What’s coming…

August is when we begin to get the deliveries for our Autumn and Winter Stock.
Its quite nice to receive the packages and to rediscover what you selected 5-6 months ago.
Once again we have some stunning pieces arriving from SKFK, our beautiful ethical fashion brand based in northern Spain. They’ll be on the rails over the next few weeks.

SKFK are an extremely socially and environmentally friendly label, using re-purposed cotton, biodegradable fabrics such as Lyocell and Tencel (made from plant-based fibres), water-based & non-toxic dyes, recyclable packaging and responsible manufacturing & production practices. But not only are they truly wholesome (!), they are stylish, original and beautiful in what they offer.

The Lore Shirt pictured above in yellow is just a classic piece, easy to wear, smart yet casual, vibrant edgy and elegant all at the same time. The Biska Sweatshirt is a must-have, it 100% recycled fabric (cotton & polyester mix) that will wear well and wash brilliantly. Unusual yet classic and simply styled. See the full (& more being added over the next weeks) SKFK collection here.
Native Youth is also a winner in the Autumn & Winter as they create such affordable and essential outfits that make life easy. We have some strong blues, pinks and clarets coming through this year. First through the door we have:

These chunky cord blue Gloria Jacket and JumpsuitAdele Knit also in blue is great for an everyday warm pullover.
People Tree essentials are coming – we thought that actually, in Falmouth it is hard to get those lovely essentials like leggings, knickers, vest top and under-layers. So, this autumn we have People Tree’s organic cotton essentials range – keep your eyes out on our instagram for when they arrive, we know you’ll love them.

Without wishing away the glorious summer, we thought we’d let you know we do have some delights in-store for the Autumn and Winter that are inevitably upon us!

Have fun in the sun.

Meet The Wedgies at blink

We’ve got good oldies and brilliant newbies coming to Falmouth in our Doorstop range this Summer. If you haven’t discovered the humorous Meet The Wedgies Doorstop range you won’t be disappointed, they really have a character that will make everyone smile.
And if you have never stopped to take a proper look and read the character profile’s of each door-stop – then do pop in to blink and have a browse.

New on the scene we have Ellton, Victoria Bather & Ramsey Chef.
Meet ElltonWith his piano key hat, star spangled shades and jazzy pink outfit you might be thinking to yourself ‘Can He Wedge My Door Tonight?’ and the answer is yes; any day, any night. Ellton might look novel, but he’s one of the most professional in the business so won’t go breaking your heart, he can doorstop with the best of them.

Meet Victoria: Alberts other half is quite the catch. She too upholds victorian levels of decorum whilst propping your door open. On her holidays she likes nothing more than a good dose of Punch & Judy.  This respectable bather harks back to a time of good, clean, reserved fun at the seaside. There’s no falling out of that costume, so rest assured there will be no embarrassing moments when she’s holding your door open.

Meet Ramsey: He might look cheery, but a feistier tempered member of the Wedgie family you will fail to meet. When he’s not shouting obscenities, throwing pans on the floor, or strangling his sous-chef, he likes nothing more than propping your door open and having some therapist recommended, ‘Ramsey’ time.

In keeping with our attempt to work with responsible and sustainable businesses, we love Wedgie’s fair and responsible trade initiatives. Wedgie is proud to be part of an incentive scheme based in Sri Lanka aimed at the empowerment of men and women based in rural areas of the country.

Unpainted doorstops are delivered directly to employees’ houses, along with paints, brushes and tools. Once painted and completed, the Wedgies are paid for on collection. This allows people in rural communities the convenience of earning an income whilst going about their daily routines

Each Wedgie is hand-painted and handcrafted out of quality Alstonia wood. The paint used is a durable matte paint and is incredibly scratch resistant – these Wedgies are made to last. 

Please note: The hand painted nature of these pieces means that some slight variation in colour, design and form is to be expected. Size: (L) 21.5cm X (W) 4cm

Also in the range and in-stock at blink, we have Freeda, Salty Steve, Major Dave, Captain Cod, Hock, and Wonder Woman. You can view the range and buy online here.
