Our jounal

We are on a journey to discover unique handcrafted treasures from around the world…

WYLE BLUE WORLD...

was founded in 2016 when Belinda travelled with her son to the alluring city of Marrakech. Immediately falling in love with its creative culture, stunning textiles and in particular, the enchanting Jardin Marjorelle – engulfed in an array of vibrant colours and magnificent architecture, Jardin Marjorelle became a major influence in Wyle Blue World’s beginnings. The dazzling exotic “ultramarine blue” that adorns the walls of Yves Saint Laurent Jardin Majorelle  is now the back drop to our own Secret Garden, adorned with mosaic tables, iron chairs, pots and planters, all of which are for sale.

THE JOURNEY CONTINUED TO SOUTH AFRICA...

inspired by the creative and resourceful work of local artisans, creating beautiful handcrafted works of art, from beaded necklaces to up-cycled beer cans into a life size Kiddo head – much to the amusement of fellow travellers when it came home in Belinda’s hand luggage!

WITH THIS INSPIRATION IN MIND, THE CONCEPT OF WYLE BLUE WAS FORMED...

after months of major renovations, the historic grade II listed building was transformed from ‘The Same Day Dry Cleaners’ (which originally opened in 1958) to the unique Home & Lifestyle store and secret garden.

OUR JOURNEY HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN...

discovering the talent of many artisans from around the world. As Hannah embarks on her travels across the magical country of India and Belinda exploring the nature and beauty of Vietnam. They both aim to bring a little piece of the country, through the craftsmen they meet along the way. Cramming all this goodness and creativity into our little shop on the Wyle Cop… WYLE BLUE WORLD.

IN JANUARY OF THIS YEAR, HANNAH EMBARKED ON HER TRAVELS ACROSS INDIA...

a place of mystery, spirituality, colour and love. Everything she fantasised it would be came true! Seeing elephants & tigers in the jungle, learning the art of block printing in Rajasthan, watching prayer ceremonies on the banks of the Ganges, to the chaotic streets blocked by slow moving cows…and so much more
