Cloth House

Team radici are a little prone to distraction and one of our favorite haunts when we ought to be working hard is the Cloth House at 47 Berwick Street, in London
A veritable treasure trove of ethically sourced, natural linens, tickings and tweeds with a myriad bits n bobs to embellish... all beautifully laid out - someone always gets their hand smacked for touching the window display...

Radici's Big Christmas Boutique

A table of delights ...

...and our Christmas de-lights too

And so it was Christmas Boutique Time and all was warm and fuzzy at the Radici Christmas Stand!
A big thank you to all you lovely souls who popped in to have a chat and a few macaroons...
We had such fun making Radici something a little different to its everyday self ... a wee Christmas makeover you might say...

Roscoe of course got a little beyond it and had to be banned from the petit fois but besides that a wonderful time was had by all!

Chew on this

Chew is rather a gem of an online magazine (not just because we've been featured pg 15 if you're nosey) but because its truly one of the most original achey-cool mags we've come across - and how novel is this... you can get to choose your favorite front page...

Guardian Angel

Radici has made it into that paragon of trend setting and style the Guardian for their annual Chrissy Feature... see if you can recognise our little gem... clue its Swiss and it has a white cross ...not only that but there are loads of other wonderful goodies from talented designers and great companies to drool over...
well worth a lookie...
