This winter season, we’ve gone BIG! Our new wool mix scarves are big and chunky. Perfect for keeping out those chilly winds. You can choose between a Grey, Blue or Green oversized scarf. They are all made with 100% merino wool which is soft and warm.
In addition, each scarf has hints of a different colour woven in, for that added sense of volume and texture. Check out the images below. For example, the grey version has hints of cream and pink. The green has a bit of red and blue and so on.
Drape it, loop it, wrap it; big scarves can actually be very versatile. You can be creative with how you wear yours. How WOULD you wear yours? What colour would work well with you winter wardrobe? Let us know!

We’ve got a brand new accessory for you this season. The new Ankara snood scarf combines a funky African print fabric on one side and a soft fleece on the other. Who says winter has to be filled with boring block colours. This new scarf will inject the much needed colour into the dreary winter months and the soft fleece will keep you nice and warm at the same time.
You can wear it in many ways; on the fleece side, the fabric side, as one loop, as two loops. Under your coat or jacket or above it. You choose your own style!

I created the Megasnap clutch to be a huge statement piece. That one accessory that will always be a talking point no matter what you wear. Whether it is to finish off your formal outfit or LBD or to add glamour to a casual ensemble, this is definitely the piece for you.
It is made in a Nigerian fabric known as ‘Aso-oke’ which is a loom woven textile similar in texture and weight to denim or canvas. This particular version is an old-school vintage which is partly woven with lurex which incorporates a glittering metallic gold thread. This version is also quite special as the style is perforated and beyond the visible perforations is a layer of deep aubergine satin fabric. Satin, Aso-oke, Cotton; many layers one clutch!
It is lined internally with a green and black Ankara print cotton fabric for that little bit of extra fun. It has several layers of padding to give it stability and to protect its contents. It is quite spacious and will fit a phone, money, keys, make-up, camera and a lot more. It has a handy strap making it easy to carry and has a small internal pocket.

We have a brand new selection of Bee Bags in stock, just in time for the summer, lovely weather and sunshine days.
The Bee bag is so called because its great for buzzing around. For shopping, going to the park, books and magazines or to swap your trainers when you get to work (yes, we all do it!). Anything really, you make it what you want it to be. The wide straps make it a comfortable to carry on the shoulder.
Choose between Ankara print or batik versions. Muted or colourful? What’s your flavour?
Do you ever feel like you are being watched wherever you go. This tends to be the feeling in modern cities. There seems to be surveillance cameras everywhere you go, purportedly for our safety. Hmm.
As Rockwell sang I always feel like somebody’s watching me. Interestingly, everyone automatically thinks the track is by Michael Jackson and I just found out that this is because he he did feature as guest vocals. Nothing like a bit of pop trivia to start the week! Anyway, it is a great flashback from the 80’s. Enjoy!
If you are in London this weekend do drop by at the Africa Centre Summer Festival. There will be music, performances, textile workshops, food and children’s activities.
There will also be a Market place where you will be able to browse and buy Urbanknit goodies! (Just look for the Vou Brown section)
See you on Saturday!
