AN ORAMAI GUIDE TO...
Styling our Boyfriend Shirt:
Our boyfriend shirt was designed with both versatility and timelessness in mind, making it equally suited to a day at the beach as it is to a night in the town. We love it paired with our Nomade shorts for an effortlessly elegant daytime look, or with our Nomade suit for a more sophisticated style. The opportunities are endless.
5 SUSTAINABLE NEWS WE LOVED THIS WEEK
We’re always excited when Pandora announces a new collection, but this time it’s even better: striving to meet their goal of being carbon neutral by 2025, the jeweller has abandoned mined diamonds in favour of their more sustainable counterpart, lab-grown diamonds. If you needed another excuse to buy more jewellery, this one’s for you.
The haircare brand that prioritises sustainability without compromising on quality is our new favourite addition for a greener beauty routine. With bottles made from recycled plastic and powder-to-lather shampoos that require little to no water, Susteau is changing the face of sustainable beauty.
03/ SONEVA FUSHI
The perfect eco-luxury getaway. Soneva is the original desert hideaway in the Maldives, with luxury villas on a private island, but also a resort with sustainability at the core of its ethos - the sustainable traveller’s dream. We’ll see you there.
04/ GERWURZTRAMINER: THE SUSTAINABLE WINE
Produced by Yealands Wines, this delicate but rich white wine, produced with only natural pest control measures and fuelled by solar energy, doesn’t cost the earth. If you ask us, there’s nothing better than a guilt-free glass of wine.
We’re always on the hunt for the best sustainable products for our homes, and this artisan home decor brand is a game changer. Ames collaborates with local Colombian craftspeople to bring their handmade goods, made from natural materials like palm fibres and terracotta, to a broader market.
REASONS TO LOVE LINEN
The wetter it gets, the better.
Flax fabrics become stronger on wetting, meaning that line is actually strengthened when being washed, resulting in greater longevity than, for example, cotton. Over time, the fabric will become even softer and even more comfortable, so you don't have to worry about the quality fading - it will only get better.
