The softest towels on the internet!

16 Feb

Bamboo fabric is very soft and can be worn directly next to the skin. Many people who experience allergic reactions to other natural fibres, such as wool or hemp, do not complain of this issue with bamboo. The fibre is naturally smooth and round without chemical treatment, meaning that there are no sharp spurs to irritate the skin. So our silky soft turkish towels make the best kids towels.

Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of the bamboo grass. Bamboo fabric has been growing in popularity because it has many unique properties and is more sustainable than most textile fibres. Bamboo fabric is light and strong, has excellent wicking properties, and is to some extent antibacterial.

In many textile forms, bamboo retains many of the properties it has as a plant. Bamboo is highly water absorbent, able to take up three times its weight in water. In bamboo fabric, this translates to an excellent wicking ability that will pull moisture away from the skin so that it can evaporate.

These large kids beach towels are an exclusive design and fibre mix (bamboo and cotton) to Rock Ribbons. Soft, lightweight and absorbent and with ten fun stripy shades, kids can pick their favourite colour.

New products in store :: Eco Friendly Retro Wooden Sunglasses

9 Aug

I have a fabulous new product in the ‘Eco Fashion Accessories’ section in store which I love wearing myself and I hope you will too? Introducing beautiful eco friendly natural grain wood and bamboo frame sunglasses for women with high quality spring hinges, round and smooth edges and comfortable nose pad.

All of the sunglasses in store utilise 100% UVA/UVB Polarized lenses. The difference between a standard lens and a polarised lens can be seen in the polarised lens’ ability to almost eliminate the glare that is created by the sun’s reflection on flat, reflective surfaces like glass and water. The polarised lens produces a more clear image, accurate image.

My handmade retro eyewear has been inspired by vintage styles of days gone by and the Australian outdoor life, long hot summers and enjoying life by the ocean.

There are three retro wood shades to choose from in store, Rich Rosewood, Dark Walnut and Black Bamboo. All of ‘Rock Ribbons’ sunglasses are handcrafted and use high quality materials, natural wood or bamboo, polarised lenses and stainless steel spring hinges.

I hope you enjoy wearing your ‘Rock Ribbons’ retro wood frame sunglasses this summer!

 

 

I’m making it ‘Pozible’!

10 Jul

What is ‘Pozible’, I hear you asking?

Pozible is a crowdfunding platform and community-building tool for creative projects and ideas. It was developed to help people raise funds, realise their aspirations and make great things possible.Crowdfunding with Pozible is a way for motivated makers to access funding beyond ‘official’ channels by talking directly to switched-on consumers, fans, peers and like-minded strangers.

How does it work?

Pozible provides the platform for project creators to present their ideas to a connected audience, worldwide. If people love what you’re creating, they can support it by pledging money.In return, project creators offer rewards matched to the level of funding commitment.Pozible can also be a gateway for discovering and supporting inspirational projects and thinkers directly. By becoming actively involved in bringing more attention to bold new ideas, art, products and the talented people who conceive them, project supporters become a vital part of a true creative community.

I’ve created a ‘Pozible’ campaign and I need your help.

BEAUTIFUL BAMBOO BLANKETS FOR BABY!

When it comes to gifts and essentials for those tiny bundles of joy, you need something really special. It has to be beautiful, colourful, unique, natural, durable, washable and above all super soft. And I have an idea for a lovely product that will meet all those requirements! I would love (with your help) to produce a range of organic cotton and natural bamboo bassinete blankets and cot blankets for retail and wholesale. These beautiful blankets will be double sided for warmth and comfort, with snuggly thick bamboo fleece on one side and certified soft organic cotton on the other.

To produce and purchase materials wholesale to make my cuddly, eco friendly and organic blankets I need to raise funds of about $1000 and that’s where you and ‘Pozible’ come in.
