Our aim is to make products which are well designed, useful and reusable. Here is some inspiration for you from our signature moodboards.
If you are a consumer, head over to our shop to see our latest items. We encourage you to first reuse whatever you have already and only purchase items that are of real need to you or for anyone you might be gifting to.
If you are a brand or a business, and you want specific branded items, then we will work with you through our partner factory Supreme Creations on mass production. Do email your brief at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to one of the SC team (www.supreme-creations.co.uk)
If you are looking to switch to more reusable and sustainable packaging options for your business, then THAT IS GREAT. According to WRAP (Waste Recycling Action Programme UK) Around 40% of plastic is used in packaging and the UK generates around 2.4 million tonnes per year of packaging waste. Of this, around 1.7 million tonnes is from households.
We have a variety of options to cut out single-use plastic through our fabric options such as drawstring bags, duster bags, zip pouches, and fabric wraps.
