Pretty Practical - Mail Organiser

This mail organiser wall hanging from Pretty Practical is a great way to organise all that paperwork that comes across the kitchen bench and gives a place to put everything – plus it’s pretty!

It has been made with Navy, Blue and Silver 100% cotton fabric with the labels embroidered in beautiful silver rayon thread. You can find Pretty Practical on facebook or the web.
