If you're a parent, you may know that healthy eating is often an uphill battle when it comes to our kids' food preferences. Carrots and broccoli may not be their preferred choice. That is what sparked this Lorena Canals and Oli & Carol collaboration! What better way to make veggies fun than turning them into a colourful and decorative wall hanging? This Lorena Canals Oli & Carol Veggies Wall Hanging features handmade cotton carrots and radishes hanging from a cotton covered wooden stick, creating an interesting feature for the wall or over the bed.
Oli & Carol is a young company from Barcelona that specialises in cool, natural toys for modern parents and kids. Their core belief is in taking care of the environment by offering natural, sustainable products that follow an artisanal handmade process. They also happen to be Lorena Canals' daughters, which makes this a family collaboration!
It started with one simple question that perhaps a lot of us parents have: 'Why can't we wash our kids' Rugs at home? That was enough to set Lorena Canals on a journey to come up with a solution. Lorena Canals started her company to fill the void of modern day living. Her Rug designs are stylish and practical. Made from 100% cotton, her Rug collection is machine-washable and is the new standard in the world of Rug design.
28 years later, Lorena Canals now operates out of offices in Barcelona and New York. Their Rugs are manufactured in two of their very own facilities in India where they have full control of the quality and best practices. Their designers work side by side with 120 artisans who take care of every detail in an elaborate handmade process. The brand prides itself on quality in every aspect of production, from the finest raw materials to socially responsible labour practices. Nowadays, Lorena Canals products are found worldwide in more than 2,500 points of sale, making its products available in more than 40 countries. Their offerings have expanded to include Home Decoration serving both children and grown-ups! A nursery funded by the SAKULA PROJECT now has 120 boys and girls attending and continues to grow year after year.
As you're probably aware, cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the cotton plant and grows commonly all over the world. It is a renewable and eco-friendly material that is easy to clean and maintain. Cotton offers an unparalleled feeling of softness, comfort and warmth.
