Held Together By Thread…
All of the products you’ll find on Ruby Cubes are handmade by myself. I take inspiration from the World around me & translate this into my work. My collections are a mood board of things that inspire me, I hope that in turn, the things I sell will inspire & project creativity onto my customers.
I currently have two main collections:
Function & Form homewares – this is my main collection of goods made for the home & focuses on affordable design that everybody can love & use. These are the pieces that I take to events regularly and are always available in the shop. I am constantly adding to the colours & shapes of this collection so do check back regularly to see what’s new.
Art & Sculpture – this is the experimental section. I am constantly pushing myself as a designer & artist. This collection is made up of pieces that I have made whilst exploring the boundaries of what is possible with the rope. I am currently creating a series of larger baskets that explore a more organic & freeform shape. If you are interested in learning more about this collection or even exhibiting pieces from this collection I would be glad to hear from you.
A note about materials….
I love our planet, so I strive to use natural materials that will not do long lasting damage. I use unbleached rope which is significantly better for the farmers and the environment than bleached varieties. I also work with a new fabric called Piñatex® which is 100% sustainable and cruelty free. The textile paints I work with are also an eco variety that are non toxic and sourced from Cornwall. I work to my own minimum waste policy – one day I hope to be zero waste so I always have this in mind when making business decisions.
