Yours Sustainably brings summer from Sri Lanka

Online boutique Yours Sustainably has collaborated with Sri Lanka-based Happy Craft on a new collection of summery accessories.

The collection comprises floral necklaces and headbands, all hand-crocheted by the eight members of craft group Happy Craft, village women who create the pieces to generate their own income.

Dutch rulers introduced crochet to Sri Lanka in the 17th century and can now be seen in other traditional crafts.

Many of the pieces (£9.99 to £17.99) are multipurpose and add more than a hint of Summer of Love attitude to a festival outfit.
