Holme Valley Hygge
Ever wondered what hygge is? ………
Meet Grace and Huw, their story began whilst on a dream holiday in Canada. They fell in love with the natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies – the sights, the smells and the outdoor culture. Believing that smell can transport you to
a particular memory or experience – a certain time and place, the Holme Valley Hygge seed was planted.
Pronounced “hoo-ga,” Hygge is a Danish concept; it cannot be translated to one single word but encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. How Hygge is found, is personal to everyone. For one person it may be relaxing on the sofa in your PJs in front of the fire with a warm cup of tea and your favourite book. For someone else it may be peacefully swinging in a hammock in an alpine forest beside a lake, listening to the morning chorus. There is no right or wrong way to find your hygge moment.
Grace and Huw are offering a variety of ways to help you find Hygge with their candles, small gifts and wax melts in a variety of scents including Christmas scents and more unusual ones such as twilight bonfire.

Rustic wooden creations….
Logimalz was established by Jack, when he was 12 years old, now just 14! At the age of 8 he was introduced to creating “animals” from pieces of wood and made a giraffe whilst visiting a National Trust property.
18 months ago, whilst moving some wood from one area of the house to another, he found his old giraffe. From here, Logimalz was created (……..animals made out of logs!) His next animal project was a pig, featured across.
Last year, Jack worked alongside his friend and co-worker Lucy, but unfortunately, they are not able to “work” together at these times.
Jack no longer just creates animals, he branched out (ignore the pun!) into the Christmas market last year. You may spot many of his reindeers around Upperthong, where they sold out at the Upperthong Christmas Fayre last year!.
Jack can be contacted by messaging him on the social media accounts below and follow him for his latest creations!
Jack supports a charity that is close to his heart, a place he visited in Easter 2017, The Rainbow Centre, Sri Lanka. It is a UK Registered Charity, founded in 2005, that provides daily education, food, welfare, medical treatment and loving support to children living in south western Sri Lanka. Its key aim is to enable children to obtain an education and break the cycle of poverty.
Jack has chosen to give 25% of his profits from Logimalz sales to this amazing charity. The corona virus pandemic has hit here hard, so he is more determined than ever to help them.
Made in Upperthong
A splash of colour? Or something to snuggle into?
Another seamstress in Upperthong….. but making different products – cushions. Sarah appreciates that there are too many beautiful materials in the world, as a musician, she wanted something to do to fill her time at the moment.
She started her project around 9 weeks ago; she wanted to be creative whilst spending some time with her dad – who taught her how to sew!
The “small project” has grown and she has now made over 100 cushions with lots of very happy customers. Sarah has also recently bought some lovely festive fabrics, so grab yourself a Christmas cushion or two to help decorate your house over the festive season.
