Bohemian, with a thoroughly modern nod to the 1970’s. Cocoon&me is one of my favourite finds of 2017. When I first stumbled on Paula’s cleverly designed bags and super cute plant holders I succumbed to two pieces straight away; a graduated dip-dyed denim handbag complete with fringing and a more neutral roomy shopper. People comment whenever I carry them and I’m pretty sure more obsessional buys will happen once the website launches. Ethical - vegan and infinitely stylish, this modern day hippie is totally smitten.

We LOVE these adorable cocoon shaped herb planters! Our lovely friend Paula has recently launched textile business Cocoon&me, where she hand makes crocheted planters amongst other goodies. Perfect for hanging in the kitchen where you can grab your favorite herbs for cooking, they also have a pot inside them which stores water to keep your herbs nice & fresh. The cocoons themselves are made of Jute, a natural plant fibre.

I first saw Paula’s work in a local café, and immediately had to find out who had created the amazing array of macramé plant holders and accessories.
Paula’s work has a simplicity and beauty that is timeless. It has been a joy watching her expend and grow her business and see more and more of her beautiful pieces evolve from dream state to reality.
We immediately were drawn to catch up with Paula, and feature her as one of our “Artists in Focus”. She typifies so many ambitions to turn a passion into a thriving business.
Yeah!!! Go Paula!!!

A really enjoyable WI Social event arranged for us by Paula at Al Campo.
We had opted for the basic macrame pot holder workshop. With Paula’s tuition, guidance and handy notes all of us felt a real sense of achievement at the end of the evening when we went away with our completed pot holders.
Thanks to Paula and her great organisation, we will definitely look to schedule in another workshop soon.
