Kopḗ London: Luxurious Hand Crafted Scarves!

Today I want to introduce you to hand crafted luxurious scarves by Kopḗ London

Kopḗ is a brand born out of love for fine craft traditions of the world and is the brain child of Divya Lahoria, fashion and textile designer, based out of London. Kopḗ comes from the Greek word, ‘Perikopḗ’, meaning a snippet from a sacred writing. 

Finest of materials have been used and careful details have been added to each  product. I love the luxurious cashmere ombre scarves, they are delightfully soft and warm to touch, available in bright colour combinations.

Kopḗ  welcomes artist collaborations and this painting above is a result of one such fine collaboration called The Paint Brush. Find out more about this here.

Beautiful and rich shibori scarves in silk mesmerize the senses and are available in many colour combinations.  Buy Kopḗ  products online here-

Here is what Divya has to say about her brand- "Kopḗ collections encapsulate our values, aesthetics and conversations with a global community of makers. Each piece by Kopḗ is from a larger material that passes through the lives and hands of many craftspeople and makers who have given their time and skills to make these magnificent pieces that we can love and care for.
Kopḗ is not defined by an age group but by joy, confidence, style, elegance and our love for colour."

Day trip from London to Brighton, UK

We went on a day trip to Brighton recently and what a day it was, cold, grey and windy! Brighton beach however was still as pretty, husband and I had a great time.

 The Brighton beach is a pebble beach, a first of its kind for me and the colours were fantastic. More seagulls on the beach than people, it was beautiful!

There are some crazy rides at the Brighton pier which we didn't try, perhaps next time when family visits. Lunch was at the Regency Restaurant, not the best fish and chips in town I am told but it is quite an institution in itself so we had to eat there. The portions we huge and prices reasonable :)
I also spotted a cute little shop called People Tree which supports sustainable and fair trade fashion.
We took the train to Brighton and came back around 5 in the evening, it was a day well spent!
