Faux Leather: The New Trend

Ziggiziggi has launched its new range of luxury Kyoto freestanding bathroom accessories. This range of Italian accessories by Gedy uses faux leather to create a decadent look which is also cruelty-free.

Why is faux leather so current?

Following Armani’s lead in 2016, the CEO of Gucci has pledged to go fur-free in 2018. Luxury brands such as Stella McCartney and Joseph Altuzarra have also used faux leather on their runways. These trends aren’t just confined to the runways, as interior designers are becoming more savvy with the materials they use, focusing on materials that help to conserve the planet and its animals.

Faux leather and faux furs are becoming a huge hit as animal-free products are more sustainable, eco-friendly and ethical.

There are several other advantages of using faux leather products, as they are cheaper than animal hides, more durable and there are a number of different types and varieties. The faux leather market is clearly one to watch, as new versions are being developed such as ocean leather from kelp and cork leather from oak trees.

From tumblers to pedal bins, laundry baskets to soap dispensers, the Kyoto range has everything you’d need for a luxury bathroom with leather-look accents. So if you’re giving your bathroom a revamp, why not give the Kyoto accessory range a try for luxury style which is cruelty-free.

The Kyoto range is available here.
Comes in colours white, tan and chocolate.


Bathroom Pet Peeves

Being British, we love to have a good old moan… so why not have a moan about bathrooms?

Whilst Ziggiziggi aims to help you create the perfect bathroom, sometimes you just can’t escape those annoying imperfections. Which of these is your biggest bathroom pet peeve?

The wobbly toilet seat.
You sit down and then there it is. The dreaded wobble. You feel yourself slowly veering away and longing for a stable and secure seat for your posterior. Yes, it’s not the worst thing in the world, but it gets on our nerves.

The frustrating flush.
When the toilet handle just won’t comply and doesn’t want to flush unless you use every ounce of strength or are the incredible hulk. We’ll take an automatic sensor flush over that any day.

Over-excitable automatic flush mechanisms.
Those sensor-operated flush systems which go into overdrive the second you get anywhere near them. Calm down, we haven’t even sat down yet. And don’t get us started on auto systems which don’t work where you end up flapping your hands in front of them like a deranged bird.

The leaky faucet.
Leaky taps are just the worst. Forget the huge waste of water and money, they are just so annoying.

Greedy toilet paper users.
That horrendous moment when you look over and see a finished roll of loo paper that hasn’t been replaced. The horror!

What’s your most frustrating bathroom pet peeve?
