First Post!! Sort of....

Posted by

Hello! Welcome to our words! Now, blogging is pretty new territory to us - between running the shop, website and Amazon store, finding the time for more tasks can be tricky, so you will have to bear with us while we iron out the details and better plan what our content is going to be. For a little while posted content may be a little sporadic!

Our main aim at present will be to keep you up to date with what is going on in our shops - to share general information, new stock, events and previews of what's coming. Plus of course we welcome any suggestions and feedback with regards to what you would like to see on the website itself. 

Now, as the seasons changing what's to come? Earlier in the year, the catwalks were exitedly trumpeting the 80's Redux as the Summers big fashion trend, but here at Rowfers, we found things took a decidedly more bohemian path.

From tie-dye vests, low-slung yoga/harem pants, loose flowing dresses and Nepalese Baja's (always a firm festival season essential with both men and women alike) to glitter, flower headbands and faux nose rings, we have been selling all things hippy to a relaxed and happy crowd. And while the Flower Child look may drift in and out of mainstream fashions orbit every 15-20 years or so, in the world of those who lean towards counter culture as a way of life, it remains one of the most enduring and key looks within the community.

Don't get us wrong - the 80's glam trends are still definitely having their day - our mermaid scale jackets, holographic leggings and wide belts haven't been hanging around for long, but the emphasis has firmly been on the free spirited side, and it's trailing on into Autumn as people start to look towards chillier days and Halloween and Bonfire night. 

Tartan scarves remain a firm favourite - as do our beautiful printed crinkle fabric wide scarves - which while warm, are beautifully soft and light. Plus they go equally well with cozy winter jackets and everyday outfits.

This seasons turn also sees the addition of some gorgeous fleece lined jackets, striped cotton trousers (these are a bit more masculine than some of our current stock of ethnic britches), over the head toggle neck nepalese hoodies, the return of the patchwork dungarees and our usual selection of beanies, logger hats, fingerless gloves and mittens.

We have also had a lot of great new crafts and jewellery items in recently - which anyone following our Instagram or Facebook accounts will have seen already. The majority of these will only be available  in store, so it's well worth a visit when you are next in town!

I think that's about it for now - lots to do elsewhere,... so tarrah a bit!
