Looking for knickers with a small carbon footprint?

Luva Huva produces eco-friendly garments in the United Kingdom that are utterly adorable. Each knicker is hand made with bows, frills and sometimes buttons to make a very special and unique pair of knickers.

Perfect for your wedding day. Luva Huva‘s method of production minimizes environmental impact and I work as ecologically as possible. Luva Huva‘s use a variety of end of line fabrics, remnants and cut-offs that would otherwise go to waste. All the materials are sourced locally and every garment is handmade in the UK by Luva Huva, meaning their knickers have a small carbon footprint. Consequently they are not only beautiful but also ethically sound.

eco friendly wedding invites is one of our favorite web sites for all things DIY. You definitely have to stop by and visit their post on Lauren and Andrew’s DIY wedding. These green invites are the pride and joy of Lauren and Andrew’s DIY wedding efforts. They created these chipboard invitation wheels to give guests a creative way to get all their information in an heirloom keepsake format.

They are made from two circles of untreated, recycled chipboard die cut and letter pressed to look like an old planting wheel with redwood rings on it.
