Slow living originates from the slow food movement. This movement was founded by Carlos Petrini in 1986, as a protest against the opening of a Mcdonald’s opposite the Spanish Steps in Rome. The slow food movement is all about treasuring traditional and regional food and the sustainable production of food, opposed to fast food chains. These days, the movement has branched out into many slow movements, like slow fashion, slow travel and slow parenting.
How do I apply slow living to my interior?
Slow shopping is about shopping more consciously. When you buy something, ask yourself: Will I still like this next year? Will it last me at least a year? By choosing quality products, like a linen tablecloth instead of a vinyl tablecloth, the things you buy will last you a lifetime.
Choosing sustainable and / or handmade products
When purchasing new items for your interior, pay attention to how they are produced. How much impact does the production process have on the environment? Our exclusive linen is produced sustainably: flax thrives in natural soil and requires little water. Our linen is also produced locally in Belgium, thus causing little pollution from transport.
