SOU SOU and 24Bottles

The opportunity for this partnership came in conjunction with the extraordinary opening of the first SOU‧SOU store in Taiwan.


To frame this highly anticipated event was Eslite R79, where the Kyoto SOU‧SOU store was completely re-created. 
The style of the Eslite R79 store was adapted to match the Japanese brand’s style. 
Shop windows were covered with authentic patterns so that fans can get to know SOU‧SOU at close range.


At 24Bottles, we’re thrilled to be working with SOU‧SOU because we love the brand’s unique patterns and history.

About SOU‧SOU Kyoto

SOU · SOU was founded in 2002 by textile designer Katsuji Wakisaka, architect Hisanobu Tsujimura and producer Takeshi Wakabayashi.

Childlike motifs and bright colours are the brand’s emblem, designed in Kyoto, with a nod to the evolving seasons’ beauty.

With SOU · SOU, a contemporary and vibrant Japanese aesthetic is emerging in Kyoto, reminiscent of the former Japanese capital’s vitality.

SOU‧SOU hopes to revive traditional Japanese craftsmanship through design.

The aim of SOU‧SOU Kyoto as a brand is to “[create] a new interpretation of Japanese culture based on Japanese tradition.”

Instead of reproducing patterns from ancient kimonos on shirts and bags, SOU‧SOU Kyoto designers re-examine what is appealing about traditional Japanese models and then use that understanding to produce something fresh.

The SOU · SOU show at Eslite R79, has been combined with the print “Ten numbers”, the pattern chosen to dress one of the two Urban Bottles of the SOU · SOU x 24Bottles collaboration.

The print was also used to create a beautiful digital wall and an exclusive exhibition of 80 designers’ original paintings, to feel Kyoto’s beauty under the nib of the designer.

Silk road and cross-cultural diffusion: China Growl Clima Bottle between two worlds

08 Jun 2019
24Bottles China Growl Clima Bottle Limited Edition reusable stainless steel water bottle
24Bottles Limited Edition China Growl Clima Bottle

Drawing inspiration from the ancient art of Oriental weaving, the China Growl Clima Bottle pattern design is a tribute to the precious silks typical of ancient China.


Through land, sea and river routes, mythological figures and world-famed trade exchanges, 24Bottles China Growl Clima Bottle carries the deep cultural vibrations of a connecting link between two worlds.

Silk: an Empress’ story

Legend has it that the Chinese Empress Si Ling-Chi sat in the shade of her court garden, sipping tea beneath gracious mulberry trees. She heard a tiny rustle in the leaves above her, and the breeze suddenly dropped a white cocoon into her teacup. Instead of picking it out of her drink, she watched as the hot water began to dissolve it. Soon her tea was laced with shimmering filaments. And Si Ling-Chi imagined the luminous gown she might weave for her husband, Hoang-ti, the mythic Yellow Emperor.


That is how Chinese tradition recounts the discovery of silk in the year 2700 BC. Si Ling-Chi went on to develop sericulture – the science of silk production.

24Bottles Limited Edition China Growl Clima Bottle

The silk road

Silk cloth was extremely valuable in Ancient China. Wearing silk was an important status symbol. Silk was even used as money during some Ancient Chinese dynasties.
 
The discovery of silk laid the basis to the world-famed trade, which led to extensive and multimillennial commercial exchanges between the Far East and West.
Silk was such an important product from China that the trade route from Europe to China became known as the Silk Road.
 
Sericulture became a state secret in China and remained a mystery for thousands of years, but around the thirteenth century, Italy became one of the major producers of silk. Some of the finest silk in the world is made in Italy today.

Exhibit in the Portland Art Museum – Portland, Oregon, USA.

The dragon on China Growl Clima Bottle

The Chinese dragon is a spiritual and cultural symbol that represents prosperity and good luck, as well as a rain deity that fosters harmony.
 
Chinese dragons have many animal-like forms, but are most commonly depicted as snake-like with four legs. They traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods.
 
The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture. During the days of Imperial China, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial strength and power.
That’s why, in Chinese culture, excellent and outstanding people are compared to a dragon.

