Cottage in the Hills
They are about inspiring you to create the home you dream of. Your home, your sanctuary from all the hustle and bustle, stresses and strains of your everyday, busy life. The place where you have all your favourite things. The place where you relax and unwind. The place where you create and share memories with family and friends. A spell of frequent house moves made Tess Heslop, the founder of 'Cottage in the Hills', realise the importance of the familiar, treasured things that surround you and make your house a home; those special pieces that make a place so much more than simple bricks and mortar. Whether she lived in a city, town or village, dressing her home with a modern country feel allowed her to create a sanctuary that she could really call home. The place where her husband, their son, and dogs, and all their friends share precious times together its the backdrop to their life and inspired her to create 'Cottage in the Hills'. 'Cottage in the Hills' offers a range of beautiful and practical homewares. Perfect for dressing your home or for giving as gifts to friends and family. They are based in the Malvern Hills, deep in the beautiful countryside of Worcestershire. The colours of the countryside with the ever changing seasons have provided constant inspiration for their ranges. So welcome to the 'Cottage in the Hills', make yourself at home, and enjoy browsing.

King of Cotton
Established in 1995 in the UK. The origin of Re di Cotone, the Italian version of the business, has been in existence since 1880, and through a long line of family ties, it was brought to the UK with the main aim of supplying the UK's finest hotels with superior quality linens. Over the years they were asked by guests staying at these top hotels to sell their products directly to them, which led them to creating this website in December 2003. Since then there has been no looking back, the website is used by many hoteliers and private customers alike and loved for its unbeatable wholesale prices and superior hotel quality products. They pride themselves in having the highest industry standards certificate ISO 9001 for continuous efforts to improve on customer services and company efficiency.
Little Green Radicals
Started in 2005 with a passion for fairtrade and a quirky sense of humour. While doing one of the many cold wet market days selling organic and fairtrade T-shirts, their founder, Nick, came up with six humourous slogans for kids' T-shirts including Stop the Wailing and Wind Farm. Not long after their launch, Little Green Radicals was in a select group of brands to be first in the Uk to get fairtrade certification for cotton. And, of course, they were and always have been organic too. Their farmers, based in India, get a guaranteed price for their cotton, and they dont use nasty pesticides. The factories they work with look after their employees, who get fair wages, maternity leave, and many of the other things you would expect from decent factories. But, of course, you have to get everything to work, and thats where Bonnie, their production co-ordinator and longest serving employee, came in. A few years and some very cold warehouses on (some people call them offices), and once the slogan ideas had culminated in the fish collection (the consequence of 3 days sanding the floor in the lounge). It included the slightly edgy Never Mind the Pollocks, and Nick decided it was time to get a full time designer, and along came Josie. The range and the world soon looked very different. Instead of just asking how, people started exclaiming wow. With a good dollop of help from Jan, our sales director, suddenly they had hundreds of stockists all over the world, started to win awards and then they added organic skincare too. And the plans dont stop there. The belief has never dimmed and the mission to make beautiful things the right way still makes them want to jump the hurdles to come.
Since 1986 they have been providing families all over the world with colourful, quality clothing for children at very affordable prices. The Name It designs are created by happy and caring people who are inspired by children. Their children's clothing is both a self-assured and fashionable choice. After more than 25 years on the market, they know and understand children across religious and cultural boundaries, and their core values originate from children's fantastic, loving and bountiful nature: sustainability, friendship, creativity, wellbeing and fitness & animal welfare. They want to be the worlds most colourful denim brand for kids, and their selection is broad and covers all the fashion needs of kids from newborns to tweens. They dress kids from head to toe, and always with a strong focus on two core areas outerwear and denim. Whatever the style, they have it. Colourful, classic, trendy and cool for everyday use and for party time. But the most important feature of their designs is that they are safe to wear as well as socially and environmentally responsible. Right now, more than 20 % of our clothing is organic cotton, and their ambitions don't stop there. Organic cotton means environmentally friendly cotton which is grown without the use of pesticides and fertilizers. This is for the sake of farmers, textile workers, the environment and of course for the sake of the children who will wear the clothes. They believe that organic is the future and therefore believe that by requesting organic cotton, they help create a larger supply of it. All their suppliers meet BESTSELLER's own chemical restrictions, which contain equally strict requirements as other standards. A selection of their basic products also meets the European standard Ecolabel, complying with requirements in terms of the entire process, including printing, dyes, sewing cotton etc; the Ecolabel stipulates requirements for the emission of pesticide residues and the use of chemicals throughout production.
Their mission is to be the leading brand for products that are stylish, functional and of exceptional quality, sourced in an ethical and sustainable manner. Fairness, diversity and transparency are at the core of what they do. North South began with the mission of changing the fashion industry for good. Over time they've developed into what you see today, and they're constantly improving and innovating their products to suit the needs of customers. Understanding that quality, style and price come first, they're showing that it is possible to be ethical and sustainable whilst achieving these three crucial criteria. All the materials they use, such as organic cotton and recycled polyester, are sustainably and ethically sourced. They're also dedicated to using as much renewable energy as possible through their supply chain to reduce their CO2 footprint. Furthermore, all products are produced in Fairwear accredited factories, so you know that the people who made your clothes enjoy strong working rights and safe conditions.
