Oriel Davies T-shirts!

Published on Wednesday 6th September 2023 at 2:20 PM

Over the winter we were wearing branded Oriel Davies sweatshirts made from organic cotton. It meant that we were able to keep our thermostat just a little bit lower over the winter.

When the season changed it was too hot to wear sweatshirts but we had so many nice comments, that we decided to partner up with our friends at Community Clothing to get some summer work wear.

Patrick Grant, Founder of Community Clothing, (who you’ll know from The Great British Sewing Bee) said,

"We’re very proud of the clothes we make. We design every aspect of them with the utmost care and we make them from the finest quality natural materials in the very best British factories….Buying from us helps to support skilled jobs and the continuation of a proud tradition of textile making in communities right across the UK."

We’ve also teamed up once again with local screen printers Flood Print to brand them. Established in 2013, Flood was born out of two brothers passion for screen printing and love of T-shirt designs. With humble beginnings, Tudor and Morgan started a printing business and rented a small unit in Newtown. Since then they have been continuously growing and improving their prcoesses, passing the benefits on to customers. In fact, there's not much they don't know about T-shirt printing!

So if you’re looking for ethical clothing, made in the UK Community Clothing is a great place to start. We hope the T-Shirts will last a long time and continue to look good.

NEW in the cafe: Organic Vanilla Ice Cream

Published on Tuesday 4th July 2023 at 3:08 PM

We've recently been sourcing a local supplier for organic ice cream and we're so pleased to be stocking Woodlands Ice Cream of Erbistock. As you know we love focussing on individual things so we were knocked out by their Vanilla Pod flavour. Perfect on its own or with a strong espresso. Spoonfuls of luscious, smooth perfection, lovingly crafted on their organic dairy farm in North Wales.

Come and try one soon!
