Laura Shop Pic_edited.jpg

Cotton & Leaf was started by Laura in  2021.  After an illness that required surgery, friends and family were concerned about her ability to keep her mind occupied during her recovery and so a friend sent her a book on Macrame.  In those early days Laura made many projects but her love of houseplants kept on bringing her back to making plant hangers.  Her father, David, (a talented wood worker) was soon involved making shelves for Laura to weave cords through and Rosemary (Mum) became heavily involved as they began to sell her plant hangers and shelves alongside an array of houseplants at many of the islands fairs and markets

Their shop on Shooters Hill in Cowes opened in October 2023, after it became clear that there was a desire for a dedicated houseplant shop on the island. The shop houses their range of plant hangers, plant shelves and propagation units plus a large selection of houseplants all cared for by their expert knowledge.  They also stock a large variety of pots and houseplant care items. 

We know our stuff when it comes to keeping our leafy friends happy, and our passion for plants means all our plants are expertly looked after and we are keen to share this knowledge with as many people as possible.


 Laura manages the shop, assisted by shop dog Billie, whilst also designing and making all our Macrame designs. David (Dad), does all the woodwork in our handmade range, and Rosemary (Mum) lends her expertise in running the shop and crafting terrariums.
