We are absolutely delighted to launch both COCONUTS and PLANTATION prints this week.
Monday 24th January saw the launch of COCONUTS swim shorts, now made from a new REPREVE® fibre, and PLANTATION linens for men, women and children.
REPREVE® is made from recycled plastic bottles rescued mainly from the ocean. The bottles are chopped up, washed thoroughly and then melted before being turned firstly into flakes and then into chips before being heated, extruded and spun into fibre. At the time of writing around 31,171,220,000 bottles have been recycled in this way since the development of REPREVE® in 2007.
We have also used OEKO-TEX certified dyes meaning that they have been inspected and proved to contain no harmful pigments or inks.
Our linen fabric is also OEKO-TEX approved as well as the dyes used.
Together with our updated sustainable packaging materials, all made from recycled materials and all recyclable and all made here in the UK, we are very proud of this launch which truly supports our slow fashion and sustainability credentials.
Watch out for the launch of Lotty B's fabulous PLANTATION print on her gorgeous silk designs soon...
Comments will be approved before showing up.
We find that customers are interested in the story behind and the development of our prints. Lotty uses Mustique as her muse, and here we show how her original pencil sketches translate to our products...
We are great admirers of Lady Anne and her books and were absolutely delighted when she came to see us on Mustique this summer! With International Literacy Day this Friday, we thought reading would be a fun topic ...
