our christmas design review continues with a selection of designs from sainsbury's supermarket. they had gone for a homespun look with lots of kraft paper, gingham, knitting, and lace doileys. for me they were definitely the best supermarket designs this year with tesco and asda failing to match up in the style stakes.
