Woven Image is an Australian company that manufactures innovative surface coverings and textiles. One of its key products is its award-winning EchoPanel, a versatile eco-friendly acoustic material made from 60 per post consumer recycled plastic bottles and 40 per cent virgin PET, and which is 100 per cent recyclable

Available in different thicknesses (7,12 and 24mm) and lots of designs and colours, EchoPanel is a fun, modern material can be used in myriad ways in residential, office and contract interiors - as wall cladding, space dividers, decorative designs, desk dividers or indeed as artwork. It has the added bonus of being able to absorb sound, so in spaces that are noisy or echoey, it creates what's called acoustic comfort for people. 

EchoPanel demonstrates upcycling at its best because it's taking a waste material and creating a high quality new product from it. It comes in panel form, ready-made freestanding screens, ceiling suspended space dividers and in packs of peel-and-stick tiles - which are great fun to use. 

So if want to update your interiors and have acoustic benefit too, check out EchoPanel - available to order in the UK through The Collective Agency.

Elizabeth Macregor Nursery is famed for its violas

Elizabeth Macgregor Nursery

Ellenbank, Tongland Road, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4UU

phone: 01557 330620

Elizabeth Macgregor Nursery is a small nursery and garden run by Elizabeth and Alasdair MacGregor, and their son John, in Galloway, south-west Scotland. We sell plants by mail order, at some flower shows and of course from the nursery. We produce a new catalogue each autumn, when we know what we have propagated and should have available for the following spring. We usually send plants in spring, March to early May. After this we will try to fulfill orders until the end of May, though taller plants will have to be cut back to fit a box.  No autumn deliveries.

Elizabeth specialises in cultivating violas and she has won prestigious awards for her plants, including the Wild Swan anemone

You can select and order plants through our online shop. When you have selected your plants the system sends me an email with your order, I will then confirm with an email, usually within a few hours.

By Dee McLean, Hampstead Heath in summer

Dee McLean Art

London NW5

Dee is an artist inspired by nature, be it her local Hampstead Heath, Louisiana or Canada - the latter two are important to her because she lived in the former and her daughter now lives in the latter.  Dee has a background in medical drawings but in recent years has returned to painting the natural world using watercolours predominantly. She captures the detail of vegetation while her paintings transmit the relaxed nonchalence of the natural world.  Dee is very committed to communicating how climate change is affecting the planet and her art depicts a changing world. You can buy giclee prints of Dee's original works, or commission a painting.
