I was so lucky to be sitting next to Miwa of indie label Miwary on Sunday at the Hackney City Farm Market. She is so lovely and we had so much in common! It was great to sit and make and chat all day long. She makes such inspired treasures such as these adorable fabric teacups and mini teddy brooches.
