My new Organic Range has been borne.

I had had interest in the new Pencil Pouch range from various Eco friendly peeps, but as soon as I said the fabric wasn't organic, it was a thumbs down.

It was only when I was using some of my collection of beautiful Cloud 9 fabrics, that the penny dropped. These were organic and would work fantastically. The cotton is so crisp and holds it's shape so well, that it's a dream to work with and looks good. And on top of that the designs are just scrummy too.

So with reinforcements received and swatch of the options to hand, I got going on a collection to offer.

I'm using the dotties as linings for all, which I'm loving the look of. Obviously you can't see them when they are closed and all together. But I know they are there and that gives me a lovely feeling to know how well coordinated they are. Sad I know.

Because they are heading out to an eco friendly stockist, not only are the fabrics organic but the trimmings are the vintage ones I have been using, adhering to the recycled element of green living.

The first of my Organic Range pouches are now heading out to the lovely Eco Eco. Eco Eco is a stylish boutique that promotes green living through it's lovely collection of ethical and environmentally produced products. Eco Eco is based in the beautiful Peak District, but if you aren't lucky enough to be able to visit in person, you can peruse their collection online.

I am really excited and proud to be able to produce more ethical products and am looking forward to doing a lot more in the future.

If you are an environmentally aware stockist and are interested in my Organic Range, I'd love to hear from you.

They look lovely and the linings will be well appreciated by whoever uses the purse in the end, after all they're going to be looking inside every time they use it!

They look fantastic Karen! I'm sure these will fly off the shelves x

They look absolutely lovely. I'm in the process of putting together some fairly obsessively organic products, and being careful to source everything from tissue paper to fabric to postage materials in organic/recycled materials is seriously time consuming! Can't wait to have it all done though, in a way that satisfies my inner eco-geek.

Congratulations Karen - they really are fabulous :) and I'm totally with you on the lining - so perfect and not sad in any way! ;) I'm sure they'll sell like hotcakes. Kx

Lovely as usual!

I love the combinations, like the peach polka lining with the peach, blue and brown trees!

Will they be on the Eco Eco site? If so, let me know when they are so I can promote them on my blog...
