Sustainable Homewares Collection - Jacaranda Plate
Inspired by the stunning lilac blooms of the Jacaranda tree, this plate is sure to make all of your high tea dreams come true. It looks even more beautiful when piled high with freshly baked scones and surrounded by chocolate dipped strawberries too!
Jacarandas are native to Mexico, Central America and South America but have slowly spread their beautiful blossoms to all corners of the earth, bringing colour and life to many people’s backyards and neighbourhoods. Their delicate, lilac flowers are a beautiful representation of nature and all of its intriguing details and we believe that the Jacaranda Tree should be celebrated and appreciated in all of its glory.
This is the exact reason that we wanted to encompass all of its beauty in this sustainable homewares creation.
Not only does the design reflect the uniqueness of the Jacaranda flower but purple also represents loyalty, ambition and wisdom which we think are all beautiful qualities that we should strive to achieve when it comes to sustainable living.
Firstly Loyalty to the environment by making a conscious decision to make eco-friendly changes to your lifestyle, next Ambition to make a real difference and to continually improve on your environmental impact and lastly Wisdom to share knowledge about how to save the planet with the circle of people around you while simultaneously striving to expand your knowledge and expertise on up to date eco topics.
Once the design is complete, we send if off to an Australian manufacturer whose factory runs entirely off solar power and they transfer the Jacaranda design onto plates before sending them back to Sophia. Whilst our current plate collection is made with melamine, we have weighed up the impact they have over their lifetime and they’re more sustainable than you would think! Because the plates are unbreakable and fade resistant, it means that you can use them over and over again without creating waste and no carbon emissions were created in the process of manufacturing.
Because the plates are also designed and created in Australia, you can be sure that the highest ethical and sustainable standards are kept during the entire process.
We’ll also include a personalised note welcoming you into the Sisterhood of Sophia. and thanking you for your purchase. The Sisterhood of Sophia is a community of eco conscious women who we’ve brought together through our sustainable and ethical practices and projects. It is our way of continuously sharing important information on sustainable living while also bringing likeminded women together to make a real difference to our environment and community.
