WHY I LOVE THEM
Libby is so passionate about this beautiful eco-friendly brand. We have wanted to work together for so long but it seems that every time we tried to make the move something stood in our way. Finally our stars have aligned!
The Cocoon rage is made from beautiful cottons. A textile I love. I appreciate Libby's respect for South Africa and the need to support our people, and the fact that she sources her cotton locally despite the many challenges our textile industry faces inspires me.
This brand makes small, but bold, steps towards developing a range that is made to last, is versatile and is of course beautiful!
I am so excited to watch them grow.
FAVOURITE FINDS FROM THEIR LATEST COLLECTION
THE BELIEVE DRAWSTRING
THE PERFECT PACKING PARTNER.
100% African seedcloth
Cotton tape drawstring
3 size gorgeous drawstring bags.
The large bag is the ultimate produce bag,
the medium is a great little on the go storage bag and the small is the perfect jewellery or essential oils gift bag.
I have a similar cotton bag in the medium size and I keep it in my weekend bag so that every time I pack I remember my underwear! Yes I have forgotten it once or twice in an incredible rush.
I love that it also keeps your intimates in one, easy to find place so there is no unnecessary digging and creasing of garments.
Any of these are so useful when packing especially for long trips! And you know we need one of those right about now.
S - 8cmx12 cm
M - 15cmx17cm
L - 25cmx31cm
THE CAR BOOT BAG
100% local cotton.
100% cotton webbing handles.
Designed to fit into your trolley or your car boot as your “throw everything in” bag.
This is what I need. I literally forget my shopping bags every time I go to the shops and end up having to buy more. It is such a pain, and I only remember as I drive into the parking lot. In hindsight, I should probably force myself to drive home and fetch them until I learn to cooperate and remember the damn things.
However, I would imagine that the Mega would be hard to forget. I love that it is so big and is likely to fit most of my groceries. Whether or not I could carry them all into the house in that one bag, is another story entirely.
The Mega comes in 3 lovely cotton shades and if not used for groceries has many other handy applications. Think weekends away and days at the beach.
GREAT GIFTING/ECO-FRIENDLY DECOR
If you are planning on purchasing your bestie a plant why not pop it in a Cocoon soft pot. I adore the beautiful texture of the cream cotton and this neutral will fit seamlessly into any home.
You also have the choice of Blue or Grey should you want something with a little colour.
These cotton soft pots don't only pair well with plants. You can store toiletries, baby goodies, stationery and more in them to make things neat and tidy.
A lovely neutral addition to your fabulous home,
100% local cotton
