Shop Talk: Buta & Buti

I first came across Buta & Buti at work, searching for textile designers. I definitely spent a bit too much time wandering their website but it’d be hard not to. Buta & Buti aim to bring beautiful home-made and hand crafted items back into homes, working with craftsmen and women across the world. What with all the mass-produced textiles and furnishings around how nice to own something that is unique, and actually not perfect – hand-made means human error, and as Buta & Buti say ‘the beauty is in the imperfection. These are the signs that mean your cushion or quilt hasn’t been made by a machine.’ Quite right too! They produce absolutely gorgeous prints, showcased on cute pajamas, cushions and linens. My favourite is the bedspread below (a girl can never have too many shoes or bedspreads). Check out more of their conscientious and beautiful products over at their website.

  1. The bedspread is beautiful and so is the bed itself. Thanks for the textiles tip! I will definitely spend way too much time as well browsing. I love companies that not only offer great product lines, but play a role in making the world a better place.

  2. Ditto above. Thanks so much!

  3. Browsing the web in search of unknown to wider public designers and boutiques is my favourite pastime too. And like you I could have a new bedspread everyday!