The colours of China Growl Clima Bottle

In traditional Chinese art and culture, colours play a significant role; that’s why we picked blue, green, yellow and red when designing our Limited Edition China Growl Clima Bottle.

Calmness, nature, power and happiness are just a few of the emotions that we wanted to depict while designing China Growl.


Blue represents heaven in the sky, immortality, healing and calmness. It’s commonly mixed with the colour green, arising the combined colour qing (青).


Green symbolises new beginnings, renewability, and is usually tied to Nature among the Chinese community: growth, spring, harvest and health.


Yellow is the colour of royalty, power and wealth. Centuries ago, it was worn by emperors and it’s also a nod to the Yellow Empress, who discovered silk.


Red is an auspicious colour in Chinese culture, is capable of warding off evil spirits, representing luck, happiness, celebration and prosperity.

The Great Wall of China

New silk road, cross-cultural diffusion and sustainability

China has emerged as an economic and political power in the past decade. This has lead to significant changes in geo-economics, geopolitics and cross-cultural diffusion.
 
To strengthen connections between Asia, Europe and Africa, and promote cross-border trade, economic integration and inclusive growth, China founded the “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI), a recent ambitious infrastructure project along with the ancient land and maritime Silk Road routes.
 
The project has the aim to address the infrastructure gap and boost economic growth, but the international community raised concerns on the potential worldwide environmental risk.
The Chinese government is fully aware of the imperative of “greening” the BRI and took various initiatives to make sure to seize the opportunity to share good practices and provide policy solutions to sustainable development.
 
Shouqing Zhu and Sha Song wrote an interesting article on the World Economic Forum’s website. They highlighted three cornerstones to ensure that environmental friendliness, climate resilience and social inclusiveness are built into the new investment projects and daily business operations in the Belt and Road region.
 
They hope that “the BRI will be a win-win solution for development and sustainability, and that China and other investing countries could make a great contribution to the green transition to sustainabilityin the countries along the ancient Silk Road.”

Limited Edition: an astonishing success

China Growl Clima Bottle was released as an exclusive Limited Edition on 24bottles.com. The

24Bottles and Elena Salmistraro for Malala Fund. Design meets charity.

12 Apr 2019

24Bottles and Elena Salmistraro have teamed up during Milan Design Week 2019 to create a brand-new collection designed to support Malala Fund.

24Bottles and Elena Salmistraro

24Bottles and Elena Salmistraro have teamed up to create a brand-new collection, launched during Milan Design Week 2019, designed to raise awareness on girls’ education (andsustainability), linked to a giving back project supporting Malala Fund.

Along with the young, talented Milanese designer we’ve given life to a poetic project, suspended between the earthly and the divine, narrating the indissoluble relationship between man and nature.

Elena Salmistraro’s graphic art decorates the steel of 24Bottles and tells two different stories, forming the background to two major and interconnected subjects: altruism and the protection of women.

Śakra Urban Bottle and the Moon Rabbit legend (Tsuki no Usagi)

The graphic on Sàkra Urban Bottle is a story in pictures from Elena Salmistraro’s point of view. The artist chose to represent the famous oriental legend of the Moon Rabbit, that revolves around the theme of altruism.
According to the Buddhist Jataka tales, the story sees as the lead characters a brave and generous rabbit, alongside with the ruler of the Trāyastriṃśa Heaven.

“Many years ago, the Old Man of the Moon decided to visit the Earth. He disguised himself as a beggar and asked Fox (Kitsune), Monkey (Saru), and Rabbit (Usagi) for some food.
 
Monkey climbed a tree and brought him some fruit. Fox went to a stream, caught a fish, and brought it back to him. But Rabbit had nothing to offer him but some grass. So he asked the beggar to build a fire. After the beggar started the fire, Rabbit jumped into it and offered himself as a meal for the beggar to eat.
 
Quickly the beggar changed back into the Old Man of the Moon and pulled Rabbit from the fire. He said “You are most kind, Rabbit, but don’t do anything to harm yourself. Since you were the kindest of all to me, I’ll take you back to the moon to live with me.”
 
The Old Man carried Rabbit in his arms back to the moon and he is still there to this very day exactly where the Old Man left him. Just look at the moon in the night sky and the rabbit is there!”

