LINEN BATH

WHAT
A bathing system for contemporary interiors, complete with natural linen textiles, for an inviting washing ritual that is less wasteful than a shower or a bath.

HOW
Linen is highly absorbent, so Alice Guidi made use of this natural property and created three linen bathing textiles: a washcloth with a soft, felted edge for extra-sensitive areas, a chunkier knitted sponge for exfoliation, and a towel. The basin, spoon and stool enhance the ease and timeless appeal of the experience.

WHY
In a world facing increasing water shortages, it is not sustainable to keep pouring litres and litres of this valuable resource down the drain.

QUOTE
Even just a five-minute shower uses up 45 litres of water.
