Hello there !
It's been a long while since I last wrote. How have you been doing?
We've been pretty caught up with launching lots of beautiful new floor lamps, New Basics cushions- Limited edition and in fabulous new colours - and we brought home a little puppy ( not such a little one anymore, check our insta feed @olie_living_lighting to see tons of pictures of her, I may have been spamming a bit there ). We also did a couple of amazing shows, travelled a little with them too - something I rarely do. We went to Chennai for the By Hand from the Heart market, a lovely maker's show at a beautiful venue.
Then we did another show in Chennai - this time invited by the India International Handwoven Fair. This one was extra exciting, it was an export fair - something very new for us, and we met lots of makers, weavers and buyers ! While we were at the fair, we got awarded 1st Place for our display and our stall ! Pretty grand :)
That's me, enjoying the feeling of a plaque in my hands ;)
Post Chennai, we headed to Mumbai for the Lil Flea ! Though the market didn't go as hoped, we loved the city and absolutely enjoyed meeting all the folks who stopped by our stall !
Our latest bit of excitement however is that Olie has been featured by the famous International décor blog, Design*Sponge as One of Ten Indian Textile brands to watch for ! Completely out of the blue, so it had me staring at the screen with an open mouth. But this bit of good news has been a real great start to the week.

And on that happy note - Im going to thank you once again for being around, being you and helping us keep dreaming big !
Lots of love , and have a great week !
