All the Spring news for C F McEwan, see this season’s newsletter.
New chiffon and crepe de chine scarves on display in jewellery boutique Kuka-me in Notting Hill, London. Kuka-me is the shop and studio of jewellery designer Reema Pachachi. The word Kuka-me combines the Zulu and Northern Sotho word ‘kuka’ – meaning lift up or uplift, with the English word ‘me’. The name was inspired by a comment from a customer: that she always feels confident and gorgeous in the jewellery.
Clare has been sharing her inspirations with arts and culture website Art Wednesday this week…
“Textile artist and designer Clare McEwan creates silk scarves that are like wearable works of art. Inspired by the play-off between light, shadow, texture and surface, Clare shows respect for artisanal craft, coupled with contemporary printing techniques. We asked Clare to share her influences and inspirational fixes with us; from artistic muses to secret escapes.”
“If I could dive into this scarf and live in it I would!”

Scarves from the new collection have made their way to Kent to the beautiful boutique Fi Chi in Tunbridge Wells.
January 12th to 14th was the very first CRAFT show at Earls Court in partnership with trade shows Top Drawer and Home. Clare previewed her new scarf collection.
New collection by C F McEwan launching at CRAFT 2014, Redefining Handmade, at Earls Court, London January 12th – 14th. Stand CF 11. See more of the collection here.
The launch of CRAFT is in response to increasing demand from retailers searching for high quality products with provenance; items which are truly unique and original; objects with heart, soul and individuality.
Located alongside Home and Top Drawer at Earls Court in January 2014 and housed in its own specially designed space, CRAFT will be home to 100 carefully selected contemporary makers.
