Capri, the Italian island of dreams, has been an enchanting oasis since Roman times. Its natural beauty, sunny climate and innate glamour are legendary. In 1380 the Father Prior of the Monastery of St. Giacomo was taken unawares by the news of the arrival on Capri of the Queen Giovanna D' Angio' and so made her a flower arrangement with the most beautiful island flowers. The water was not changed for three days and, when the flowers were discarded, the prior noticed that the water had acquired a beautiful fragrance unknown to him. He went to the father alchemist who traced the origin of this scent back to the "Garofilium Silvestre Caprese". That water became the first perfume of Capri. Forgotten for many years, in 1948 the Prior of the Monastery discovered the old perfume formulas and by permission of the Pope, revealed them to a chemist, who created the smallest fragrance laboratory in the world and called it 'Carthusia'. Today the perfume tradition continues and limited production ensures the same methods used by the Carthusian monks are respected.
The Laundress | New York
The Laundress was founded in 2004 by Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd. The New York based creatives were left unsatisfied with existing laundry products on the market so decided to develop their own 'made in the USA' cleaning solutions. With each carefully crafted Laundress product washing is a delight, made even more enjoyable with an assortment fantastic tools and storage options. The Laundress Laundry Detergents offer excellent value per wash compared to both natural and supermarket brands, their highly concentrated products use less per load and therefore require less packaging, energy, and water. Clean and Green - The Laundress products are cruelty free and contain no animal by-products. Importantly ingredients are plant-derived and free of artificial colours, dyes, allergens, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), petroleum, phthalates, phosphate, parabens, and chlorine bleach. You can wash with confidence as The Laundress products are suited to all machines, washing temperatures, and water systems. Products are formulated with active ingredients - enzymes, colour guard, and bleach alternative - that preserve fabrics and colours while targeting stains.
More recently The Laundress has extended into home cleaning products. Unwilling to use toxic cleaners and fed up with inferior natural cleaning products, Gwen and Lindsey decided to create their own. From dish detergent to window cleaners, the Home Collection has proven to be tough on dirt yet safe for you, your home and the environment. Proudly made in the USA.
