Beautiful, simple and affordable. The back story makes us fall in love even more.

Make your dining experience a little more luxury and enjoyable with Butter products – ethical soft tableware made in East London.

They say;

Founded by partners Alex and Ed, Butter exists for a generation who want to make a house a home, but won’t be able to buy their own for years to come. We aim to create homeware that brings a little bit of joy and will follow you wherever you go.

Our story began in lockdown, tired of using and disposing of paper towels at every meal we looked for a sustainable alternative. Our problem was the napkins on the market were either achingly dull or cripplingly expensive. We struck on producing classic table linen that could lift any meal.

To long til the big day and if there’s no spare time to make or buy materials to create some stylish personal napkin rings then maybe these ideas will help.

We’ve scoured the internet for ideas that can be created with bits you’ll have around the house or could forage from the local area plus they don’t take long to make.

All ideas use bits of string, paper, ribbon, snippets of leaves and twigs, scraps of fabric and even beads from an old necklace.

home: made [ tie dye ]

Memories of the 80’s and 90’s tie dye may be a thing of the past, but now tie dye is back in a new modern way. Gone is the rainbow of colours and in is a more monochrome simple colour pallette.
It’s very easy to get the look yourself on pillow cases, tea towels and napkins, with a few essentials. And it’s fun!
