For the launch of our signature scent, No Chemicals, we hosted an evening for friends and family at our Portobello store. Nicki Leighton-Thomas provided entertainment with her beautiful songs and a new album soon to launch whilst Nama provided raw vegan sushi, nut cheese courgette roll ups and bite size crackers with sun-dried tomatoes and guacamole. Jane Shaw Cunningham was 'on hand' for palm and tea leaf readings and drinks were laid on by The Travelling Gin Company who designed cocktails to specifically incorporate ingredients featured in No Chemicals fragrance. All set against a backdrop of magnificent floral arrangements from local favourites Scarlet & Violet. It was a great success and we'd like to thank everyone involved - for more information about No Chemicals click HERE.
We visited Tessa of Layla's Bakery in the midst of morning rush-hour to talk about pastries, pastries, and even more pastries.
Here at Couverture & The Garbstore, we encounter many artisanal crafts and practices from all around world. However, none seem to have the wide-reaching impact of those from Japan.
In this series, we’re highlighting some of our favourites, starting with our go-to coffee shop: Cable Co.
