Lush recycled fabrics inspired by exotic locations
Colours of Morocco with sunset pinks, purples, orange, yellow and brown
My Isla In Bloom rug and towel have arrived and I am excited. First of all, it’s shipped in biodegradable material which is pretty spesh. Their website says that they’re on a mission to elevate my picnic and beach day to an entirely new level. Who wouldn’t agree after seeing the divine boho designed fabric of a rug and the soft pastels and various shades of the towels. They actually seem too special to take to the beach.
Made from 100 % cotton
The fabric is lush. I just want to keep stroking it. Inspired by the rich colours of Morocco, my picnic rug is woven to create sunset pinks, a touch of purple, orange, yellow and brown. (Although that’s just my rug – there are plenty of other gorgeous shades to choose from.) The rug is perfect for long days by the ocean, or even use it on your bed or as a throw. It can cover the top of a king size bed and fits comfortably on a queen. The patterns are dreamt and designed in Sydney inspired by bohemian and floral aesthetics. All of the signature designs are hand-drawn and created by local and international artists.
In addition to its vibrantly luxe aesthetic, Isla In Bloom is committed to its social and ethical responsibilities of creating beautiful swimwear and summer accessories with minimal impact on the environment and the people who bring the designs to life. Their luxe collection also includes sustainable swimwear and beach umbrellas.
Isla In Bloom will recycle your product
Isla In Bloom state that their pieces are designed to be mindfully created from start to finish, so you can feel good about your purchase. Then, if or when you’re ready to part ways with your Isla In Bloom product – for whatever reason – just return it to them along with the label (paid by them) and they’ll take it to their textile recycling partner so it can be upcycled. Through recycling, their products are kept out of landfill and moved into the circular economy.
For all end of line swimwear that they’re unable to sell, they’ve partnered with Thread Together, a charity that works with brands to donate clothing to people in need. Clothing is a basic human right and sadly there are more than 3.5 million Australians who do not have access to it, which is where Thread Together come in. They collect only brand new stock from fashion retailers around the country. With the support of volunteers, the clothes are sorted in readiness to be distributed to people in need through their national network of charities and social service agencies.
Beautiful products and sustainably sourced fabric with an offer to keep the product out of landfill although why you would ever wish to part with one of their products is beyond me.
