I was overjoyed to be asked to make some soft furnishings for the new cafe in the Great Cornish Food Store, next to Waitrose in Truro. This store is totally dedicated to Cornish producers, and is run along the same ethos as my own shop, Winifred and Mabel. The brief was to suggest some coastal fabrics, and to make cushions suspended from scaffold poles, which also had to be removable!

 

Great Cornish Food Store Truro

Our beautiful, independent grocery store, with its own butcher, fishmonger and chef-led café, deli, and takeaway.

Filled with exceptional food and drink from Cornwall and co-located with Waitrose in Truro, it’s a food retail-first for Cornwall and Britain.
