Running this week until Sunday, the wonderful ‘Field Work’ pop-up shop in Spitalfields has a fantastic selection of printed textiles, antique homeware and other bits and bobs of the ‘must see’ variety.

Just off Brick Lane, past the curry houses and down a side street, is where Hinshelwood de Borman have set up their newest pop-up shop. My only complaint after spending an hour leafing through the curiosities of ‘Field Work’ is that this isn’t a permanent shop - because it is absolutely lovely.
The selection by Caitlin Hinshelwood and Rose de Borman offers steep competition when it comes to picking a favourite, but I think the printed textiles from shop founders Caitlin and Rose are the stars of the show. Stacks of cotton and silk cushions are adorned with animal prints - one with giraffes, lions and bears, the next with frogs and snakes, and so on. The patterns are repeated on post cards, purses and on dresses for sale at the back. Soft colours and gorgeous, subtle patterns make for unorthodox and brilliant little outfits - like the dress covered in prints of root vegetables.
