When designing NEREBY series, I wanted to create smart storage that would also bring warmth and softness to often bare and angular kitchens. I looked to traditional kitchens, campers and boats for inspiration and opted for honest and sustainable materials such as hemp. The most striking feature? Probably the combination of metal, wood and fabric that make the products simple and straightforward. I hope people appreciate these delightful additions in their kitchens.
What is cotton?
Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibres. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilisers and water.
