Embrace Elegance and Comfort: A Closer Look at Bow & Arrow's Women's Knitwear

Embrace Elegance and Comfort: A Closer Look at Bow & Arrow's Women's Knitwear

In the realm of Winter fashion, few things offer the perfect blend of elegance and comfort quite like a well-crafted jumper, cardigan, or poncho. And when it comes to these timeless pieces, Australian label Bow & Arrow stands out for its commitment to quality, style, and sustainability.

Bow & Arrow's range of women's jumpers, cardigans, and ponchos is a testament to the brand's dedication to providing luxurious garments made from premium natural fabrics at affordable prices. From cozy merino wool to sumptuous cashmere and breathable cotton, each piece is meticulously crafted to offer both style and functionality.

Craftsmanship and Quality
One of the defining features of Bow & Arrow's collection is its exceptional craftsmanship. Each garment is expertly knitted or woven to ensure durability and longevity, allowing you to enjoy your favourite pieces for years to come. Whether you opt for a classic jumper, a versatile cardigan, or a chic poncho, you can rest assured that you're investing in quality craftsmanship. To ensure that your Bow & Arrow piece is looking its best over its lifetime, we recommend using an electric fabric shaver (or electric lint remover) to remove pills. Pilling is a normal occurrence with woollen garments and it is nothing to worry about. It is simply the shorter fibres coming out as you wash and wear your jumper and this will decrease over time.

Luxurious Fabrics

At the heart of Bow & Arrow's women's collection are the luxurious fabrics used to create each garment. Merino wool, prized for its softness, warmth, and moisture-wicking properties, takes centre stage in many of the brand's jumpers and cardigans. Cashmere adds a touch of opulence, providing unparalleled softness and insulation against the chill. For the 2024 season, Bow & Arrow have added a luxurious range of 70% Merino & 30% cashmere jumpers to their range in a variety of new styles. 

Versatile Styles

Whether you're dressing for a casual weekend outing or a sophisticated evening event, Bow & Arrow's women's collection offers a variety of styles to suit every occasion. From timeless crew-neck jumpers with elbow patches to contemporary cable knit cardigans and elegant ponchos, there's something to complement every personal style and preference.

Sustainable Fashion

In an era where sustainability is paramount, Bow & Arrow sets itself apart by prioritising ethical and environmentally friendly fabrications. The brand sources its merino wool from Australian producers. By choosing natural fabrics over synthetic alternatives, Bow & Arrow reduces its environmental footprint while offering customers garments that are both luxurious and sustainable.

Timeless Elegance

Beyond trends and fleeting fads, Bow & Arrow's women's collection exudes timeless elegance. Each piece is designed to transcend seasons and effortlessly elevate any ensemble. Whether you layer a cable knit cardigan over a simple tee or drape a sleek poncho over a tailored outfit, you'll exude sophistication and style wherever you go.

 

In a world where fast fashion often dominates, Bow & Arrow stands as a beacon of quality, craftsmanship, and sustainability. Their women's jumpers, cardigans, and ponchos offer the perfect blend of luxury and comfort, allowing you to embrace elegance without sacrificing practicality. From the softest merino wool to the most sumptuous cashmere, each garment is a testament to the brand's dedication to providing timeless pieces that will withstand the test of time. So why not indulge in a Bow & Arrow creation today and experience the unparalleled comfort and style for yourself?

Introducing Coco Blue Coffee

Introducing Coco Blue Coffee

We've been keeping a little secret... Let us Introduce Coco Blue Coffee!

Moving into a bigger shop has provided us with an opportunity to combine even more of our favourite things under the one roof. So, finally, we are able to announce the opening of Coco Blue Coffee!

Our vision is to provide you with a welcoming place to experience high quality coffee, beautiful wares and wonderful service. The perfect place to enjoy a coffee in the sunshine with a friend, take a break from the monotonous highway drive and make some progress on your Christmas shopping.

For us, one of the most important details to decide on before opening Coco Blue Coffee was the supplier of our coffee. As long-time lovers of high quality coffee, it was imperative that we found a brand that matched our desire to provide customers with a memorable coffee experience, right from the first sip.
 
After lengthy research and a trip to Melbourne to experience Julius Meinl first hand, we knew that we had found our match. So, let us tell you a little about Julius Meinl, our chosen coffee supplier.
 

Not only does Julius Meinl fit our criteria for the perfect coffee, but their rich history and years of expertise (over 150 years in fact) gave us confidence in their product. I’m sure by now you are well aware that we love a brand with a story worth telling and a product worth selling!

Julius Meinl was established in Vienna in 1862, where green coffee beans were sold amongst spices, cocoa and other food products, before revolutionising the coffee roasting industry in 1877.  In 1913, Julius Meinl became the leading coffee roaster of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and since then has continued to evolve and expand. They are currently supplying coffee in 70 countries across the world and we are thrilled to be introducing Julius Meinl to Tasmania!

Coco Blue Coffee will be open tomorrow morning (Tuesday 12th December 2023), with complimentary coffee for our first 100 customers! 

From Tuesday onwards, we will be serving coffee and a selection of beautiful baked goods from 7am - 2pm 7 days a week. We can't wait to share this new venture with you, our cherished customers and hope that you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed preparing it for you!

Beautiful, Beautiful Ceramics

Beautiful, Beautiful Ceramics

 We have received an absolutely beautiful delivery from Noss & Co this week. A very special collection of brightly coloured, hand painted ceramic homewares just in time for Mother's Day.

Why we love Noss & Co:

Noss & Co is a fellow Tasmanian business founded by the gorgeous Kirsty in her little farm studio. Kirsty began Noss & Co creating every single piece by hand and has since found (after searching for the perfect match for her business) an international partner studio. The Noss & Co partner studio prioritises environmentally friendly practices and continues to hand paint every piece. 

About the collection:

This delivery includes four gorgeous lamps which I'm imagining perched perfectly on a bedside table. A sweet way to add a splash of colour to your bedroom. Besides the gorgeous lamps, we have 10 stunning vases of different designs and sizes. It's nearly impossible to choose a favourite from this collection but the  Cornflower Blue Striped Vase | Medium is coming home with me -  it was love at first sight!

Each piece comes complete with a gorgeous gift box designed by Victorian artist Morgan Jamieson.

If you're still on the search for a gift for mum or a special lady in your life, we think that a Noss & Co piece would make a beautiful present. In addition to these new arrivals, we still have some lucky last made in Tasmania pieces. A Noss & Co soap dish would make a lovely (and affordable) little gift to say 'I love you' - shop the soap dishes here.
