KuSan

KuSan

KuSan has long been an autumn winter style staple at Herald & Heart. This fun, ethical and Eco-conscious brand began in 2000, after falling in love with the striking and colourful styles of knitwear worn by the people of Nepal.

Starting by sourcing the finest wool from New Zealand and handcrafting their products in Nepal (their original inspiration for KuSan) they produce a fantastic high quality range of hats and accessories.

KuSan adheres to their own philosophy  by working in honest and ethical manners in all aspects of business. Particularly with the factory in Nepal and the community which surrounds it; KuSan contributes to a variety of community initiatives in the Kathmandu Valley. KuSan is an advocate in tackling its global footprint as well as philanthropy- by using sea shipping opposed to air freight and by giving an annual contribution to Carbon Footprint. The label gives its consumers the assurance that its products, the means by which they are produced and exported have a great respect for the people and the planet as a whole.

Just some reasons why we love KuSan other than their stand alone products!

Lovesmith

Lovesmith UK is our new obsession, gorgeous silk and the finest wool scarves emblazoned with in-house designed graphics.

The brand was created by Mark Goodhall and Leanda Bowden-Smith who both worked in design previously; informing their knowledge on colour, design and fashion. Theses three interests and uniquely based skill sets allow for Lovesmith to fill a niche gap in the market of not just printed scarves but printed scarves which have strong printed graphic with a clever use of colour and composition to make them exciting.  Goodhall and Bowden-Smith draw on their travels to inform Lovesmith’s designs each season.

Whether it be California dreaming or longing for our capital London the collection of Lovesmith scarves we have in our little Rye High St shop are sure to hit the spot… P.S.- They also make great Christmas gifts!
