He's a pro at Bowen Therapy, and he's 5!

He confidently led his mum and best friend into the Pyes Pa treatment room yesterday.

When I asked him how his body was feeling, he could point to the bits where he was holding tension.

Then a super quick assessment and straight onto the massage table.

He's knows to tell me if anywhere is sore, when I'm working, and we talk about what he's doing over the holidays and friends parties.

We've taken it slowly to get here. The 4 year old who first walked in was not sure about Bowen Therapy and this lady who going to touch him.

So we talked, he told me about his toys and I did some moves on him stood up.

After a while we flew to the massage table and did a few more moves with him sitting on the table.

Nothing is rushed and the result is this. A very active 5 year old boy who asks to come for Bowen Therapy when he's feeling a bit out. He will relax on the table and his body responds super quick.

I still don't push for a hug, that would be too much to ask

It’s time to embrace Mother Nature in all her glory and meet our badass green babe, Tina Tape Yarn made from happy tree fibres.

We’re always on the hunt for yarns with a bit of soul and this time ‘round, we worked with suppliers known for their sustainable technology to create something really special – and what we ended up with is better than our wildest yarn dreams!

How it works: Our newest gal is made from Tencel (AKA happy tree fibres). Wood from sustainably harvested eucalyptus trees is squished into pulp, before being pressed and spun into yarn. What’s great about this process is that the raw wood materials are cultivated from forest land that isn’t suitable for agriculture. Eucalyptus grows where no other tree can, which cuts down on unnecessary land use!

When the whole process is said and done, something beautiful remains! Tina Tape Yarn is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen – GO TINA!

A fruitful idea: Orange Fibre

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

In Italy, the citrus industry discards one million tonnes of citrus fruit peels annually. While the peels are of course biodegradable, it still costs a lot of money to dispose of them properly.

While the peels are of course biodegradable, it still costs a lot of money to dispose of them properly. The start-up Orange Fibre, run by Adriana Santanocito and Enrica Arena, has developed a new kind of fabric, which is entirely made of waste citrus fruit peels.


The idea came to Santanocito while working on her thesis in fashion design. Since Sicily, where she is from, is responsible for a major amount of peels, she tried to think of a way to reduce the amount of waste. And thus the idea to make fabric from the discarded peels was born.


The peels are processed with a patented method to extract the cellulose that is spun to form the final yarn. The fabric looks and feels like silk: soft to the touch and a shiny appearance. The biodegradable yarn can be spun with any type of existing yarn.


Aside from looking pretty and feeling nice, the orange yarn has an additional benefit: thanks to nanotechnology, the material still contains essential oils and vitamin C that are present in the citrus fruit peel. The skin absorbs these oils and is nourished by them, making the fabric a wearable body cream. According to Orange Fibre, despite the oils, the fabric does not feel greasy.