Diana Clima Bottle and the power of women

The influence that guided Elena Salmistraro for Diana Clima Bottle’s graphics derives from the Latin mythology.
 
Diana is the protecting divinity of women, guardian of springs, streams and wild animals, who accompanied by nymphs frequented woods, mountains and fresh clearings with her mystical aura.

About Elena Salmistraro
Elena Salmistraro is a Milanese designer and artist. She works as a product designer, artist and illustrator for leading companies in the creative sector, and her partnerships include: Apple, Disney, Alessi, Bosa, Seletti, Timberland, Replay, LuisaViaRoma and Yoox.
Her designs have been selected for some major art exhibitions. In 2016, she took part in W-Women in Italian Design. She was appointed world ambassador of Italian design in 2017 during “Italian Design Day”.
In 2017 she won the “Best Emerging Designer Award” at the Salone del Mobile – “Salone del Mobile Milano Award”. In 2018 she was appointed Ambassador of the Brera Design District for the FuoriSalone at the Milan Salone del Mobile.

About Malala Fund

Design, sustainability and zero emissions, but that’s not all: the 24Bottles + Elena Salmistraro Collection is also a charity effort.
24Bottles will in fact be donating 10% of profits to Malala Fund, the ONG founded by the Nobel peace prize-winning Malala Yousafzai, who is committed to ensuring the right to education, training and employment for girls all over the world.

24Bottles and the University of Rome Tor Vergata: find out more on the project “Goccia” Goal One for Climate Change

24Bottles and the University of Rome Tor Vergata

The University of Rome Tor Vergata chose 24Bottles for the project “Goccia” Goal One – to promote Climate Change awareness to reduce the use of plastic bottled water throughout the campus.

14.000 disposable plastic bottles saved!

The overall idea revolves around a few, simple steps that allowed the University of Rome Tor Vergata to cut already 14 thousand plastic bottles in only two weeks since the project started.
 
We at 24Bottles are proud to have helped them achieve this remarkable goal with our carbon neutral reusable water bottles.

The Project Work “Goccia” came about thanks to two students of the MARIS Master at University of Rome Tor Vergata.
 
Vincenzo Ludovici Pietropaoli and Marco Uttaro created “Goccia” by taking up a best practice of the Network of Universities for Sustainable Development (RUS) for the reduction of plastic in Italian universities.
 
The two students integrated the best practices with analytical chemistry analysis in the new Laboratory of the Department of Chemical Sciences and Technologies, called “LabCap“, ISO 9001 Certificate which will guarantee university users the high quality of the water supplied by the installed water fountains and chillers.
 
Moreover, the water will be periodically subjected to laboratory analysis by LabCap whose results will be published on the website.

Vivienne Westwood and 24Bottles mark World Water Day

Vivienne Westwood and 24Bottles release special edition Gaia Clima Bottle on World Water Day to raise awareness of the effects of climate change

24Bottles and Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood and 24Bottles have teamed up again to create the brand-new special edition re-usable Gaia Clima Bottle, designed to raise awareness of the effects of climate change and the future of our planet.

Gaia Clima Bottle is launched on 22nd March 2019 to mark World Water Day, a date used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources, from sewage entering drinking water to the endless plastic waste pouring into river systems around the world.

Vivienne Westwood and climate change

The design of special edition Gaia Clima Bottle features Vivienne Westwood’s hand-written message; ‘Gaia! – the only one for me’.
 
The world-famous British designer has always been outspoken about environmental issues. The encounter with James Lovelock and his theories has lead Vivienne Westwood to raise awareness on climate change – and its effects – in the fashion industry.
 
James Lovelock is the scientist, environmentalist, and futurist behind the Gaia Theory, which postulates that the Earth functions as a self-regulating system.

The Gaia Theory

“The Gaia Theory (James Lovelock) is as revolutionary as the theories of Einstein or Darwin; indeed it is a more complete theory of evolution. 
It has changed our perception of the world – and this will change our behaviour. Gaia is the name the Greeks gave the earth goddess, and Lovelock chose it because of his insight that the earth is alive; Gaia and her life-forms have evolved together in a self-regulation system, and together they create the atmosphere which keeps her cool. 
If this harmony is broken then Gaia can no longer sustain or tolerate those same life forms; she, herself, will find a new equilibrium by moving to a hot state.” 
– Vivienne Westwood

‘Gaia! – the only one for me’

The new design of Clima Bottle features Vivienne Westwood’s hand-written message; ‘Gaia! – the only one for me’.
 
