Sustainable shopping shouldn't be hard but sadly sometimes it's just not easy to find super quality sustainable pieces. As much as we don't want to throw our products in peoples faces, you are on the Aqua & Rock site so we are going to show you exactly what we have to offer. Here is our Christmas Gift Guide:
Dresses, this is a gift to yourself!
It's definitely a strange time of year and normally we may be looking for a new outfit to wear to our Christmas parties but sadly those might be limited this year. However we do believe in the longevity of our clothing so even if you fancy picking up a dress from us this year, it will last you for next years celebrations too.
If you fancy a classic black dress that can be reinvented with different accessories then our Ionian Black Dress is just perfect. This dress has a heavy feel to the fabric so falls perfectly around the body.
If you dare to be different and want to wow with colour then our Leila Lemon Dress could definitely be the one for you.
Another show stopping dress would be our Gianna green dress. This dress could be dressed up with a stunning pair of heels and easily dressed down with some ankle boots. Making it a versatile piece for any Christmas event.
We have a range of seasonal scarves that are can worn in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Our sustainable scarves are made from a mix of different fabrics including our very own sustainable fabric "Aqua Triblend". Aqua Triblend is a mix of recycled plastic bottles, organic cotton and upcycled clothes. To find out more information about the story behind our sustainable fabrics head to our science page here: https://aqua-rock.com/pages/science
Our first scarf is our Nautical Pink and White striped scarf. What I love about this scarf most is that it's great for keeping you warm in water but because of it's size it's perfect to use as a shawl on those cool summer evenings too. This scarf is also available in blue and white stripes.
Our Pacific Patch Scarf is made from our very own sustainable fabric "Aqua Triblend". The fabric is extremely soft and strong giving you a sustainable piece that will last you for winters to come. The scarf features a stunning block colour design that embodies a nautical style.
If your looking for something with a splash of festive colour to it our Rigger Red Striped Scarf will do the trick.
You can't go wrong when it comes to buying a bag for a Christmas gift. We have a range of sustainable bags made from recycled leather, pressed Oak and Hay even featuring some dazzling Swarovski Crystals.
If you are after something to really give brownie points this Christmas then why not treat your loved one to our Swarovski Crystal Rock & Rose Francis Bags. This luxury bag is made from recycled leather, pressed oak, hay and petals then embellished with delicate Swarovski Crystals. You can use the use the bag as a handbag with it's sturdy, burgundy handles or as a shoulder bag with it's embossed shoulder strap.
If you think your loved one may prefer a darker bag than we have our stunning Large Leather Tote Bag that is made out of 100% recycled leather. The bag has so much room for all your belongings that it would be perfect for a day to day bag. It would easily fit a laptop in along with your other daily essentials.
One of our most stunning new pieces to hit our website is our beautiful Blue Biscay Cushioned Bag. The bag is made from 100% sustainably sourced recycled Tencel. Tencel is great for absorbing and retaining colour which gives us this stunning bold blue shade to the bag.
With the majority of us spending most of our year at home it's not surprise that everyone is thinking of ways to spruce up their home. And a vast majority have had to create a new office from home too. Interiors are a great Christmas gift because they are generally a helpful gift. Unless perhaps you go and buy a ridiculous red Rudolph lamp!
Our newest lamp to our sustainable Brownstone Luxury Lamp has been created out of marble, sustainably sourced Alpine Oak Wood and cables made from natural fibres. The lamp is ideal to sustainably style up your office or even for a bedside table.
Now this is a bit of a larger option so you may need to check that they need a floor lamp first. This stunning Tripod Oak and Hay Floor Lamp sits beautifully in any home or office as it blends with other natural interiors such as plants, wood floors or tables. This unique lamp is handmade in Austria giving you the luxury of knowing no one else will have exactly the same lamp.
If you love the idea of the Tripod Lamp for a present but you feel it might just be a little too big, we've actually also have a small Tripod Oak and Hay Lamp that would be perfect for a bedroom or lounge. The same design at the floor lamp but with shorter legs. This Scandinavian style lamp is not only sustainable but also handcrafted.
Now footwear is a perfect present for Christmas but I strongly advise to root around a few pairs of the persons shoes your buying for so you get their size right. We do offer exchanges or refunds at Aqua & Rock so if by chance the footwear doesn't fit you can send them back to us. We have also extended our returns until 2 weeks after Christmas for any unwanted presents or exchanges.
Our first pair of trainers is our staple White Elka Sneakers. You actually can't go wrong with a pair of white sneakers for a present because they are so versatile and easy to wear. The white sneakers are made from 100% recycled leather and recycled rubber. They have extremely good grip on the bottom and the insoles are made out of Aloe Vera so designed to be extremely comfy against your foot.
Now if you love the idea of a pair of sneakers but want something a bit more fancy then why not pick from our selection of art sneakers. Our Green Garden sneakers are inspired by dutch painter, Hieronymus Bosch. The printed sides of the trainers are created using recycled plastic bottles too!
If the person your buying for isn't really a sneaker lover we also have some all black Ankle boots that would be perfect for everyday wear. They are made out of recycled leather, recycled rubber with Aloe Vera insoles for comfort. They price point is slightly lower than the sneakers also.
