Embers and Twine add a touch of charm to Top of Town

Sisters Narelle Thorburn and Alicia Coop are in the business of giving – that is, helping others choose meaningful gifts for friends and family.
Embers and Twine came into existence when the pair started offering gift packs at markets and quickly realised that the highest demand was for the items they had made themselves by hand.

“We try to offer thoughtful things that will make someone feel special,” Ms Coop said.

Framed personalised art featuring customised words and text are the shop’s biggest sellers.

The sisters have created their own range of soy and coconut wax candles, and in a nod to sustainability, they encourage customers to bring the glass jar back to be refilled for half the original price.

They can also create gifts and table decorations for celebrations and weddings – including kokedama string gardens.

The shop is decorated with vintage finds and lights to pay tribute to its heritage location in the Old Flour Mill building in the Top of Town.
