Founded in 2007 by designer Karen Young, Hammocks & High Tea is a home décor company that creates luxurious eco-friendly everyday products infused with a modern Caribbean aesthetic. Influenced by the designer’s South American upbringing, vivid colors and contemporary ethnic patterns permeate the collection of drawer liners, tea towels, pillows and other tabletop items.
The Spring/ Summer 2010 collection is inspired by the cultural blends that travel and trade can create and that can be found in patterns throughout the world. “The new designs embrace and meld the stories of each culture with a nod to African, Indian, and Portuguese,” says Karen. “For instance, our Portuguese tile print decorates South America as well as Turkey, and we grounded the collection with a subtle infusion of African and Indian shapes.” Each pattern forms a statement on it’s own, but can also blend seamlessly into any decor.
The products employ a tropical color palette with hues such as turquoise, coral, mango and lime, and mellowed with indigo blue and sharkskin gray. The pillows, napkins and tea towels are digitally printed on 100% certified organic cotton with non-toxic water-based inks that contain no volatile compounds. The best-selling drawer liners are printed with soy-based inks onto 100% recycled paper and lightly scented in your choice of Rose Tea, French Lavender, Mandarin Jasmine, Coriander, Amber and Patchouli Rose.
Hammocks & High Tea also introduces cloth sachets and perfume boxes this spring. A sophisticated take on potpourri, each gorgeous laser-cut perfume box is filled with herbs and flowers. Designed to scent clothing and intimates, these boxes can be used anywhere for a lovely scent. The perfume boxes will be offered in: Amber/Balsam and Lavender/ Bergamot. Amber/Basam contains sweet spices, resins, and florals and is topped off with essential oil of peru balsam. Lavender/Bergamot is a light floral scent containing florals, including jasmine, and rosemary. All ingredients are 100% certified organic.
Cloth sachets are made with 100% certified organic cotton and will be available in Lavender and Lemon Verbana. Each sachet as a loop that makes it easy to use anywhere – from your closet to the car.
