Knitiffi at Kew

We are really pleased to have been commissioned by Kew Gardens to create tree cosies for their summer festival, Plantasia.

All the cosies are now installed and the festival opens tomorrow.

The festival is an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature’s healing sanctuary and experience the stimulating and transformative power of plants; from barefoot walking trails, to home remedy workshops. See how life-enhancing plants and fungi affect human health in mind, body and soul, then, visit our knitted vine tree and vote for your favourite plant by adding to the vines.
