Going completely plastic-free might sound impossible in 2019, but #plasticfreejuly is about trying to - for just 31 days - and then continuing those habits year-round. Easing into a plastic-free life can be a smooth transition too, and the smallest of every items can have the biggest of impacts.

The centuries-old Indian art of hand-block printing is amidst a revival. It's a traditional Rajasthani way of life and an income source for the hundreds of communities in the area.

Helen Atcheson isn't concerned with trends or fads, contrary to the popular fashion model. She is inspired by all things natural, and her designs reflect the balmy days and sticky nights of her Western Australia lifestyle where some winter days are a beautiful 29 degrees. In that kind of environment, linen is a must, and it's the only fabric Helen chooses to use in her range.
