Style and sustainability
No need to substitute style for sustainability when gorgeous eco brands like Liga are available right on our doorstep.
Organic. Recycled. Sustainable. Three little words we’re hearing a lot lately – and as a world in climate crisis enters a new decade, so we should be.
But the good news is, we don’t have to substitute style for sustainability. Take a look at these stunning little homewares beauty from Cornish brand Liga.
Liga is a small family business that’s proud to be part of the eco-awakening that’s undoubtedly happening right now.
The Earthenware Collection is a combination of cork and pottery – designed and made in Portugal where both cork and ceramics have a strong tradition. It’s cool and contemporary, and an obvious big hit for anyone who loves the ever-popular Scandi look that’s still a big interiors trend this season.
The teapot (£38) is good family size without being too big. And the clever design means it pours well – without leaking – and keeps tea warm with the insulating cork. On a practical level, the cork and ceramic comes apart, so cleaning is a doddle.
Obviously you can’t have a teapot without mugs! And we love the chic and unfussy designs of these ones (£11 each) which come in cream and storm grey. We’d go for a combination of both colour combinations – partly because we can’t decide which we like most, and partly because you can never have too many mugs. Handily, the cork works to keep your drink hotter for longer – so no tepid tea.
Another favourite from the collection is this fruit bowl (£42).
