Based in the Scottish Highlands, Petra Palumbo produces sustainable homeware, which is environmentally conscious, high-quality and made to last.
Upon completing a masters in Sustainable Textiles at Chelsea College of Arts in London, Petra was determined to reduce plastic waste. This inspired her to create her signature carafe and tumbler set, aiming to keep water fresh without the need for plastic bottles. She then went on to establish Petra Palumbo, her own environmentally conscious brand which fuses inspiration from her Lebanese ancestry and Scotland’s rich heritage of textiles and craft.
Sustainability lies at the heart of Petra Palumbo and is central to everything they do. The brands’ ethos is founded on the desire to slow down the pace of consumption so that we have a long-lasting relationship with the objects in our lives, taking care of them and eventually passing them down.
All Petra Palumbo products are beautifully crafted, championing artisan designs and conscious materials. The raw materials utilised are considered in terms of their full life cycle and the brand is committed to closing the loop, selecting materials that can be re-purposed over and over again. Petra Palumbo takes a holistic view of sustainability from community investment to responsible sourcing, challenging sustainability from all angles
