Shopper’s Diary: Blodwen in Wales

Julie Carlson October 14, 2010

Founded by Denise Lewis (a brand expert) and Caryl Terlezki (an interior architect), Blodwen is an online shop "committed to the preservation and revival of traditional rural skills and the promotion of local crafts." Working with Welsh artisans, Blodwen offers a collection of homewares with a rustic look: hand-turned bowls and spoons made from locally grown sycamore, beech, and ash; woven willow baskets; earthenware from Ewenny Pottery (founded in 1610 and the oldest pottery in Wales), and traditional Welsh blankets woven from the wool of rare sheep. Go to Blodwen to see the offerings.
