The catalyst for Gramon is my passion to create and acquire all the the things I love, then to pass them on to fellow devotees at realistic prices.
I've an especially great weakness for the finest quality cashmere and beautiful things made from all natural fibres.
Gramon is the exclusive Australian distributor for the Travelwrap Company which produces the most scrumptiously soft 2 ply knitted cashmere wraps/ scarves made in Scotland and available in a vast array of colours. This amazing product has won UK Luxury Gift of the Year and Best New Business over the past few years.
I import an eclectic range of designer fabric; predominantly English and French country linens and beautiful unusual finds I unearth on my travels to the UK and Europe. I then transform these treasures into bespoke or limited run cushions, tablecloths, lavender bags, aprons and pinboard designs.
I also have a small range of selected remnants from designers including Ralph Lauren, Designers Guild, Sanderson, Harlequin, Brunschwig and Fils, Zoffany, Liberty, William Morris and the list goes on.
Antique French linens are becoming scarce but I've managed to find a source in Provence who supplies me with the most gorgeous linens predominantly tea towels and embossed initial pillow cases.
Gramon is the only Australian distributor for the Linen Works, London which produces the most stunning French linen for contemporary living. I stock their beautiful French linen tea/hand towels, aprons, plain cushion covers, oven gloves, pyjamas and everyday bags at competitive prices.
Added to this I have a rainbow of linen colours from which I create one off or limited run cushions, some of which I embellish with an array of pipings from simple colours, Liberty prints and an ever expanding array of pom poms. I've recently found a manufacturer who makes me pom poms to order and I can create custom sized pom pom cushions from tiny to massive 1 metre by 1 metre floor cushions (even larger if you like!)
St Alban's is a fantastic Australian owned company producing the most beautiful blankets, throws, wraps etc made from Australian wool, mohair and alpaca.I keep a vast array of colours at appealing prices. This very popular product has found a place as a very special gift for overseas recipients.
To complement the St Alban's range I've started importing some interesting and covetable designs from Bronte by Moon, UK at good prices for Australian customers. I have also started importing merino and cashmere throw rugs from John Hanly, Ireland which are going down a treat with my Australian customers.
Gramon Cookies in a jar are a fantastic item to have as a last minute gift when visiting friends or keeping the children amused. Gramon Cookies in a jar are most of the ingredients required for M and M cookies artfully arranged in a jar and are beautiful to look at. Around Christmas Gramon Christmas Cookies make an appearance. ( I can make cookie jars customised to order for weddings, children's party favours and so on).
Current limited run items include English wool socks from Catherine Tough, London in a wonderful array if colours and patterns as well as English made cashmere gloves.
I love to travel and am always on the lookout for a run of something beautiful of the finest quality to add to my collection for a limited time. Keep an eye out for the latest acquisitions in my What's New section.
Many thanks for looking at my collection.
All the best.
