bottlecloth eco friendly table cloths

 

IMG_4442

My favourite shades may be blue and yellow but its important to think green too! Allow me to introduce eco friendly Table Cloths from Bottle Cloth…

Concerned with the worldwide accumulation of plastic waste, founder Brenda saw reusable bags being used in supermarkets while on a trip to Australia in 2004. She immediately had a vision of bringing the idea to the States. A year later, together with her brother and son, she co-founded The Earthwise Bag Company. Today Earthwise Bag Company is a premier supplier of reusable grocery bags in the US (and abroad).

This theme prevailed as Brenda became frustrated at the lack of high-quality, eco-friendly, contemporary, and stylish table coverings that were also easy to use and care for (i.e. and would still look new after multiple washes!). After an extensive global search for just the right good-for-the-environment textile, she landed on 100% recycled woven polyester.

Using fabric made from recycled plastic bottles and transforming them into table coverings is an essential part of BottleCloth’s eco-mindful mission. Through a multi-step process, the plastic bottles are made into a fiber, which is then woven into a polyester cloth, resulting in a fabric that closely resembles woven cotton.

The end result is a modern-day woven polyester fabric that is highly durable, extremely soft, low maintenance, and spill-resistant. This wash-and-go, sustainable textile was exactly the canvas she had been searching for to bring her designs to life. Brenda can be found daily in her studio using a variety of large brushes, inks and paints, working on designs that may ultimately form part of the table coverings line.

BottleCloth’s debut Inspiration Collection is a compilation of big fluid brushstrokes representing freedom of movement, bold colors and contemporary geometric shapes (infusing a bit of humor and a modern spin on traditional gingham designs). An exciting addition to her line, Sacks teamed up with Danish Illustrator Ulla Puggaard on two of her table cloth designs. Brenda’s modern interpretation of tabletop chic can be seen in every detailed BottleCloth table covering.

“To put something on the table that is artistic and interesting to look at and will enhance the look and ambience of the dining area …. At the end of the day BottleCloth is all about bringing people together around a table….” – Brenda.

Im loving their bold and fun debut collection with more to come soon Click here to see more and to buy online

aquabumps art insitu

Just when I feel like I have been away from Bondi for ages heres a little something from Home…

I have know the awesome team behind Aquabumps Eugene and Deb since moving to Bondi – I like their style, I have even styled their Home for Inside Out Magazine, remember it was on the cover…

Eugene is Bondi’s best photographer no one quite captures Bondi like him.

Aquabumps have an awesome Gallery space in Bondi and also sell prints (frame and unframed) online. Since discovering his work we have for ages talked about a collaboration and have wanted to create some insitu room shots to show you how good these artworks are going to look in real spaces. So we set out creating some real room sweet ups to showcase the art.

Buying art is hard enough but then having to visualise how its going to look can be tricky for the best of us – so hey presto here you go, we created some beautiful images so you can have a better idea of how these awesome prints ( I have two of my very own) will look on your walls!

My number one tip for Art at Home – size matter think big!
