Check out our blog we wrote for PEXMAS!
Hi! We’re Ellen and Kat, the brains behind BAM. We create handcrafted and sustainable botanical homewares, including our hand painted signature monochrome pots (each with their own name and personality), macrame hangers and welded plant stands. All made in Forest Hill, SE London. Alongside this we sell a range of houseplants, carefully selected with London life in mind we source the most hardy, low maintenance and air purifying botanical babes! If we’re not in our tiny studio/ shed at the bottom our garden you can find us most weekends at farmers/makers markets around SE London or teaching one of our creative workshops. Teaching others is one of our favourite parts of the job and helping them discover the therapeutic benefits immersing yourself in a new craft can bring. We love seeing the glee on someone’s face when they go home with something they’ve created. We’ll be running drop in sessions for kids plant pot painting at Pexmas on the 7th from 11-2pm so come and see us! We’re both passionately environmentally conscious and strive keep this at the centre of our ethos, from the recycled cotton yarn we use for our macrame, to the packaging and paper that we print our business cards on. We can’t wait to trade at Pexmas this year! We’ve been hoping to since we heard about them from another trader this time last year. We love that they have a similar ethos to us when it comes to looking after our environment and were thrilled to hear that they’ve partnered with Plastic Free Peckham this year. Community spirit is quite clearly central to them and the weekend itself caters for all ages, bringing everyone together which is what Christmas is all about for us! So - Are you a self confessed plant addict or know someone who is? We’ve got the perfect gift, find us at Pexmas on 7th of December and we’ll sort you out ;) And if you can’t wait that long check out our website www.bamlondon.net Thanks for reading! E & K xx
