Back to Basics - Decorate with Hessian this Christmas

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Christmas is all about glitter and sparkle but I love going back to basics with more rustic decoration and accessories. I am not saying a little bling doesn't go amiss but there is a real cathartic feeling about using earthy traditional materials. Hessian is a fabric full of history, it has been produced in India and Pakistan for hundreds of years. In Europe it was and is still used as a shipping material for coffee as well as serving many other functions such as being used to back carpeting. In recent years we are seeing an explosion of hessian home furnishings especially in this festive season. So why not get back to basics and decorate with hessian this Christmas? Cushions
Cushions are the perfect accessory for your home any time of year. I would normally tell you to look for luxury tactile fabrics but I think these hessian cushions are full of character and they make you think of the true meaning of Christmas with these vintage style designs.

Do you have a relative who is grumpy and displays their inner Scrooge rather than being full of Christmas cheer? Then this will be the perfect present to turn their frown upside down.

Wrapping
I think there is nothing more elegant than brown paper and natural materials. When it comes to wrapping there is something definitely to be said by less is more. From gift bags to ribbon to gift tags add some rustic charm to your wrapping this year.

Flora
One of the flowers we decorate our home in this Christmas is the Poinsettia. This little plant is presented in a little hessian pouch.

Hessian decorations displayed against the rich deep green shades of a Christmas tree looks incredibly striking.
