L-R Anna, Penny, Shirley

Anna and Penny, the sister duo who own and run Carnival Homewares, will miss the normal family get-together this year, but the stories will still be flowing on Zoom. Shirley is Anna and Penny’s mum, and she recalls fondly the origins of Carnival Homewares. Shirley & husband Michael first introduced the girls to India and the world of commerce through their Wholesale Textile business, Thirsty Towels, with their first trip to India in 1978.

Now forty years later, Anna and Penny have successfully continued the family business and love bringing you the latest Carnival Homewares fusion of coastal bohemian, stylish city living and sophisticated country warmth. And Shirley couldn’t be more proud of her daughters!
