HANDMADE GIFTS FOR EVERYDAY LIVING
We love to create simple textiles for purposeful living and thoughtful giving. Our items are functional and beautiful for everyday use or as special gifts. All Cotton + Wood gifts are carefully designed and handmade by Shelley in our home studio in the Illawarra, NSW. Simple, contemporary textiles made to last.
Creativity allows us to give of ourselves for the benefit and enjoyment of others. We love using what's in our hands to do this, and connecting you with the maker behind the handmade items you buy.
EVERY PURCHASE HELPS TO CHANGE LIVES
Every purchase from Cotton + Wood is life changing! A portion of each online sale is donated to Watoto Neighbourhood. This initiative empowers some of the most vulnerable women in Uganda in ways that have a long-term impact, both for their families and communities. Having had the privilege to see these projects in action in March 2017, and to meet the women being transformed, we seek to support this crucial work by doing what we love.

We also love to support Forever Projects through local fundraising events. This initiative brings hope and dignity to Tanzanian families by equipping them to move themselves from poverty through initial life-saving support. Learn more about Forever Projects here.
