Top 5 water bottles

For months I have been refilling the same old Evian water bottle. But today I decided, for three reasons, that it is time to invest in a proper aluminium one. Firstly, I have finally fallen prey to fears of BPA and its harmful effects; secondly, I want to reuse where I can; and thirdly – and most excitingly – I want to sip from something beautiful while I do so. With so many fun designs around I thought I would share my top five: I was tempted by Celia Birtwell but in the end I have gone for Gaiam – I always love their products and know they have been responsibly produced. Happy hydration is just a delivery away…

I don’t really trust anyone who doesn’t find even the smallest degree of joy in Celia Birtwell’s legendary designs.

Doyenne of hippy chic and ‘the face that launched a thousand prints’ – or more – Birtwell is a longstanding favourite of many a design junkie, representing one half of fashion’s most iconic marriage. And behind every great man…

Today, print aficionados across the globe can celebrate as Celia Birtwell takes the leap and goes online. Wallpaper, fabric, stationery, vintage and contemporary fashion including original Ossie Clark pieces, homeware – it’s all there for the taking and they ship all over the world.

As you would expect, the prints speak for themselves.
