Spring is finally on its way bringing new signs of life, a burst of energy and optimism. Finally, light and a sense of renewal after a long winter.
March is the gear change we have been waiting for, the Spring vernal equinox arrives on 20th March, and a week later 27th we have Mother’s Day. This year we’re focusing on the unique and divine aspects of being a mother, the unconditional love we receive, the nurturance, wisdom, and comfort.
Now, more than ever, we want to prioritise and support mother earth and the many ways she holds and sustains us all. At Rouge we take great care to research and select specialist homeware brands with timeless designs and high-quality production. Buying in this way, disrupts the destructive throw-away culture we live in and support a more sustainable future.
Rouge was established in 2005 importing vintage Chinese furniture, sometimes up to 100 years old. Each piece is lovingly restored in northern China before coming to the UK and starting its second life. These magical pieces are a testament to the craftsmanship that made them and a reminder that quality is often an investment that lasts for generations. We take great pride in working with ethical and sustainable businesses like specialist textiles producer Lapuan Kankurit. This fourth-generation Finnish family business “stands against nature-consuming, short-lived cheap production”. We also stock a bespoke range of skincare products from English brand, Harvest. Their ethos being “we only use 100% pure ingredients with powerful properties to take care of your skin”
If you’re planning to celebrate the mother figure in your life this Spring, why not invest in something timeless they can enjoy for years. Have a look at our latest range of Japanese tableware in this refined flower motif. Or make a fresh pot of tea for your mama using this striking range of modern teapots and hand-crafted teacups. For self-care take a look at our beautiful range of Harvest soaps, creams and toners, to compliment add in scrub mitts or towels from Finnish brand, Lapuan Kankurit.
Take time this March to welcome in the light and drop into a sense of gratitude for the mother energy in your life.
