New Beginnings

IMG_2074

It is crazy to think that up until this point, we’ve managed to build, launch and run Sage x Clare from our home… A minor miracle if you were to see the size of it! Which is why we’re beyond excited to have just taken over a warehouse in Melbourne… It will be a one-stop showroom, photo studio and storage house for our products. I could squeal, I’m that over the moon!

Today, we’ve been working on the finishing touches after a container of the most wonderful pieces arrived late last week. Here is a little teaser of what will be hitting the website over the next few weeks… With another container arriving shortly, we’ve certainly got plenty to do! Stay tuned xx

As if we hadn’t fallen for India enough, our recent six weeks there just deepened our love for this complex, maddening and inspiring place. I can’t say what it is, but I am addicted. We sadly left Jaipur after spending day in day out with our suppliers and friends, who become somewhat of a second family while we’re away. From our supplier, Bharat, who tells us all our designs are “Marvellous!” (what an underused word that is) to our newly made expat friends in Jaipur, our time in India was incredible.

Of course, in amongst long days working, we found an early morning to do something exhilarating – hot air ballooning over the Amber Fort and surrounds… Exhilarating doesn’t really even do this justice. Magical, astounding, stunning, thrilling – nope words just don’t cut it. In a country of over a billion people, to see India from the air away from the honking horns and hordes of people, is simply unforgettable. We took off near the imposing Amber Fort, before flying over the surrounding Aravalli ranges and villages. This I will certainly never forget! If you ever make it to Jaipur, make sure you do this (details below)…

We’re now in Istanbul on the hunt for kilims, pestemals and other treasures – with a few apple tea and turkish delight breaks along the way. We’ll keep you posted!

Much love xx

After a particularly hellish week involving all nighters, house-painting, my other half ending up in hospital for five days, and moving house (phew I cannot even believe all this happened in one week!), Bali welcomed us with the peace and time out we so desperately needed. More or less collapsing on arrival, after a full night’s sleep we dove into the spiritualism, hedonism, and rejuvenation that this island so wonderfully offers. Returning home only made bearable by the launch of Sage and Clare and that we’ll be returning next year to get hitched! x
