Curate Home, a UAE-based home interior and lifestyle brand, is all about sustainability. The brand brings together home essentials that are artisanal-designed and handcrafted whilst making sure they are sustainable and ethical. Curate Home believes that a home should be a sanctuary that reflects your personality and allows you to create your own unique space.
In recent years, sustainability has become the standard of living for many people. Along with big brands and companies, individuals are also making more conscious choices when buying. Considering the current state of the planet, it has become vital for people to make significant lifestyle changes that have a positive impact on the environment.
With consumerism and mass-manufacturing being so prevalent, the brand has consciously thought of products which not only bring your home to life but also respect the environment and uphold their core values of conscious living and sustainability. The goal is to provide authentic functional designs in home décor products that are ethically sourced and fairly priced. Artisans are at the heart of what Curate Home does, and the brand seeks to keep ancient crafts alive with a contemporary twist.
Here are a few of Curate Home’s top picks which you can either gift yourself or your loved ones this upcoming festive season:
