New at Bliss : ECOLOGY kitchenware

One of our more exciting finds at the gift fairs last month was the Ecology serving and kitchenware range. The classic white ceramics mixed with gorgeous acacia wood pieces caught our eye immediately and we just knew we needed them in the shop. Why? Well there were several reasons. Firstly, It’s the kind of range that will fit easily with whatever taste or style you my already have in your home. Secondly, as the name suggests, all the materials used to make the products, including the packaging, are ecologically responsible and designed with our earth’s future in mind. They are made in energy-efficient factories and are virtually free of chemicals. Thirdly, we were genuinely surprised at the price, considering the style, quality and finish.

So, let me tell you a bit about some of our favourite pieces. First, there’s the 4 piece ‘Seasons’ mug set featuring a different tree illustration on each mug to represent the four seasons ($24.95 a set). Then there’s my personal favourite, the Acacia wood bowls, platters, salad servers and cheese boards. Acacia is a fast-growing hardwood that is extremely durable and naturally resistant to water, but besides all that practical stuff they just look GOOD! Salad servers are $9.95, large salad bowls only $59.95. Lastly, the set of 3 nested bowls are pretty, stylish and only $24.95 a set.

These are just a few of our favourites from the Ecology range (oh look, who are we kidding, we kinda like them all) so if they sound like your kinda thing too then come visit us for a looksee. Selected lines available in our online store also.
