Reviewed: Fabric Basket

Triangles? Polar Bears?  A print with both in subtle shades of purple, lilac, and yellow on a natural background. Luisa uses organic cotton and organic cotton canvas for this fabric basket.  A 6″ by 6″ size for storing all kinds of little things. Right now it’s holding some back-to-school supplies. But who knows what else I might use it for.

Purposeful for kids, big people, and polar bear admirers♥

Handcrafted and Eco Friendly in Holland
After 5 years working in Marketing, I decided to change gears, quit my job and stay home with my, then, 4 month old daughter. I have never looked back!Seven years, thousands of hours of sewing and two daughters later, I am still as happy to be home, look after my family and create beautiful items, made with gorgeous prints!I let the fabrics inspire me and determine what I make! I love picking out pretty and colorful fabrics and then mixing and matching them to carefully create beautiful, simple products.

Caring for the environment is very important to me and so I try to use as much eco-friendly materials as possible, be it organic or vintage fabrics or sewing notions, recycled/recyclable packaging.

How do the sides of your roads look this Spring? Mine are littered with trash. It’s a very sad reminder of how we treat our planet. And plastic bags constitute a large percentage of this roadside waste. I’m proposing a personal ban on single-use plastic shopping bags. Easy enough with a planet e bag, available in various designs to suit your style!

The Collapsible Shopping Bag. Or should I say BOX. This reusable is easy to store in the car and opens into a big useful cube (13 x 11 x 10). The reinforced bottom holds 30 lbs. It’s perfect for keeping groceries from spilling over or sliding around. I’ve also used it for miscellaneous things -like books- in addition to groceries. 

The planet e Basket. It’s made for the grocery store! Or how about a picnic?! This is my favorite replacement to plastic bags. Good for light shopping. Just set it in the cart and fill it up. From store to home, it’s easy ECO.
