Eco invitations

For the environmentally conscious mind; here we have some pretty cool eco-invitations for a wedding, which are printed on re-usable tea towels. The original towels were bought second hand and then our own design (Eco Design Umea) were printed by an environmental printing company, so when the guests receive their invitation  not only will they be reminded of the couple (a textile designer and a chef) but they will also have a product for life.

Moreover; this will give them a hint about the ecologically conscious vintage wedding they are about to attend, whereas many invitations end up in the bin, these can be used again and again; and that is the whole idea of this event, -use objects which have a second purpose or already exist -all in the spirit of establishing a long-lasting relation with the material world and move away from the buy & throw away mentality that our consumer society has today.
