While Tasha and Barney were travelling through Asia, they came across fishing rope made from unravelled plastic bottles and were instantly inspired. With 35 billion plastic bottles in our seas and landfill, they explored ways that the material could be given a second life within our homes and gardens.

Their products are top quality and fit for royalty as The Duchess of Cornwall enjoys a few of their products in her home at Clarence House and recently visited their showroom to learn how plastic is recycled to look and feel exactly like wool.
