new spring summer collection from little green radicals

We are proud to announce Little Green Radicals new spring/summer collection! Josie has done it again! (Josie is LGR’s designer) The theme we believe is ‘Aesop’s fables, which is about the fable of the tortoise and the hare. We again love the very colourful and quirky graphics used in this collection, almost, well radical (or rad to the cool kids). Speaking of cool kids, there’s no doubt that your little radicals will look super cute and colourful in this range. We recommend you take a peek at the blue bay fisherman jacket (as shown in the image above) and for the girls the rose pink fisherman jacket (or should it be fisherwoman?)

This new range goes up to ages 7-8 if you were wondering, so thanks for taking the time to look at our new range that Little Green Radicals have supplied us, you can see the Little Green Radical’s Spring Collection and many other cool products that care for the environment and ethics at arteideas.co.uk.

Extra Large Kiko Frames Are Back In Stock!

Extra Large Kiko Frames

So we have got our hands on some more Extra Large Kiko Frames! We also have them in a selection of sizes from Portrait – 5″ x 7″ (medium) Kiko Frames, and 8″ x 10″ (large) Kiko Frames. These are by far one of the best ethically sourced Eco Gifts that you can go for, especially if you are going for a rustic, vintage aesthetic.

These frames are very versatile, they are designed so that you can place pieces of your memories or nostalgia in any form that you might have, be it photos, pieces of fabric, pressed flowers, anything you can fit and deserves to be displayed and that is personal to you,  your family and your home.  The frame also allows you to present anything you have on both sides on the glass so it is possible to hang these frames freely from your ceiling. We personally like them wall mounted inside of hallways or entryway that have a rustic or industrial feel, we highly recommend these vintage coat racks, which tie in nicely with the character and shabby chic design you might be going for with these glass frames.

Nkuku supply Arte Ideas with these and many other ethically sourced, fair-trade products. Their furniture and homewares have been loved and lived in by many people, we are glad they we have been restocked, so don’t wait for too long, they might get snapped up again!
