KNITTED CARDIGAN MADE FROM SUSTAINABLE COTTON BY THE WOTE
WHY TO BUY: WOTE strives to harmonise sustainably and fairly produced clothing with design, quality and timelessness – all of which are combined in this timeless, short cardigan made from 100% sustainable cotton. The material is characterised by its super cosy feel and is also kind to the environment. The cotton comes from Italian manufacturer Stambecco SRL and has been carefully selected to fulfil the highest standards of environmental, social and ethical responsibility. The ribbed structure gives the cardigan a pleasant texture and durability.
WHAT WE LOVE: WOTE specifically uses organic cotton as the main material for its knitwear, as it is not only particularly easy to care for, but also guarantees an exceptionally long lifespan for timeless essentials.
This knitted cardigan is a stylish must-have because it can be worn for any occasion. Whether cosy at home, elegant with a top, a striped shirt or as an upgrade for a business look. The minimalist design and “en vogue” cream colour offer versatile combination options. The elegant ribbed texture and slight box cut not only create a casual silhouette, but also add a subtle, sophisticated touch. The pretty stone nut buttons are a particular eye-catcher, adding a unique and natural accent.
SILK PILLOWCASES FOR A BETTER SLEEP BY SLEEP IN BEAUTY
Why to buy: Silk is proven to offer anti-ageing properties due to its natural smooth surface which glides against your skin and absorbs very little moisture from your skin, unlike cotton. This is the mission of Sleep In Beauty, SIB, a British brand independently female-owned. SIB silk produces the highest quality, ultra-luxurious, eco-conscious silk pillowcases, scrunchies and eye masks for beautiful bouncy hair, skin and overall amazing quality of sleep.
Sleep In Beauty silk products are cut from the same cloth, offering the highest quality silk in the market. Their silk is sustainable and offers a small carbon footprint in comparison to synthetic materials. It also degrades naturally over time unlike satin materials and other synthetic fibers which will accumulate in landfills for years to come!
What we love: Sleep In Beauty’s core values are based on the ethos of good quality sleep, healthy skin and beautiful hair simply by implementing one small change to your bedtime routine. The brand was created by biochemist Nassima Mokri in 2019. Her keen interest for health and beauty created the brands values and mission.
In 2010 a holiday to Australia opened Nassima’s eyes to a beauty secret which needed to be shared across the world. Silk pillowcases are a huge deal in the beauty world over there, it is rare to find anyone who sleeps on cotton! After swapping her own pillowcase for a silk pillowcase, the results were an game changer. Her skin was instantly smoother, brighter and really helped to reduce acne instantly.

WHAT WE LOVE: The Hessen smock is an important part of the Hessian costume and was worn by both men and women. In HELENA HARFST interpretation, they gave the simple “peasant shirt” a more feminine silhouette and dipped it in summery pink. Nostalgic and yet modern. And in our opinion: extremely versatile. Try it out yourself!
It is made of 100% organic cotton from European production and processed in their studio in Hesse. Every Hessian smock is handmade and there is Hessian passion in it.

The smiley has two sparkling laboratory diamonds as eyes and hangs on a delicately shiny chain made from 18-carat recycled gold. It is individually adjustable in three lengths, so you can wear it in the trendy choker style or casually a little longer.
From the first of December 23, every time you buy one of our smiling pieces of their jewellery, The Good Bling will donate 3% to the Earthbeat Foundation, an organization that promotes sustainable gold mining and provides a new livelihood for miners.

THE BIG BOOK OF SELF-REFLECTION (ONLY IN GERMAN)
WHY TO BUY: Do you really know yourself? In a world that is becoming increasingly hectic, it is not a matter of course to think about ourselves extensively.

It is precisely this space that “The Big Book of Self-Reflection” creates. It brings you 100 techniques from the world of mindfulness and psychology that invite you to slow down and get back in touch with yourself.
WHAT WE LOVE: We have read it and it works! We loved it! The Big Book of Self-Reflection is the follow-up to the SPIEGEL bestseller “The Big Book of Good Thoughts”.
