WELCOME

Bamford Life offers a window into Bamford’s world.

We shine a spotlight on the makers with whom we collaborate; distil the science behind our skincare and beauty products; and highlight what we are doing to keep lightening our environmental footprint. There’s also inspiration for you – ways to celebrate the season and ideas for how to nurture your wellbeing or tread a little more lightly with your own footprint.

I hope you find something that sparks joy.

WELCOME

From our founder Carole Bamford

Spring feels as though it’s giving way to summer. The days are getting warmer and my garden is showing all the signs of being fed by sunshine – full of colour and fragrance.

Lots of us are starting to thinking about our summer wardrobe, so for those looking a new piece or something for a holiday escape, I’m excited to have launched Bamford’s second capsule collection in collaboration with Martha Ward. There are smock dresses, jumpsuits and vintage-inspired blouses – each in soft, nostalgic colours that make me think of sunshine.

A change of season often makes me want to rethink the scents I’m using, so our new citrus and sage body ranges feel perfect for this time of year – the bright, refreshing fragrances make me think of sunshine and are an invigorating start to the morning.

I hope that this issue of Bamford Life inspires to savour this wonderful time of the year.

Carole

THE ART OF HAND-INTARSIA

The craft of hand-intarsia, meaning 'inlaid by hand', is a knitting technique rooted in the heritage of the Scottish borders, having been produced there for generations. We have been producing hand-intarsia garments with the same maker for years, and are committed to ensuring the craft has a future.

A GUIDE TO ATMOSPHERIC SCENTING

When it comes to creating a comfortable and inviting atmosphere inside your home, one element is often overlooked: the scent. The question to ask is, which home fragrance - incense, candles, or diffuser - is better for creating an overall atmosphere? Read our guide to atmospheric scenting.

HOME-GROWN MERINO WOOL: THE STORY

Bamford is launching a first-of-its-kind merino wool knitwear collection, to be made entirely from UK wool that has been grown at Daylesford Organic farm in the Cotswolds.

THE MAKING OF OUR BUTTON CUFF

The journey and story behind this single piece sums up everything we do at Bamford. Explore the making of our button cuff sweater: consciously designed, responsibly made, attention to detail at every step.

NATURAL SELECTION

Natural Selection is a partnership between architects Farrokh Aman and James Binning. Our new Natural Selection range of clay sculptures brings character into any interior space, celebrating the strangeness and variety of what is grown in the ground through distinctive objects for the home.

FORTIFY YOUR SKIN AGAINST COLDER WEATHER

As we transition into colder months and the weather changes, our skin will react to the new season too. Our Wellness and Treatment Manager shares her fail-safe fortifying skincare regime for the cold months to protect skin against the cooler temperatures and drier air.

OUR FIRST REGENERATIVE SILK

for this collection we have transformed our silk supply chain to one that is regenerative, one which gives back to our planet and its soils. The silk farm that we source from uses responsible practices such as rotational cropping and intercropping, which promotes soil biodiversity.

SUSTAINING SUPPORT: A HERITAGE OF HANDWEAVING

Handwoven and hand-printed fabrics have a strong presence in each of our collections. We wanted to maintain their prominence in this spring–summer collection because of its significance to the people throughout its supply chain, traditions and skills that provide livelihoods to so many.

THE SPRING: THE WATER ELEMENT

The wet spa at our Cotswolds Spa harnesses the tranquillity of the water element in state-of-the-art facilities. The three areas of The Spring pay tribute to the ancient heritage of spas, born from a collective understanding of what it means to be well in one’s body, and to be well as a community.

THE ARTISTRY OF INDIA: OUR COLLABORATION WITH INJIRI

Our philosophy and focus with our clothing has always been to create garments that are timeless in their design and made to last you for years. Season after season, we are privileged to collaborate with Injiri, a clothing and homeware label founded by Chinar Farooqui.

ORGANIC COTTON: A RELATIONSHIP OF RECIPROCITY

More than three quarters of the cotton fibres we have used in our SS21 collection is either certified organic or handwoven, which in turn supports both people and planet. We have increased the organic content in our collection by 25% since last year.

UNIT 89: GROUNDING IN TACTILITY

Unit 89 creates bespoke ceramic artworks that preserve a tangible human connection between the maker and the person that experiences a piece. The newest collection of Unit 89 ceramic vessels are now available to purchase in Bamford stores; made entirely by hand using a hand-pinching technique.

BEE NURTURED

Designed by our founder Carole Bamford, our bee jewellery collection is inspired by the life’s essential pollinators and our goal to protect their natural environment.

THE IMPORTANCE OF RECOVERY

'Recover as hard as you train' is a mantra that Harry Jameson is spreading in 2020

POSITIVE LUXURY LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD 2020

Positive Luxury announces Carole Bamford as winner of the Lifetime Achievement award 2020.

NATURAL HIGHS

Energy is an elusive thing. We rely on it from the second we awake until the moment we climb back into bed. It sustains us as we move, work and talk; it enables us to concentrate, to focus, and to be creative.

LOOK UP AT THE MOON

Watching the moon from month to month and year to year will put you in touch with her cycles and rhythms – it will help you to remember that we’re all a part of something much bigger.

THE SUN, YOGA AND THE SCIENCE OF LIFE

The sun witnessed the dawn of yoga many thousands of years ago. Thus yoga, too, starts with the sun. Today, we see the bright noon of yoga lighting up the world as its popularity has spread from its origins in Northern India across the globe.

BREATH WORKS

There are many techniques from both the East and the West that teach us how to breathe in a way that is best for our well-being. The basics, however, are simple and actually the most important for everyday use.

MAKING TIME FOR TEA

Create your own tea ceremony at home with Bamford Organic Infusions. Choose an infusion that matches the state you would like to be in by the end of your meditation and ceremony.

HEALING RITUALS AT HOME

Well-being is a word that is not always fully understood, but for me it simply means being healthy and happy in body, mind and spirit. How we achieve well-being is personal to each of us - our healing rituals have been created to provide you with inspiration to nourish your well-being at home.

HOW TO KEEP POSITIVE ENERGY FLOWING THROUGH THE HOME

Our homes can be our sanctuary, they can be our protectors: in taking care of the home, we are nurturing this relationship and honouring that it is a part of our well-being. We asked Alla to share her recommendations and techniques for keeping positive energy flowing through the home.

THE POWER OF CRYSTALS

Sleep better, spur change and sharpen your mind with these supercharged stones

HEARTHSIDE ALPACA HAND-KNIT

Each season we product a single hand-knitted piece as a mark of our admiration of this rare skill and our commitment to preserving it. This winter, we have chosen to work with an alpaca yarn to create a beautifully soft and cosy winter jumper.
