Description

I love the simplicity of the Original Strinsel, with its snow-like charm, but sometimes what you really want is the metallic twinkle of gold tinsel. I tried dyeing string gold, but the undeniable matt-ness of cotton left me feeling flat.

Tempted by the lustrous, old-gold colour of jute, I gave it a go and liked the results. Then I read a bit more about jute and I LOVED the results. It turns out that not only is it biodegradable but when it comes to cultivation is has a very low carbon footprint and minimal environmental impact.

It's not shiny, nor is it metallic, and for some it may not be quite 'gold' enough - this is Strinsel at its most rustic - but I stand by my decision to call it Golden Strinsel because jute's sustainability credentials ARE golden.

Need to know

Each length of Jute Strinsel is approximately 2 metres. It should not be cut to size, otherwise it will all unravel and your floor will resemble the aftermath of a ticker tape parade. If you require a shorter length, feel free to contact me to discuss the option of creating a custom order.

Jute Strinsel must be kept a minimum of 1 metre away from fire, flame and other heat sources. Please do bear this in mind, especially if you use candles and/or fires (real flame or otherwise) at Christmas time. I don't use fire retardants on any of my products, but these are available to buy elsewhere in spray form should you want extra piece of mind or intend on using Strinsel in areas where this is required by law or legislation. Legally, I'm not able to offer fire retarding as a service, nor am I able to advise on this matter.

Jute Strinsel is made using Everlasto 100% Jute Twine. Everlasto products were developed at the James Lever Factory in Bolton, UK, where they've been manufacturing twine, cord and rope for over 150 years.

I keep marketing materials to a minimum and all packaging I use can be re-used, composted and/or widely recycled.

This Thing Is String

Nottingham

This Thing is String is an eclectic collection of homewares, oddities and décor, all made from humble household string. Hand knitted, hand dyed, hand sculpted – it’s just me, at my old oak dining table, crafting up solutions to life’s minor plasticky problems.

All my things are plastic free, made in small batches (often to order) and packaged using compostable, recycled or widely recyclable materials.
