Fancy buying yourself a little treat this weekend? How about a new cosmetic bag? I just love cosmetic and toiletry bags, and these two Morris & Co from Heathcote Ivory bags, in the new ‘Love is Enough’ print are beautiful.
The delicate leaf patterns, balanced with a traditional typeface, are based on the wall design in the Green Dining Room at the Victoria & Albert Museum and manage to bring William Morris’s heritage and romance together in a celebration of love in tribute to the poem, Love Is Enough.
LOVE is enough: though the World be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder,
And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass’d over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter;
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter
These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.
As well as these lovely bags, there’s a whole range of bath and body products oin this new collection. Fragranced with romantic top notes of peach, osmanthus and jasmine intertwined with heliotrope and musks, it’s a lovely scent.
The linen cosmetics bags come in two sizes – medium and large, and I think they’d make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day.
Morris & Co Medium Linen Cosmetic Bag, £16, Large Linen Cosmetic Bag, £20, available from various stockists and Heathcote & Ivory
