I’m voyaging toward the balmy blue waters of the Maldives with my partner in crime from the 14th to 28th of July. During this time I am attempting my first ever TRUE digital detox. No email. No trawling social channels (my fave!!!) and no blogging at all.
I’m foreseeing a magical calm and reversal of computer induced squinty eye wrinkles (As if! I’m thinking more about just having a holiday with cocktails and finding Nemo with m’snorkel!)
Please come back and see me at the end of the month for some great exclusives we have lined up to share from local brands PLUS the launch of our limited edition new TEAM.WORK collaboration project with ALAS. EG…those pj’s below.
PS – if I cave it will be on Snapchat so you can join me there: “studiohome”
As luck would have it, all three of this weeks posts are concentrating on products made of natural fibres. Leading the way is Seljak Brand, who I happened to stumble upon at a recent design market in Sydney. They are allll about the woolly blanket but in a new, appealing form!
Seljak Brand makes recycled wool blankets using offcuts from the factory floor of Australia’s oldest mill in Tasmania.
The blankets are made from 70% recycled Australian merino wool and a 30% blend of recycled alpaca, mohair and polyester for strength. Wool is a natural fibre that is incredibly hard to replicate – it’s a renewable resource, it is odour and stain resistant, antibacterial, lightweight, breathable and insulating.
The guys stand behind their stance on responsible design by offering to collect your blanket (post its busy adventurous life!) at no cost using Sendle, a carbon neutral courier service. Back at the mill, they’ll shred it and spin it into new yarn to make future blankets.
I reallllly really like their model and quality, good looking final product! You can explore more here.
