Earlier this month, Smock was excited for the opportunity to contribute some of our fun letterpress greeting cards to goody bags handed out to guests at the recent Rubie Green event at Calypso Home in New York City. Rubie Green, a line of incredibly stylish organic upholstery textiles and bedding, was created by Michelle Adams who is the former editor of Domino magazine so it was a thrill for us to contribute to an event that was both fabulously chic, but also wonderfully eco-minded. This was such a great opportunity to introduce Smock to some new friends!
First of all, it has to be noted that the Calypso store provided a beautiful backdrop for this event…
At the event, guests were treated to refreshments – Fair Trade organic wines and treats – and loads of Michelle’s great tips for living a greener lifestyle without sacrificing style. Throughout the space there were cute little vignettes set up with tips for great ways to be more eco-friendly in every day life.
The goody bags were pretty great, too, of course! Among the contents, guests at the event received a cute makeup bag from Rubie Green, Smock’s Apple of My Eye letterpress greeting card, and a candle from Linnea’s Lights, friends of Smock and one of the co-vendors at our Monday Morning Mimosas event back in August.
Guests included an incredible group of print editors, bloggers and NYC trendsetters, gathering together to celebrate the launch of Rubie Green. We love seeing such talent and vision coming together for a great eco-inspired event and are thrilled to have played a small part.
