home: nice price [ eco kitchen towel ]
We are often looking for ways to both be more environmentally friendly and purse friendly. They can go hand in hand as if something is reusable then even though there’s an initial outlay, in the long run it will save money as it does not need to be bought again.
These reusable (washable) kitchen rolls from WearthLondon are the perfect addition to your kitchen to be cost effective and planet friendly.
Handmade in the UK with highly absorbent organic terry cotton, this reusable kitchen roll is great at mopping up spills and rubbing up grime with a biowashed linen blend side, ideal for shining surfaces and using with cleaning products.
These eco-friendly kitchen rolls are available in 4 minimal colours – Peach, Mustard, Sandalwood & Navy.
Each sheet of this washable kitchen roll comes with poppers so they can be wrapped around a kitchen roll holder.
6 sheets per order with option to add eco-friendly rubberwood roll holder (pictured) for £6.

home: featured [ Homeplace ]
We love the mix of vintage and contemporary homeware at HomePlace. All pieces are carefully considered in this beautifully curated range. Both old and new sit along side each other so well.
There’s great pieces to add character and texture to an interior. The homewares would also make great gifts, especially the unique vintage pieces.
Homeplace was founded on the basis that homes should tell a story about their inhabitants.
And our aim is to provide our customers with an eclectic but carefully considered selection of vintage, mid century, retro and contemporary furniture, lighting and homeware, so they are able to mix styles, eras, colours and textures to create homes that have as much personality as they do.
We source items which we love and which we hope you will do too. We are passionate about great design – contemporary as well as Mid Century but we are also fans of the quirky and the whimsical..and we like nothing better than mixing them all up to create eclectic interiors with heaps of individuality.
The idea of incorporating vintage pieces into the home as a means for a more sustainable way of living is also important to us here at Homeplace – for today’s eco-conscious consumer, there is arguably no more environmentally friendly a way to furnish a home.
However, not everyone has the time to scour flea markets and fairs so Homeplace offers an edited selection of ever-changing eye catching vintage, Mid Century and retro pieces as well as an exciting range of well designed & interesting contemporary items that will happily sit alongside each other in the home.
