Luxury Recycled Stationery Aims to Impress.
Talk of the Town Parties is a new stationery company, offering luxury recycled stationery, cards and gifts to style conscious, eco-aware consumers.
Specialising in stationery made from both conventional and unconventional eco-aware sources, their collection encompasses wild flower seeded card and elephant / rhino dung cardstock and the more familiar recycled paper choices.
A fun alternative to the ‘norm’, the collection plays with the fact that it contains real dung or seeds. The result is a wide range of unique stationery products with their eco-credentials firmly in place.
From stunning, yet eco-friendly wedding stationery to themed party invitations, greeting cards and gifts, Talk of the Town Parties has every occasion covered.
Seeds, Dung & More
The elephant dung for the card comes from rescued or retired working elephants being cared for in Sri Lanka, whilst the rhino dung comes from the critically endangered black African rhino’s house in Paignton Zoo. Made in the UK this unusual, yet brilliant card is made from a dash of dung, a sprinkle of love and a whole heap of waste paper collected from schools and offices. Recycling unwanted paper that may have otherwise have ended up in landfill.
The seeds embedded in the wild flower seeded card are specifically chosen to attract wildlife and once planted the card recreates a mini British wild flower meadow.
Carrying on the theme, the festive collection also offers Christmas cards which utilise reindeer poo and contain real Christmas tree seeds ready for planting.
Sitting alongside the everyday recycled stationery and gift products, Talk of the Town Parties is keen to bring their unique brand of eco-friendly luxuries to the world of weddings.
Offering beautiful, eco-chic wedding stationery collections, which give couples a unique alternative to regular wedding stationery products. Talk of the Town Parties Owner Jennifer comments;
“I have always had a love (or possible slight obsession) for stationery, though my love affair with wedding stationery probably began back in 2008 when I painstakingly cut, stuck and crafted all of my own wedding stationery.”
Dedicated to designing beautiful, fully personalised ranges, the wedding stationery is uniquely offered on a variety of eco-friendly cardstocks; 100% recycled, luxurious elephant or rhino dung card, fabulous re-growable wild flower seeded card, or the more conventional eco-friendly white and ivory card.
About Talk of the Town Parties
Each of the luxury recycled stationery products, cards and gifts is designed by Talk of the Town owner, Jennifer Combes. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, the collection is designed from her home overlooking the sea on the beautiful east coast of Scotland.
“I wanted to offer stationery collections proving that recycled products can offer beautiful and luxurious stationery with the added bonus of being incredibly eco-friendly. ”
As a qualified zoologist Jennifer’s creations are coloured by her own work and adventures in the natural word, giving a unique perspective to a popular theme.
Beyond the design inspiration, Jennifer’s passion for conservation also sees her donate 10% of any rhino dung purchase to the wildlife charity Save the Rhino International. Giving stationery fans the chance to have a positive effect of the planet every time they make a purchase.
