Blossom is a small business based in Cornwall and run by myself Clare Cross. It started 13 years ago when Rick and Jill stein gave me the opportunity to design a t-shirt promoting Padstow to sell in their gift shop. Things “blossomed” and I started designing my own clothing range where my focus led to knitwear. Today my designs are all hand made in an international community for unity . No one owns anything and everything goes back into the community, thus giving you a unique garment where no two are exactly the same.
My free and easy styles are inspired by my life and travels. I was buying and selling clothing 20 years ago whilst travelling around the world and selling them in Cornwall on my market stall. Today I am still selling on my market stall in Cornwall as well as exhibiting around the country.
I still source natural fabrics from abroad and can’t help being influenced by the lifestyle of Cornish beach living and the colours around me. My colour range is as important to me as the design. With all this in mind Blossom was born.
I’ve known Clare for many years. We buy her clothing for Stein’s Gift Shop. I wear the clothes myself as they look great and are comfortable and easy to wear every day.
