At Supreme Creations, we are experts at finding solutions to replace single-use plastic items with sustainable eco-friendly options.

Bazar Bio Skincare Natural Cotton Packaging

Bazar Bio, a French organic and natural beauty e-shop, was looking for a sustainable packaging solution to fit the products to be shipped to customers once they order from their website.

We offered to develop a very simple natural cotton drawstring bag printed with their logo and finished with a natural cord string. The bottom part is also printed from edge to edge to add value to the drawstring bag without blowing up the budget.

Natural cotton is the ideal fabric to replace single-use plastic packaging as it can be easily dyed to any pantone to fit branding and is easy to print. It can be organic and Fairtrade to your brand requirements and we usually use a 5oz cotton farmed in India.

Decoding Sustainability Jargon

At Supreme Creations we know that sustainability can be confusing. There is a lot of jargon thrown about, and it’s hard to know what the hell anyone is on about. We thought it would be helpful to make a glossary of these new sustainability terms, and define them in an easy, simple way so that you may use this as a reference point when talking, reading, or thinking about sustainability.

Green Businesses

It seems today the trending topic in the business world is ‘going green’. These moves by big businesses to try and cut carbon emissions, use greener energy, and improve their effect on the environment, are all a positive movement towards a greener future. However, at a time when ‘green’ is in, we want to know how many of these claims are ‘greenwashing’, painting businesses in a positive light whereas in reality their practices are far from sustainable.

Fibre Focus: Cotton

Choosing a fibre from a design perspective can be challenging enough, but the fibre that a fabric is made from also has numerous environmental and social impacts. It can be difficult to work out the best option when selecting a fibre.

Simple patterns to print on your tote bags

A spot repeat pattern is can give surprisingly varied prints when small changes are made. Small dots give a traditional and uniform appearance. Patterns like this are great for conventional and classic designs, or for printed inner linings. Use a half-drop repeat for a more directional print. Dense coloured spots on a white background give fabric a fresh look that is perfect for all purposes – from kitchen to cosmetics.
