In Playing Outside, find out the story behind Hopscotch, Tug o’ War, and Capture the Flag, all of which will make you want to run outside and return to your childhood. In Party Time, there are fun facts about Pass the Parcel, Blind Man’s Buff, Ring a Ring o’Roses, What’s the Time Mr Wolf? and more, and you can also learn the key ingredients of a great party game, one of which is the importance of getting everyone involved. While Parlour Games can be more sedate, these are excellent for exercising your general knowledge and quick thinking, with favourites such as I Spy and Charades, all profiled here. There is also a detailed section on boardgames, so many of which are still played today, such as Snakes and Ladders, Backgammon and Chinese checkers. You will become a games aficionado with this handy treasure-trove of intriguing facts and stories.
The Colonial (or Optimo) is the original rollable Panama hat. With it's distinct center crease, the Colonial is perfect for travelling as it will withstand being frequently rolled. This classic shaped panama is reminiscent of world leaders and filmstars from the 1920s, which is a testimony to its enduring style.
Renowned for its lightweight and flexible fibres, this hat is handwoven by our skilled fair trade producers from Carludovica Palmata, grown near the coast of Ecuador. The fine llano weave is a tightly woven herringbone weave and is more durable than our brisa weave and it is a fantastic, quality rollable panama hat that is typically sold for hundreds of pounds more.

by Mark and Sally Bailey
In this beautiful book, Mark and Sally Bailey share their passion for the simple and well-made things in life. The look they love is stripped back, focusing on the integrity of the materials and surface quality - perhaps chipped paint showing the layers beneath, combinations of rough textures with clean lines or old materials with stainless steel or concrete. The book begins with the Elements of the Baileys' style. Here they demonstrate key components, including Textures, Storage, Walls & Floors, Lighting and Display. A section on Rooms shows how well the look can work throughout the home, including offices and children's rooms.
