Bloomtown was born at the kitchen table of husband & wife team Preya & Med after they spent two years in Indonesia witnessing first hand the devastation caused by palm oil cultivation: the loss of virgin forest that is home to endangered orangutans, tigers and so much of the world's biodiversity. They were horrified to learn that so many of our store-bought products had palm oil lurking in their ingredients labels, sometimes in the form of SLSs, parabens, cetearyl alcohols, polysorbates and hundreds of other guises. BloomTown were the first brand in the UK to go 100% Palm Oil Free.
Inspired by their home in rugged West Cornwall, EbbFlow Cornwall founder Alice & Anna wanted to create products that were both practical & beautiful. Founded on the principle of 'less is more' EbbFlow Cornwall's range of soft, 100% cotton hammam towels are truly multi-use. Working closely with small producers on the Aegean coast of Turkey, the weaving of these traditional towels is supporting local communities & keeping an ancient craft alive. Alice & Anna love the ocean & want to gaze out to sea and know that sea life is thriving, not choking on plastic or struggling to survive climate change. They are proud to support Surfers Against Sewage in their fight to preserve the oceans for future generations #generationsea.
