When you hear the words Shine Shine, it conjures up summer evenings with friends, filled warmth and laughter. Bring the summer into your home with the fabulous Shine Shine collection available at Porcupine Rocks.
Tracy Rushmere, founder of Shine Shine fabrics has created a collection inspired from African textiles. The striking colours are a ʻcreative explosion of African infused fabricsʼ, and just scream summer. There is a strong tradition in Africa of fabrics and textiles being used to tell stories, celebrate important events and even spread everyday messages. Inspired by this long tradition of politically and religiously commemorative cloths Shine Shine designs are fun and contemporary with a distinctive tongue-in-cheek style. The name Shine Shine came from the idea that people wear their 'shine' - small details of every day life that tell their story - scooter, snake, lipstick, high heeled shoes, flowers etc…
The Shine Shine African tableware is perfect whether you are hosting a summer party, bbq or even a wedding. These funky tin trays were featured in the June 2015 issue of Living Etc magazine, highlighting how these witty and fun trays can liven up any drinks get together or celebration.
The great news is that the Shine Shine collection does not just stop in the kitchen. The funky and bold design continues through our brightly coloured scatter cushions and rucksacks with the same distinctive tongue-in-cheek images. Whether it’s brightening up your sofa, carrying your swimming kit down to the beach or keeping the the kidʼs school books safe, you are sure to make a fun and bold statement. And if you want something more bespoke, the Shine Shine fabric is available by the meter for you to make your own creation, or, if you prefer, Porcupine Rocks offers a bespoke upholstery and curtain making service. The team can create anything from blinds to bedheads, ottomans to cushions, sofas to curtains. The fabric is made up of: 60% cotton, 40% linen, 145 cm wide, repeat 64cm.
Let the sun shine all year round, whatever the British weather throws at us.
