Our 'Why'. . .
Did you ever hear the story about the guy who walked along the beach and threw washed-up starfish back into the sea? The message was that one man couldn't change the world, the starfish would keep washing in on the tide. But his message? That he made a difference to each little creature he put back in the sea.
I'm trying to be that guy (well, girl), be that difference, but I'm not throwing starfish back into the sea, I'm keeping plastic out!
After living in the south of France and seeing how few plastic bags are used over there, I was surprised to see that more sustainable bags were not being used back home here in Perth! The humble french market basket, such a household staple in Europe, was missing from the Perth market scene . . . until now.
Our French-inspired market baskets are all handwoven by Moroccan artisans using their traditional methods. Crafted from fallen palm fronds, the resulting baskets are flexible, sturdy and each is unique. Replace your plastic shopping bags with sustainable baskets as a chic alternative.
Our peshtemal towels are hand loomed from 100% cotton. Lightweight and super absorbent, they are perfect for just about everything - bath towel, beach towel, wrap, sarong and travel rug. Best of all, they take up next to no space, dry in a flash and require minimal water for washing.
I hope you come to love our products as much as I do and look forward to hearing from you soon.
