Precious Trash

trash_520

One persons trash is another’s treasure. Indeed. Swedish Designer Johanna Törnqvist has created a collection created from recycled textile and plastic. Quite a beautiful fashion and environmental statement, handcrafted, and each unique. ‘Precious trash’ is a dress made out of recycled material, based on one familys consumption of coffee and pasta for 2 months. To make the dress trash has been processed and refined to become precious material’. Talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve. Perfect.

Commune Linens

These Bauhaus-inspired table linens were designed by Commune Design for Heath Ceramics. Known for their collaborative design process, use of natural materials and handmade craft, they have worked with some of the most design focused brands in the industry. Folks like the Ace Hotel, the Standard, Barney’s New York, Heath Ceramics, and the list goes on.

These beautiful handcrafted textiles feature a ‘threaded ticking detail on the napkins, placemat and tablecloth, juxtaposed against a subtle backdrop complementing Heathware perfectly. The table napkins are generously sized. Commune linens are made from 100% washed and piece-dyed linen that gets softer and more beautiful with each use.’

A joy to use, enhancing the design experience of the meal.
