Fair Trade Storage Solutions from Olli Ella – That you can Win!

Olli Ella Fair Trade Storage SolutionsYou can never have enough storage.

If you’ve lived in a home that resembles the ones I’ve occupied over the past few years, storage is always an issue. In my humble opinion, no bedroom should ever exist without a built-in wardrobe and no hallway should be without a linen press. And yet I’ve found myself without both of these precious inclusions a few times before.

Looking to stylish storage solutions is the only answer in situations like this, and when there’s a fair trade ethos attached to them – even better. Which, if you’ll excuse the worst segue in the world, brings me to the storage solutions in today’s post, courtesy of divine homewares brand Olli Ella.

Olli Ella is the brainchild of sisters Chloe and Olivia Brookman. The brand was born in London town back in 2009 and it has not long hit our shores thanks to Chloe’s move to Sydney with her family.

The brand, at first glance, tends to skew toward baby homewares and kids decor, but if you ask me, so many of the pieces have versatility written all over them. There are no kids at my place (unless you count the cats) but I’d implement these hand-woven storage baskets into my rooms in an instant! The smaller belly baskets, for example, would look diviiine with a pot plant in them (rocking an indoor plant is so very on-trend right now).

“Making sure that our producers adhere to fair trade practices is essential for our company,” the girls tell me, when I ask them why this aspect of their biz is so important. “Whenever possible we try to manufacture locally and use sustainable and recycled materials, FSC certified wood (with our furniture), and water-based dyes (for our bedding and textiles)”.

Of course, there is so much more to this homewares brand than just baskets. They also stock art, bedding, chairs, rugs and a whole lot more.

  1. These baskets would be great to control the shoe and bag clutter in my entrance and to stash away some toddler toys. Love!

  2. I am so in love with these baskets and they would find a loving place in my home
    They are natural and beautiful and they need to be seen and shown
    One natural belly basket would be used to store my newest hobby you see
    Knitting – natural organic wool and bamboo knitting needles would sit in this oh so perfectly
    The other natural belly basket would be used in my children’s room to store their current favourite books for reading at bed time
    As they would treasure this natural basket though probably wrap bright bits of material around it and think it utterly sublime.
    The yellow teepee basket would sit oh so divinely next to my lounge where it would stand out and be right at home
    As it would be used for storing my bamboo/cotton rugs and throws that often end up on the floor each day which makes me groan and moan.
    So as you can see I have the most perfect uses for these natural baskets yippee
    And if they came to live in my home I would be oh so very giddily happy 🙂

  3. Basket perfection! My main bedroom is yellow and in need of a stylish hamper! The other two gems will find there way to being a new plant holder & the other a catcher of things!

  4. The larger basket would be perfect to store all the kids shoes that always end up at the front door. The smaller ones look so versatile, maybe I’d use one on my kitchen bench to collect all the bits and pieces that end up there and the other as a fruit bowl.

  5. I could definitely use one of these gorgeous baskets in my ensuite for all of my laundry! No more washing all over the floor!
