Yes, I do have a penchant for things that are slightly exotic. And yes, I’m continually on the lookout for shops and websites that appeal to this aesthetic. I’m also very fond of Australian shops that seem to so effortlessly combine all things ethnic with a white washed-out beach look. So when I spotted Rock Ribbons I was compelled to investigate further.
The beautiful handmade gifts, accessories and homewares on this site are all eco friendly, unique and colourful. They are sourced and curated by founder Deborah Batchelor who ensures that the materials used in each handmade item are beautiful and sustainable through the use of bamboo fibre, flax, natural cotton, linen, agate stone, straw and leather.
