Black Creators We're Loving
Our favourite floral genius. Hazel is a London based floral artist and teacher. She describes her work as a ‘love letter to nature’ and we couldn’t agree more. Her incredible creations have not only taken our breath away but have also piqued the interest of Channel 4, Space NK, Amazon Fashion and Acadia all of which have used her talent to transform spaces.
The lovely Hazel also publishes a monthly newsletter featuring styling ideas, discoveries in fashion, art and interiors - so you can try your own hand at some of these floral creations.Tabara
One of our good friends here at Daisy, the very talented Tabara! Tabara launched her online boutique in 2017 offering baskets and other unique woven products designed by herself and her sister. All of La Basketry’s products are handwoven by a group of female artists in Senegal, her brand is an amazing celebration of Senegalese craftsmanship.
Since the launch of La Basketry, Tabara has published a stylish guide book to basket making, featuring 16 projects you can try yourself, go on… get those creative juices flowing! Tabara also offers online workshops so you can perfect the art of basket weaving from your living room.
Liha Beauty is one of our recent discoveries and we’re completely obsessed! Liha is a beauty brand described as a “mixture of natural African roots and a quintessentially British attitude”. Co-founders, Abi and Liha, took inspiration from the Nigerian tradition of making beautifying oils and soaps and lotions from nuts, tree bark and plants.
Not only is all their skincare organic and vegan, their packaging is also made from 100% recycled materials, making Liha a sustainable beauty brand which of course we love! Through their products Abi and Liha are hoping to spread well-ness, slow living and self-care. We. Are. Hooked.
If you’re anything like us you’re probably obsessed with homeware, especially now we’re spending a lot more time at home. QÄSA QÄSA is an ethical homeware and gifts brand perfect for those who want a more sustainable living. Each item comes with its own special story and is handcrafted by a skilled artisan in East Africa.
Their products range from utensils and textiles made from cotton and silk, to basket-ware and glass storage jars made from repurposed wine bottles. Inspired by their own heritage, Naeema and Aniqah founded QÄSA QÄSA back in 2015 and have since made it their mission to reveal the inspiring stories behind every product and its maker on their website. Each piece is totally unique and is sure to be the talking point of any home.
