We are so happy to be joined this week for this instalment of 5 Good Things by Theresa Bachler from SiRA (Sewing Is Real Art). Theresa’s business sells sewing kits for you to create your own beautiful, sustainable pieces, from espadrilles to gym bags. Theresa’s aim is to reduce the waste that occurs as part of the fashion manufacturing process, and to give people a chance to develop an enjoyable and relaxing new skill. Influenced by Scandi style and the Japanese simple aesthetic, SiRA’s pieces are understated yet stylish. Each sewing package comes complete with ready-cut fabric, any additional materials and detailed instructions, for everyone from beginners to more experienced crafters. We thought you’d love to hear what inspires Theresa and her mission to move towards a more sustainable way of living and consuming.
It might seem strange to be writing a guide to taking a bath, but we’ve recently discovered the Japanese art of mindful bathing. And it’s pretty blissful. A bath is the perfect time to take a moment out of your busy day to reset and unwind. Instead of reading a book or listening to a podcast or the radio, try this mindful approach and feel the benefits for your mind as well as your body. Here’s how to have the most relaxing, rejuvenating bath, whether you’re hibernating indoors on an Autumn evening or setting off for a day’s work.
This week on 5 Good Things we are so excited to be joined by Bina from StryleTZ. Bina is known for her gorgeous style, blending a minimalist look with a real love of great quality pieces. She also has a strong belief in the need for ethical consumption and fair trade. Following a vegan, sustainable lifestyle is important to Bina, and her blog is full of insights and inspiration if you are interested in changing your habits or looking for style ideas. For Bina what’s important is passing on a healthy world for her daughter, and for all our children. She doesn’t see sustainability and style as mutually exclusive, and wants to show her readers that there’s another, less damaging, form of consumption. You can see why we thought she would be a great fit for our blog!
