Cavania oozes feminity. The amazing array of colours from nature, patterns from old silks and textiles, elegant antiquity fi nds are just some of the objects that create the inspiration


behind todays Cavania. Founder and designer Karen Sanders sums up her design philosophy. She said: “A simple button box would hold my imagination for hours, the shapes and colours were simply magical to me. Watching old movies, I grew up loving the golden age of glamour and I can always remember longing for an old fashioned hatbox to sit on top of my wardrobe.Today I enjoy exploring images of yesteryear with fashions and details that I could only dream of wearing.” The latest Diamonte range features delicate illustrations of


jewelry, shoes, bags cosmetics, depicting different textures from lace to patent leather, hand fi nished with sparkling diamontes and metallic foil. Each card comes cello wrapped with a pearlised envelope.

Feminine cards for high


rollers At the premium end of the market, the feminine and luxurious cards by blackbaileybrown greeting cards are no longer something to be thrown away or the last thing that you open when you get a present. Made using anything from platinum to fl amboyant feathers, blackbaileybrown don’t just make greeting cards and invitations, they create a piece of art. Creative manager, Simone Brown, said: “Consumers are trying to


fi nd more and more ways to stand out, more ways to express their individuality and more ways to show the world that they are different. The greeting card industry is worth billions annually in the UK alone, yet many cards are often made so cheaply with not much thought at all. We hope to change this and bring back the real meaning of giving a card.”


Blackbaileybrown say the quality justifi es the premium price tag with the average card retailing at £14 each. “Our retail price refl ects the fact that they are all handmade with the highest quality materials and also the fi nishing touch being the case (envelope) and the packaging box.” Retailers and stockists are able to order the christmas collections online now.
