Bishop’s Castle is a small historic market town set in the beautiful Shropshire hills. There are bookshops to browse in, great places to eat, and the town even has two real ale breweries. It's a quiet place apart from when we have our Festivals in the summer. For more info about Bishop's Castle, look here.

We have an ever changing stock of fine hand made textiles bought from makers in small towns and villages across Asia. Everything is chosen personally and we try our best to stock things which are unusual and often unique. Most of what we sell, we have bought ourselves from the Far East or else it comes from other textile enthusiasts and traders.


Some of the unique items from our shop are also available online in our Special Items section.

We are open from 10am to 5pm every day except Sunday. We usually open on Bank Holiday Mondays but please phone first if you are coming from a long way as we sometimes go away on holiday too!
