The Souk.uk arts & crafts cooperative was set up in 2019 to help discerning individuals purchase genuine crafts, sustainable clothing and wellbeing natural products from authentic artisans, designers, craftspeople and wellbeing practitioners online.
First to join the cooperative was Anne, founder of The House of Lavene, handloom knitwear studio, who kindly released a collection of her designer knitwear garment’s for exclusive sale in thesouk.uk website shop.
Shortly after the website went live, other creative artists, designers and Wellbeing practitioners started using the website to advertise and sell their unique products and services to a wider audience than they had hitherto been able reach.
Recently, Theresa Sundt, world renown colour therapist and author of several important books on using colour and light at home to aid wellbeing, joined the cooperative.
We are also excited about being joined by Blossom Arnold, a newly emerging model, stylists and graphics designer, who brings with her a completely new approach to sustainable clothing and challenging images on gift cards, wall hangings and accessories.
2021 looks like it’s going to see an huge expansion of Souk partners, many will be advertising and selling their products in the Souk shop and gallery, alongside a new online home machine knitting course, Anne, has designed and Blossom’s, collection of sustainable clothing.
Later in the spring and summer we’re planning to invite other artists, photographers, craftspeople and well-being practitioners, Yoga teachers, Screen printers, Musicians, Enamelers and sustainable fashion suppliers to join the souk.uk partnership.
