This beautiful and unique collection of fabrics and furniture has been inspired by nature’s canvas and crafted using age old traditions. All the materials used within this collection have been sustainably sourced from around the British Isles.
The collection includes; daybeds, headboards, cushions, throws, fabrics, lampshades, footstools and shelving. All the pieces are created using raw, natural materials such as British linens and tweed from Donegal; the perfect counterbalance to the modern ‘throwaway’ culture.
Charlotte England spent time travelling around the globe, during the early part of her career, which enabled her to try her hand at a wide variety of alternative arts and crafts.
These included studying pottery in Japan with a renowned sensei; traditional paper-making in the Japanese mountains; basket weaving among the Tepuis in the Amazonian basin and life-drawing in Miami.
These wide ranges of inspiring experiences shaped her personal style and design objectives and led her to create Mkira. As part of the creative process, Charlotte teamed up with a number of small, authentic, family-run businesses all using traditional methods to expertly craft these beautiful enduring pieces.
Charlotte England, Creator of Mkira, comments: “At Mkira, we design and create homeware with love and care. We are proud to bring you a range of products with permanence, items that are designed and built to last.”
