Communities make the world better. From our commitment to fair trade, to finding the best small, family owned businesses and supporting life changing organisations; the Whollygrail Store gives you peace of mind for quality and integrity. – Whollygrail.
In a world where the environment suffers for our wants and needs, we can help remove some of the strain by making smarter choices when it comes to buying both decorative and functional items for our home. Empowering people with knowledge is an important factor to helping us understand the issue and make the effort to purchase more wisely. For this blog, I not only have the pleasure of interviewing an Australian company whose sole purpose is to produce and distribute these items, but also try out, style and share some of the range with you guys. But first, a little bit about the amazing Australian small business making waves with their affordable, eco and fair trade friendly home and body products.
Whollygrail was created by #girlboss Danielle to inspire conscious choices for our every day decisions, simply because that’s where we can make the biggest impact for our health and the biggest change for the planet. Based in Mona Vale NSW, Danielle, who is a Mum, nutritionist and passionate health advocate, created Whollygrail which focuses on personal care products, sheets, towels, kitchen linen and baby wear for their first edition range. The Whollygrail range contains no nasties and are produced by small scale family owned, Australian businesses. Their textile range is GOTS certified organic and made from fair trade cotton and theres no use of chemicals or pesticides in the making of their products which means no nasties against your skin. Quite often body care items can contain chemicals and toxic ingredients which have been linked to a variety of health issues in people’s systems. Whollygrails personal care range is completely chemical free so you know its safe for you and your families skin. The two products I will be working with for this blog are the Bedding in a Bag Sheet set, in colour stone. And the 7 piece Towel set which is also in the stone colour.
Whollygrail prides themselves in not only environmentally friendly produced products, but also ones that are well made and perform well too. And you can tell that both their towel set and bedding range is of the best quality and is going to last. The towels are thick, heavy and made with the finest quality organic and fair trade Indian cotton offering ultimate softness and absorbency. The set consists of two bath towels, two hand towels and two wash cloths, with a beautifully soft 900gsm foot towel for ultimate in luxury. My favourite piece in the set is the oversized hand towels. The perfect size for drying big hands and little hands which need washing multiple times a day! The stone colour is the perfect neutral tone for my bathroom and adds just the right pop of colour against our white tiles. The set is also available in a charcoal and linen colour. Whollygrail also stock beach towels and a range of other eco friendly bathroom items including bamboo toothbrushes, vegan makeup brushes and hand-cut soaps.
I’ve said it before, I am not a huge fan of folding fitted sheets. I can not do it. I will never master it and have resorted to hiding those sheets in the back of the linen cupboard to hide my shame. So I was quite excited when I saw that the Whollygrail sheet set range comes in a matching drawstring bag which, I can hide my fitted sheet in! Hoorah! This isn’t the only thing I love about these 300 thread count 100% organic and fair trade Indian cotton sheets. The fitted sheet is a deep base fit which means that it is as larger than average fitted sheets and therefore can be used for pillow tops and mattresses with thicker depths. The sheet sets are available in white or the stone colour I have used and come in all sizes from single to king. They not only feel great, but look amazing as well. As with the towel set, you can tell by the feel that the sheets are of great quality and are worth investing in as you know you will have them for years to come. Whollygrail also stock a gorgeous range of cot sheets, along with other baby items including rompers and onsies which you can find on their website.
Opting for items which are better for the planet doesn’t mean forking out huge amounts of money or losing quality and style. Quite the opposite. Purchasing products such as those from Whollygrail guarantee you well made, on trend pieces which are available at a suitable price point. They are items that are worth investing in and which you will get your money out of for years to comr.
