What we do
An inspiration for parties & play, we pride ourselves on making activities & decorations you'll love to give, & children will love to receive.
Nostalgic, chic, simple & inherently satisfying, crafts draw upon a palette of raw materials from lolly sticks to craft matchboxes, & from twine to felt. Wave goodbye to all that plastic!
Crafts are carefully designed to spark learning & play in a fun & imaginative way. A world of make believe is ready to be uncovered.
Activities are perfect for party bags, stocking fillers, wedding day activities, travelling & rainy days.
Cotton Twist, a.k.a Anne-Clare & Alexis, is the meeting of two spookily similar minds. I think it's fair to say we're never quite satisfied with the mantra of 'making life easy for oneself'.
Why buy a cake when you could stay up until all hours making one? Why purchase a birthday card when you could rummage through the craft drawer and create one.? Why just read inspiring blogs when you could write your own?
True to form then, we've channelled our 'excess energy' into a raft of products and activities to spark creativity in the sphere of craft and celebrations.
Anne-Clare has spent time in a monster sized corporate and a small entrepreneurial business. With the best of both worlds behind her, it was time to pair up with Alexis & put her creativity into motion.
After a career in retail and selling other peoples' products, it was finally time for Alexis to create her own. Cotton Twist brings together the art school background and a love of making.
