Travel bag, Lewes Road
Combining a love of fashion and travel and the environment, Lewes Road make beautiful recycled leather bags that will see you on weekend breaks for years to come. Made in an eco-conscious way with recycled leather and organic cotton, these bags are things of beauty that celebrate new adventures and spending time in nature.

Made from organic cotton and FSC Fairtrade certified rubber, these guys will give you a spring in your step even if you're no Jedi. Available from April (they also come as a low-rider version), put your order in now.
Organic bedding, Ecosophy
Skinny bangles, East African Trading Company
Why have one bangle if you can have lots? The East Africa Trading Company works with Ugandan artisans to create luxury items out of cow horn, which is usually burnt as waste. The brand has established a workshop of 40 artisans and feeds funds back into conservation to help the unique Ankole cow.
Cushion, National Trust
Add a touch of the handwoven to your homewares, The National Trust's new Anna Lambert collection combines a subtle geometric feel with colours inspired by the Cornish coast. The cushion is made with 100% wool on a handloom and 100% goes to conservation projects.
Men's sweatshirt, Idioma
New British design studio Greeb have been hard at working creating the perfect lamp, one that doesn't cause any waste when you're done with it. This beautiful wooden curve serves up a warm glow, plus it's made from waste products and nothing is joined permanently, meaning it can be dismantled and recycled or reused. Clever.
Dress, Thought Clothing
We love this simple dress that works as well over jeans as it does on its own from Thought Clothing. Made from bamboo and organic cotton it's as comfy as it is stylish and makes dressing in this cold weather a dream. Layer with a chunky mustard cardi and you're away.
