How It All Began Hot Pottz our Story

How it all Began – Hot Pottz Our Story.

What’s not to like about coffee and wine, and dressing up your dining room table, kitchen, patio or wherever you like to relax to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine. It began with an annual award ceremony presentation idea for our local theatre group’s production of The Pyjama Game, a coffee Cafetiere cosy (which we now call snugs) in the design of pyjamas, a crazy idea but it was a hit with everyone who received one!

From that idea, we have developed other templates to cater for the various sizes of Cafetiere. We then discovered that a metallic reflective type wadding which would keeping items cool or ambient, and the wine Bottle Butler was created!  Not only does it look more chic on the table, it does allow white wine in particular, which has a tendency to drip condensation down the bottle when removed from the fridge, to remain cool and the condensation is absorbed  (that is if you can leave it on the table for that long!).

We hand sketch and draw all of our own artwork for the applique work, and then set about designing the snugs, and then the fun starts …….. which fabrics to use, this process takes the longest!

We do not like to repeat the designs because fabric fashions change with the seasons, and can become discontinued, and this makes any purchase totally unique to you. Our artwork will be used in other colourways, and the closures may vary, and we like to colour co-ordinate as many different products as a length of fabric will allow. Nothing is wasted, and we will always try to use any scraps wherever we can.
