We’ve got a brand new Ankara Snood Scarf. This one in a classic blue Ankara print. You get the best of two worlds with a print on one side and a soft navy blue fleece on the other for comfort and warmth. Get winter ready with this versatile scarf.
You can wear it in many ways; on the fleece side, the fabric side, as one loop, as two loops. You choose your own style! There are so many ways to twist and shape it and it looks different every time.
The Teal Bloom Ankara clutch is back in stock for the last time. Made from a lovely abstract floral print from Ghana, this bag is a large statement piece. Would go perfectly with that Little Black Dress or a nice white crisp t-shirt and jeans. Spacious, light, stylish!
After the popularity of the first African print snood, I decided to try it in a different colour combination and I think it works quite well. This version is bolder and brighter for those who want to add colour to their winter outfits. This one is made in a blue and orange Ankara print fabric and combined with a dark blue fleece.
I am thinking of making a third version in a palette of pale greys with a touch of yellow.
Which would you rock?

From today the 5th of October, 2015, you will have to pay 5p for the use of a plastic bag to put your shopping in within the UK. This new law applies to all shops and stores with more than 250 employees. Apparently, over 7 billion plastic bags a year are handed out in stores across the UK.
Plastic bags are not biodegradable and alarmingly can take up to a 1000 years to break down. Yes, that does sound bad. This new charge is the government’s bid to reduce its usage and the negative effects it has on the environment and wildlife.
So quite simply, we think you should get yourself a handy and fun Tommy tote! Yes you can be eco-friendly and stylish at the same time. This multi-purpose bag is spacious, durable and folds into a neat little rectangle for storage. Even apart from the fact that this will save you money and looks cool, it is also much more comfortable to carry on the shoulder due to its wide straps. Where you would have had 3 or 4 shopping bags, you now only have to carry one.
It also doubles up as a beach bag, a weekend bag or anything you want it to be really! It is handmade from a thick woven textile from Nigeria known as Aso-oke. Check out our collection here: www.urbanknit.com/tommy+tote and see which colour combination best suits your personality. You too can say no more plastic bags!
