In our current social climate, a trend has emerged where people are rejecting the low-quality products that are mass-produced by giant conglomerates, and are gravitating towards unique pieces – pieces that are friendly to the environment, that are made with care with little waste, and equally importantly, pieces that have a sense of authenticity to them. This is where slow-fashion was born.

You’ve heard the term thrown around at dinner parties, the Cape Town markets are adorned with vendors selling these slow-fashion items and big retailers are even producing capsule collections in the same spirit. But, does it have to end with fashion? No, it doesn’t.

Beagle + Basset, Cape Town-based linenware studio, has a beautiful range of eco-conscious, naturally dyed linenware that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with. Made from raw cotton & linen, their napkins are dyed with the extracts of raw materials like blue gum bark, avocado stones and fynbos, leaving the garments vibrantly unique with each run.

BEAGLE + BASSET IS AN ECO-CONSCIOUS DESIGN STUDIO, PASSIONATE ABOUT THE ANCIENT PRACTICE OF NATURAL DYEING ACHIEVED WITH PLANT MATTER, HARVESTED IN SOUTH AFRICA.

Their current range of linenware comes in colours, Karoo, Overberg, Lowveld and Cederberg – making for a perfect nature-inspired colour palette.

But, it doesn’t end there. They’ve recently started making linen clothing, re-usable eco-friendly cotton makeup remover pads, and even a natural laundry detergent to take care of your delicate raw pieces.
