Made from certified organic cotton and coloured using natural dyes, this bag is perfect for the groceries, brunch or the beach. Kit Willow’s designs aren’t just planet and people friendly, they’re timeless and edgy too. We love her commitment to championing natural fibres like organic cotton and linen.
Posse prides itself on timeless design so you know once you purchase a piece it’ll definitely fall into the #30wears category, and well beyond. Each piece – including the Mon Cherie dress – is made by hand from artisans in Bali, with their wages going directly to them for their work. We also love their jumpsuits and wide-leg pants for summer.
Artist and jeweller Holly Ryan’s minimalistic pieces are designed to be treasured forever. They’re functional for everyday wear, with that little bit of glamour for special occasions. Her designs are first cast in wax then sculpted in recycled metals and finished by hand. And rings, necklaces and bangles can also be coordinated. She also offers a recycling program where you can return your old pieces of HR jewellery for store credit.
Born on the Gold Coast, Australia this chic boutique swim label is made from recycled nylon – think fabric made from recycled ocean waste such as old fishing nets, carpet and fabric waste. Styles can be mixed and matched, and the one-pieces offer great coverage, but make sure you get in quick as they tend to sell out fast!
You probably know Black Chicken Remedies from their awesome Axilla natural deodorant, but they also do a range of other cool products like face moisturisers and serums. This pack has the lot – cleanser, complexion polish, mist toner, serum and muslin face cloth – and if you buy it in a bundle you’ll also save on the individual price. A great gift for the natural beauty lover.
