As urban dwellers, it can be difficult to find space to exercise our green thumbs. Urbio is a magnetic system that will help us transform any wall or ferrous surface into a beautiful vertical garden.

 

Each pot is made of eco-plastic and is equipped with large neodymium magnets that are strong enough to hold almost anything to the wall. The wall plates are modular, and can easily be mounted to any wall.  Mount just one Urbio pot, or fill your wall with them.

 

Alternatively, each pot comes with its own individual puck that can be used to mount to the wall.  These pucks can also be used to attach pots together for a nice centerpiece.

 

Urbio keeps it fun and light with great names for the individual hanging wall pots.

Bholu is now at Jack + Jade Home

News Comments Off

 

Jack + Jade Home is proud to announce our newest addition to our great family, Bholu.

 

Bholu is the work of Australian designer Jodie Fried. The Bholu philosophy is about creating beautiful products that we love and live with, while benefiting communities we work with along the way.

 

With designs that are bold and free, it is Bholu’s childlike simplicity that gave the label its intriguing name – a Katchchhi word, describing a term of endearment and also the naivety and free expression of a small child.

 

Bholu products are brought to life by traditional artisans from rural and urban communities in India. Each piece is individually hand embroidered or handwoven using ancient techniques, giving each product its own unique and original personality. By using their traditional skills, the artisans gain an income, hence independence and opportunity as well as keeping a traditional craft alive.

 

 

 

Part proceeds from the sales of the Bholu collection go back to the Bholu Anganwadi Project which has now built a total of 8 pre schools with Architects Without Frontiers Australia, in underprivileged communities and have several more under construction, which provides over 280 poor children with love, education and a nutritious meal.

 

 

 

 

 

The Bholu collection at Jack + Jade Home includes many great and unique items from beautiful linen and felt pillows to the amazing creatures that will amaze your little ones with their infectious personality and lovable faces.  We are proud to be partnered with such a socially responsible and fun company!

These modern led lamps provides a warm, ambient glow that won’t blow out in the wind, or set the house on fire if left unattended.  The lights feature intelligent patented circuitry that turns them on automatically when removed from their charging pad and starts to recharge them the moment they are replaced. They will also light up automatically in the event of a power cut.  The lamps produce a diffused light, remain lit for five hours and can be used indoors or out. They take 16 hours to fully recharge and a button on their base lets you switch them off when not needed.
