“When looking for bedding for my young son, I wanted something fun, gender neutral and responsible, and found it really hard to get all three. I didn’t want to compromise, so I started Tuck It In.” – Lucy, founder.
Tuck It In creates beautiful handmade bedding for babies and young children, using organic or Global Organic Textile Standard certified fabrics and natural dyes, which give the finished pieces lovely, soft colours that complement one another perfectly. Materials used to make the dyes vary from carrot tops, to pomegranate, to dahlias and even locally sourced walnuts.
Lucy also runs workshops, where you can learn the various methods she uses for Tuck It In, including quilting and patchworking for beginners, and natural dying using food waste that you would find in your own kitchen waste bin. You can find out more about her workshops here.
Furthermore, Tuck It In often offers seasonal products which are well worth looking out for, such as Christmas stockings, and delicately designed and hand printed moon phase calendars.
You can find Lucy at the Frome Independent market, or follow the link to the website where the items can be shipped worldwide.
