Bringing It All Back Home
Following a journey through Morocco in the seventies, inspired by the richness of artisan skills and local materials and traditions, we opened a large shop in Sheffield called Bringing It All Back Home full of the clothes, jewellery, furniture, fabrics and the wonderful things we found on our travels to India, Afghanistan and beyond. We even had a whole food cafe, heady times!
In the late eighties we packed it all into storage as we developed a new business, the Natural Bed Company, but we continued travelling and collecting.

We never lost our sense of wonder at the things people made with their hands, items of great beauty that breathe life and vitality into the clean lines of our modern lifestyles. We’re delighted to look again with fresh eyes at our original inspiration and have a new dedicated website and new showroom for this collection.
So welcome to these vintage textiles, old carved wooden statues, ornate Indian mirrors, Indian miniatures and folk art paintings, Afghan tent hangings, Kutch embroideries and things impossible to categorise.
We also have a growing collection of photographs taken by Peter on his travels in India and Tibet.
