Something Cosy

Nestled in the picturesque town of Jarnac, in the Charente, you'll find Joanna Hinds, the creator and owner of newly established business Something-Cosy. Something-Cosy has grown out of what merely started as Christmas presents for friends and family. It offers  a colourful range of bespoke, handknitted tea cosies. 

Originally from the UK, Joanna relocated to Jarnac with her parents, John and Hilda Hinds, from Sydney, Australia by way of a sea change. Initially, planning to stay one summer with the view to returning to the UK to continue her career as a legal secretary, several summers later Joanna is still here! With a love of the local countryside, inspiration to create colourful tea cosies is not difficult.

What started as an idea for Christmas presents for friends and family soon turned into requests from friends of friends. Word is getting around! With social media networking, more requests soon followed from B&B's, local cafes, gite owners as well as further afield including the US, UK & Australia.

Something-Cosy also create home furnishings via Redbubble using photographs taken by Joanna of the beautiful French countryside & artwork by Hilda Hinds.
