The award winning dolls, conceived by German designer Alexa Lixfeld, were inspired following a working visit to the Sri Lankan city of Kurunegala. Here, the local community’s desire to build a new school that would be accessible to all and less fortunate children was made apparent, and thus a charitable project driven by the children themselves to make this dream a reality was soon borne.
Lixfeld briefed the local school kids to draw their favourite characters; six of the most creative and visually striking designs were then selected for unaltered production into soft doll form, to be created and hand sewn by the women of the local community.
The dolls are faithful reproductions of the original drawings, each with their own aesthetic idiosyncrasies perfectly preserved – from six fingers on a hand to dental braces (only a drawn gun has been removed in one of the final designs). The hand woven, 100% cotton fabric used for the dolls have been hand dyed using only certified non-toxic dyes before individually hand sewn in Kurunegala.
The six dolls that comprise the Me And My Doll collection retain the names originally bequeathed to them by their young creators: introducing A Doll, Ikesh, Sabana, Pasan, Imesha and Hansitha.
This unique project is also supported by the Selyn Socio-Economic Development Foundation of Sri Lanka, which ensures sound working conditions are maintained during and beyond the production of these dolls and that 50% of the sales revenue are directed back to the community to finance infrastructural development including the new school building scheme.

If ever you needed proof that contemporary cardboard furniture can look cool, edgy and aesthetically impactful in retail environments, then make a trip to Verger – a concept store located in Italy’s fashion capital, Milan.
The minimal interior rich in natural light and decorated in cosy woody hues, welcome locals with traditional Italian cuisine while at the same time, quite literally, browsing through the latest season’s fashion lines. Verger, a restaurant-cum-bar-cum-designer boutique, offers a refreshingly differentretail space. From a design perspective, the experience is genuinely unifying. Verger’s vast open planinterior facilitates and indeed invites its inhabitants to come and go freely between the store’s varying areas.
This natural physical flow of spatial energy has been achieved by the store’s use of cardboard modular shelving throughout. Designed by Italian Architect Giorgio Caporaso, this innovative piece of honeycombed cardboard furniture not only displays the store’s statement fashion pieces effectively but works as a space divider too. Its backless composition enables the spectator to stillsee freely across a larger space, helping to maintain the area’s flow of natural light.
The ‘skin’ of the modular shelves itself are also interchangeable, so the overall look can be switched according to seasons, trends and complementary colour palettes – ideal for the ever-changing retail space – while structurally, each simple modular cube can be built up and arranged to create individual, complex and visually striking structures upon which to showcase merchandise.
Caporaso’s ‘More Light’ exemplifies cardboard furniture design at its most versatile and best. Strong, light and completely recyclable, it is just one of a selection of many stylish contemporary cardboard furnishings available at E-Side for the commercial and retail space.
"Design a variety of twisty tracks and circuits with this traditional marble game. Carved from sustainable wood, the fun characters, tracks and goals are housed in organic cotton bags for storage"
Ideal to play with friends after school or as a family on Sunday afternoons. You can always find time to have fun with RouleTaBille!

Browsing some French magazines we spotted some gorgeous images of our Mello bamboo stools.
We are excited to launch a sophisticated, sustainably designed tableware range to complement our existing, handpicked line of modern gifts, homewares and furnishings.
Rustic cork, sleek ceramics and beautifully natural bamboo feature heavily in the stylish new range, which comprises everything from salad bowls and serving platters to teapots and utensils. Understated in elegance, the new tableware – exclusive to E-Side – is perfect for informal dining and home entertaining.
The Bamboo range
Sturdy, sustainable bamboo has been expertly handcrafted into a series of simple, sleek bowls, spoons and platters by designer Ekobo – just perfect for serving up fresh crisp salads and appetizers to share. Beautiful in its simplicity – modern, elegant and defined by clean, smooth lines, the Ekobo tableware bamboo collection is great for everyday lunches as well as dinner parties with friends.
Homeware that’s a real corker
The rustic, tactile beauty of cork is brought to life beyond its traditional use as bottle stoppers and memo boards with E-Side’s stylish new range of tableware by designer Raquel Castro. Offset by delicate glossy ceramic, the collection gives an understated earthy elegance to everyday drinking and dining. WHISTLER cork and ceramic teapot makes a perfect cuppa, keeping your brew nice and hot so you can enjoy a leisurely tea for longer. Within the range you can also choose from handle free coffee cups and tea cups, and dinner plates available in three colours including pale yellow, white and black.

American brand Proof is now available at E-Side.
The roots of Proof begin with the founders’ Grandpa Bud. He opened his small sawmill almost 60 years ago. Despite setbacks, Bud’s small business was able to prosper with a lot of hard work and tenacity; he eventually grew that small sawmill into a nationally recognized company. Bud’s work ethic was instilled in Proof’s founders. The three brothers grew up with “sawdust in their veins” working with wood in the mill. They pride themselves on providing original products that are handcrafted from sustainable materials.
Proof wooden sunglasses are a great unusual, unique gift for men and women.
Proof not only does good for your eyes and our Earth. Recently Proof were able to reach a longtime goal to break ground on the first Proof Eyewear Eye Clinic in a rural underserved area of India. With the help of each of their customers they have been able to raise $25,000. Proof are working with Aravind Eye Care Systems to bring this to the people of India. They are very appreciative of the support they’ve received and hope this continued support can help more people across the world.

The glossy magazine LivingEtc has featured our One C Dining Chair by Johan Berhin.
The editor looked at the best kitchen chairs for some relaxed and everyday entertaining, and our One C Dining Chair in Birch was in front page.
Designed and manufactured in Sweden by Johan Berhin, One C Dining Chair is the perfect example of the trend for simple, natural wood furniture.
One C is a one piece chair. The idea behind - as told by the designer Johan Berhin - "... was to create a simple, wooden chair using the form of the natural material when you bend it".
Its sinuous lines are very captivating. They follow the shape of the body giving you extra comfort and support.
We have now 1 One C ex-display - previously used in a photoshoot. This chair is in excellent conditions and it could be yours for only £ 230.00. Get it from here
