In Mechelen, Belgium, recently opened a new ecodesign store called „ Super Goods“. Super Goods offers a large variety of environmentally friendly and ethical products, ranging from furniture and homeware to clothing and accessories. The Super Goods shop device says it all “Good stuff for good people”: products designed by small European and international producers with respect for the environment and social rights of workers. All items are made from recycled, overstock, fair trade or otherwise sustainable materials.
Shop owners, the Belgian Finnish couple Tonny Van Bavel and Anne Hilden, started dreaming about their eco design shop in 2011 but it wasn´t until they found the perfect location in the “Onze-Lieve-Vrouwestraat” that they started making concrete plans. The building became available on July 1st which meant they only had 2 months to set up their store before the big opening. Hard work, but they managed to open their doors in August and the result is stunning!
If Mechelen is too far to visit, you can also visit their online shop or follow Super Goods on facebook or on pinterest.
These are my favorite items: The flying birds necklace by Finnish designer Poola Kataryna / the second chance Laura dress / the bright green enveloppe bag by Deux Filles en Fil / the pickle pot lamp - I am waiting for the lamp to arrive and can´t wait to hang it in my kitchen.
