Zest is an all-natural range of pasta sauces and pestos with nothing to hide. The packaging range features naive 1950’s style illustrations of male and female naturist characters each proclaiming the ‘free from artificial anything’ message, whilst preserving their modesty with a key ingredient. Each product within the range has a unique character holding a ‘Free from artificial anything’ sign with an arrow containing the words ‘See behind for details’ prompting you to refer to the back of the jar. The characters are found again on the back of the jar, this time displaying the complete list of ingredients, proof that that there is nothing to hide.

New limited edition wingchairs and thrones from here. Each one has only 33 pieces. The thrones use hand made frames that are made to the highest standards using real mahogany wood from sustainable sources and are hand carved and finished in a high quality twin pack white or black gloss lacquer whereas the the frames of the wingchairs are made from kiln dried hardwood birch and beech. My favourite is the Tokidoki chair, what’s yours?
