Going Green - Textile Recycling

Main Image

Conscious of our ever-changing environment, we're always looking at ways we can improve our impact on the planet, both personally and professionally.

This month we're "going green" - and we'll take a look at different ways that some of our brands approach sustainable business practices, as well as habits we can adapt to shape our own eco-footprints.

First up, we take a look at Icon Textiles and how they are supporting the 'closed-loop' model of sustainable textile production...

A beautiful visit from Elitis

Main Image

Fascinated by the beauty of the Greek islands, the sun, the blue sea and the sky, Patrice Marraud des Grottes (Elitis Auteur) drew his inspiration from the name of the contemporary Greek poet Odysseas Elytis when naming his company, created in Toulouse in 1988.

Sine then, Elitis artists gather creative inspiration from all areas of the globe. In 2017, the inspiration for the latest collection has come from our very own Oceania!

 

Festive Inspirations

And on the 10th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

…interiors inspired by the warm, cosy and traditional festive feeling.

Christmas decorations usually come out of storage on the 1st of December and are sadly taken down only 25 days later. It’s a very short amount of time which means that decorations are often cheap, recyclable and don’t often make the statement in your home that you see in the Christmas movies.

Cubana – Matthew Williamson at Osborne & Little

…Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there…

Barry Manilow’s Copacabana is not quite where the inspiration for the latest collection from Matthew Williamson originates from, but it brings to memory an era of feathers and colours and a variety of tropicalities… oh my!
