Happy Halloween!

Halloween's not just about pumpkins and candy, y'all - it's celebrated in various forms around the world, and has a rich and fascinating history. The Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos is only tangentially related to what we know as Halloween, although it happens at the same time. There's no candy here except eye candy - the traditional "sugar skull" designs have recently seen a surge in popularity, and they make a really striking element when used in unexpected places, like this gorgeous cushion from Jeez Louise.

We featured this item in our newsletter this week, along with a curated collection of our favourite Halloween-inspired items. There's a new theme every week, so if you'd like to be kept in the loop, sign up below!
