When is shopping Sustainable?
Sustainable shopping recognises that everything we buy has health, environmental and social impact.
It is no longer possible to live in a world full of waste. More and more shops are recognising the need for reduction of packaging but not many are reusing materials for the creation of new items. At Comtesse de Marliave our silks are preloved, they are handpicked and cleaned in order to be able to reuse the materials for our creations. The process can be long but even the smallest gestures can make a huge impact to our planet. Pure silk accessories for our pendants and FunkY JunK items have been pre-loved.
In this picture is a mens tie, to be precise a tie with the number 15 on it is the ' Quinze du stade de Toulouse ' a disused rugby tie. From this one tie ,at least 4 FunkY JunK bracelets can be created. As the FunkY Junk range is the 'coupe de coeur' of this company the prices will always be at their lowest.
