Fair Trade Storage Solutions from Olli Ella – That you can Win!
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.
And if you’d like to score yourself three lovely storage baskets from the girls, check out the competition below.
