Scotland-on-Sunday 'Style Bible' reviews Susiemaroon & Pure Design

Tweet this Post
Pure Design is not just about selling work, it's also about raising awareness of eco-design amongst shoppers, and raising the profiles of UK eco-designers.

Don't get me wrong, Pure Design is a business and aims to be a thriving one at that, but it is also a social enterprise, and one of our key ambitions is to show people there are beautiful, green, designer UK alternatives to mass-produced products - and to promote the designers behind this work.

This piece of press in Scotland-on-Sunday was valuable in terms of sales but also really encouraging as it shows people want to hear about beautiful eco products. It is also pleasing to see how Pure Design is able to support designers and bring their work into the limelight.

If you are an eco-designer and interested in discussing your work with Pure Design please drop us a line. I will do my best to respond to your inquiry as quickly as I can.

Sunday Times include Susiemaroon's place mats in feature 'best new design and deals for your home'

Tweet this Post Featured in Melinda Ashton Turner's article 'Inner Vision' (in the Home section of Sunday Times, July 13th 2008), Susiemaroon's place mats were named amongst the 'best new designs and deals for your home'.

We were thrilled to see that out of the designer work selected, Susie's place mats were awarded the coveted eco-design slot as the 'The Green Room' product in Melinda's feature. Well done Susie!

The place mats are made from organic calico and cotton and trimmed in vintage French lace. The mats are embellished with embroidery in one of the four motifs from Susie's Assemble range. The detail of the place mats is so attractive - we wouldn't want to cover them up! The place mats are available to order now through our gallery, priced at £24 for one, or £80 for a set of four plus p&p. Custom made, production and delivery can take up to 4-6 weeks during busy periods, although we will do our best to get them to you sooner, and will notify you when they are being posted.

Eco-designers save us!

Tweet this Post
There is certainly no accounting for taste! This water 'butt' has been featured on Eco Street....

If this doesn't demonstrate the need for more stylish eco-designers I don't know what will!!!

I don't even think I can excuse it by saying, 'at least it's eco'. Oh dear. Apparently it is available in white, tan or brown. Thank goodness it's a limited offer.

Eco-designers help us!

WWF - masters of raising awareness....(on Green TV)

Tweet this Post How do you get a nation, to consider the plight of the Portugese Eagle? Football of course!

A little different from eco design I know, but I had to recommend this fantastic clip on Green TV. Having watched the latest film covering a campaign by WWF - where top footie club Benifica 'lose' their eagle mascot, I'm hooked. Just goes to show the power of tapping into something we hold dear (be it football or wildlife) in order to get the green message across.. what an amazing campaign...
