Enchanted by a collaboration
Q : What happens when two of your favourite retailers decide to collaborate?

This is not a sponsored post in case you were wondering, this is truly from the heart!
Some of you may already know who I am talking about……it is of course Uniqlo and Merchant and Mills….
Uniqlo are a Japanese company founded in 1949 with a focus on quality and textiles. They make well constructed casual clothes and accessories for men, women and children.
Merchant and Mills based in Rye a beautiful Sussex village. They surely need no introduction on a sewing blog? However just in case they are new to you a brief introduction…
‘Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field are Merchant & Mills. The company was formed in 2010 to elevate sewing to its proper place in the creative world, respecting the craftsmanship it entails. They produce a range of card patterns and really useful kits and in profound contrast to the pretty, flowery image of the average haberdasher, they present superb and unusual sewing of notions in stark, utilitarian packaging.’
The Collaboration; T-shirts, sweatshirts and bags for men and women, designed by merchant and mills and manufactured by Uniqlo.
The result; things I want to buy (lots of them) but they are selling out so fast!
I may have treated myself to a couple of tops….shhhhhhh
