than visual? Why does it touch one so?”
— Dodie Smith (I Capture the Castle)
Imagine strolling along country lanes, spying cloud-like sheep grazing just beyond a split rail fence as the snowflakes begin to fly.
A cup of tea awaits in the cottage just over the hill, smoke spilling from the ivy-covered chimney. Hand embroidered linens and woolens, knit with love, fill the cedar chest. Layers of tradition and a lifetime of memories chase away winter’s chill. Life is unhurried here, intentional, and filled with joy. Delight in handcrafted details: dried chamomile blossoms for tea, cozy mittens with hand embroidered blooms, carefully tended gardens and time, that most precious gift, to spend together.
