About Tabitha Eve
Tabitha Eve specialise in eco-friendly homeware, beauty and gifts and innovative plastic-free swaps. Founder Deb’s journey started in Borneo, where she was confronted by a plastic island once home to precious sea life. Vowing to turn the tide against wastefulness and plastic pollution, Deb started creating products to replace the disposable items in her home. What started as a personal mission soon turned into a brand created by popular demand, and so Tabitha Eve (named after Deb’s youngest) was born!
Hand sewn in a South Wales studio, most of Tabitha Eve’s products are entirely plastic-free. Tabitha Eve avoid plastic where possible, but recognise that it's also an incredibly useful invention that's sometimes very difficult to replace. There are just a few products such as their Snack Bag, where waterproofing or food-safety is required, so this is made with PUL. We share Tabitha Eve’s belief that, as long as the product is designed with reusability and longevity in mind, necessary plastic isn't evil.
Like Y.O.U, Tabitha Eve is a female-owned brand that consider sustainability and ethics at every stage, from minimising waste through the efficient cutting of fabrics to offering off-cuts to local schools and charities. Tabitha Eve also sell ‘imperfect’ products - that's those that have been sewn slightly incorrectly or that might be a little wonky - at a heavy discount to avoid any perfectly functional items ending up in landfill, some which we are stocking ourselves! Where there is unavoidable fabric waste, this is often used to produce other products. Tabitha’s Organic Cotton Make Up Rounds, for example, are made using the off-cuts from their Shower Mitts!
