Check out these cool brands at Spring Fair 2013

CarrieMe are exhibiting Hall 19, stand A17 at Spring Fair and showing some of our exciting new collections at the UK's largest gift fair.  Response has been great so far with a steady stream of new stockists and re-orders from our existing 100+ stockists.

On our lunchbreak we did a quick whizz around the halls and picked out some favourite cool brands.

First up is ECHO, an American based brand with vibrant patterns in a diverse colour palette, a welcome change to the S/S13 season after all the monotone black, grey and browns we have been wearing throughout winter. ‘Missoni’ style patterns, abstract patterns, tribal patterns, and digital print patterns feature through the collection of fashion, (women and men’s) accessories, bags, beachwear, home and decorative products. I particularly liked the silk scarves, and kaftans.

Kazuri & Zsiska are Fair Trade jewellery brands. Zsiska is made in Thailand with colourful resin beads, whilst Kazuri is all about beautiful ceramic beads, handmade in Kenya so every jewellery piece is unique. I particularly liked the ‘Neutrals collection’ in cafe Latte, Gold, Mink, Nougat and white mother-of-pearl colours. These shimmery shades fit in perfectly for S/S13’s Metallic trend showcased on London’s Catwalk. Socially responsible, Kazuri was founded to create employment for struggling single mothers back in 1975.

Cheeky Chics filled with character, Cheeky Chics are a fun, quirky British brand designing practical home products. Eco-friendly, their products are created from reconditioned oak wine and whiskey barrels to produce tables, chairs, garden furniture and chicken coops!  The creme egg table was very eye catching, perfect for Easter parties and chocolate lovers like me!
