Kashgar

October 2015 Newsletter

 

 

Dear  %recipient.subscriber_first_name%

 

Well, it's been a while between newsletters, and I can only plead that we have spent our time most productively increasing our stock back to our usual mammoth proportions, and also taking on new suppliers of Kashgar essentials - a beautiful new range of teas and tea accessories and also a locally made range of soy candles - but more on that later.

If you've been in to the store recently you've seen just how much new stock we've got -  incense, soaps, vintage posters, alabaster from Egypt, recyled teak organic bowls, rugs from Iran, cedar wood storage chests from Afghanistan and some gorgeous old textiles from Central Asia. Added to this is a new range of silk, cotton and cashmere scarves, Indian jewellery, kimonos from Japan and some beautiful Mexican handicrafts featuring Day of the Dead and the iconic Frida.

I've also added a couple of our recent articles for your reading pleasure. And if you would like to see an article on any subject related to the tribal world, please feel free to drop us a line with suggestions - or even a guest article. Happy to publish it!

We look forward to many continuing adventures and hope to see you in store at Kashgar soon.

All the best from

Ian, Linda, Bernie & Phoenix
