Dark days are ahead as winter sets in. But the fast approaching festive season is the perfect excuse to brighten up your home.
Colourful fairy lights and giant lampshades are the order of the day as an easy, but effective way of bringing a splash of colour to your home.
Cable and Cotton design and sell wonderful fairy lights in thousands of different colours and the good thing is, you can mix and match.
The cotton fairy lights are hand-made by skilled craftswomen in Thailand and by buying the lights, you are helping support an entire community of women in a remote southern region of the country.
Cable and Cotton was founded in 2009 and its bright impressive colours have soon won an army of fans. The beauty of the online shop is that you can either play it safe and choose from a range of different brightly coloured lights, including the Mexican set pictured, which come in strings of 20, 35 or 50 lights or if you know what you want, you can choose your own mixture of shades and create a unique set of lights.
And as well as the fairy lights, Cotton and Cable produce huge ball lights which can be used for table lamps or for hanging from the ceiling – whatever you choose, it will be colourful and classy!
