Sharing the Spotlight!

I was thrilled to see Reiter8's Blue 8 tote was part of a fantastic list of eco chic items guest curated by Style at Home's Laurie Grassi over on Etsy's Handmade Blog: The Storque.

The stark, graphic quality of this tote from Reiter8 really makes it shine. Crafted from upcycled sailboat sails, the tote’s number is appliqued on the front and red organic cotton lines the inside, which is divided into three sections so you can easily organize all your gear.

Thanks Laurie! In addition to being the executive editor for Canadian magazine, Style at Home, she writes the Natural Chic blog. Well worth checking out.

I loved all her picks but particularly drawn to the brights:

White record bowl by vinylrocksmyworld

100% recycled felt appliqué pillow from alexandraferguson

Recycled can night light by MariposaAvenue

My favorite from the group are the organic linen napkins by natsuminishizumi. They are hand-screenprinted using water-based inks, and 5% of the profits go to Friends Without a Border, a charity that provides medical care to children in Cambodia. Nice.
