WINTER WOOLLIES: Wrap up warm with Rapanui

on in Fashion

Because looking good and keeping warm doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

 Rapanui Jumpers

Brrr! There’s no escaping the fact that the winter weather is finally here! But instead of cranking up your heating and putting the strain on your pocket (and the planet) why not chuck on a cosy winter jumper instead? Apparently high central heating can even make you fat!

And what better way to keep warm this winter than in these lovely sweaters from Global Cool faves Rapanui?

We love wolf jumpers! And so do Rapanui. Which is why we can both agree on how cool this wolf jumper is (above right). We also love to get a bit retro with this Dodo Print Jumper (above left). All of Rapanui’s stock is made in a wind powered, ethically accredited factory and is printed on 100% Organic Cotton (so it’s super soft too). It’s transported by ship, not air and hand-finished in the UK. That’s a lot of good in one jumper!

Rapanui also live by the motto ‘Cool wash, hang dry’ which encourages people to turn down the temperature on their washing machines and not to use dryer or crank up the central heating to dry clothes – something we can really get on board with!

If pennies are being pinched this close to Christmas though, why not make the most of what you’ve got an finally sew up the holes in that favourite jumper you never quite got round to fixing? And here’s a lovely little tutorial so you can make sure you fix it properly…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