The 24Bottles Clima Bottle promotes a zero-waste alternative to the disposable plastic bottles, saving 0,08kg of C02 from the atmosphere each time the bottle is used.
Designed with a matt white finish the bottle is made from a revolutionary stainless steel – able to insulate hot liquid for up to 12 hours, and cold for 24 hours.

Patterns with a story: the Herringbone’s Italian heritage in 24Bottles Limited Edition

25 Jan 2019

24Bottles Limited Edition: the brand-new Clima Bottle that celebrates the high-end Italian Style.

24Bottles Limited Edition

Herringbone has always been a renowned design in the clothing industry and it’s not uncommon to find a few pieces of this historical fabric when rummaging in a fashionista’s wardrobe!

Named after the intricate bone structure of a herring fish, the Herringbone pattern consists of a geometric arrangement of rectangles, parallelograms, lines or alternating twill weaves in a repetitive and symmetric scheme.

24Bottles Limited Edition insulated bottle

From flooring to fabrics, from mosaics to wallpapers, from sculpture to jewellery, the herringbone pattern is utilised in many industries and applications, often used to bring a sophisticated feel to a project.

An ancient pattern

The herringbone patterning was used in the construction of roadways during the Roman Empire, when the interlocking paving system proved to be extremely stable, durable, but pleasing to the eye, too.

Therefore, it’s self-explanatory how the earliest herringbone fabrics were found in ancient Italy.

24Bottles Limited Edition reusable bottle

The Italian Style

That’s why we chose the herringbone pattern for the latest and exclusive 24Bottles Limited Edition Clima Bottle. In designing the Herringbone Limited Edition Clima Bottle, we wanted to celebrate decades of exquisite Italian craftsmanship and high-end tailoring skills.The inspiration behind its precious pattern and deliberately uneven finish comes straight from today’s most elegant clothes and apparel, created with the same care and mastery of the old dressmakers who started the iconic made in Italy style. Herringbone Limited Edition Clima Bottle is the new must-have collectable by 24Bottles!

5 + 1 Tips To Make Your Daily Life Greener

22 Jan 2019

Find out our Tips To Make Your Daily Life Greener and let every day be Earth Day!

Tips To Make Your Daily Life Greener

Life in the city is tough and fast-paced. Often times it makes you do things you don’t really want to do, just for the sake of an immediate convenience that ends up being bad for you and for those who surround you.
Nowadays, unsustainable habits and the consumption of disposable items are so deeply embedded in our daily lives that most of the time we don’t even pay attention to the future risk they will cause. This is why we should think before buying and possibly change some simple daily habits to reduce our overall environmental impact. Let’s celebrate Earth Day every day!

Tips To Make Your Daily Life Greener reusable bottle

1 – “No (plastic) straw, please!” – Whenever ordering your drinks, politely ask the bartender or waiter not to put any plastic straw in it. You can alternatively use your own paper, glass, bamboo, or stainless-steel straw instead. Encourage your friends and family to do the same and start your own straw revolution!
2 – Eat local and in season food. – Eating things local helps reduce the amount of fuel and energy needed to transport the food from the field to your fridge. This is also a wonderful opportunity to support the local farms in your area. And, even though it’s great to eat strawberries on November and have an orange juice on July, try eating fruits and vegetables in their right season: this will significantly reduce the cost of refrigeration (and their taste will be thousand times richer)!
3 – Reuse your shopper bag! – Bring your own bags every time you go shopping. Consider using reusable bags made of natural material like cotton and canvas and remember to buy in bulk when possible to reduce packaging.

4 – By train, car or plane? – One of the easiest ways to make a significant difference is to travel by train. What you can do is to plan fewer and longer vacations that are far away, and more frequent trips closer to home (that you can reach with public transports). A good custom will also be use public transports instead of driving or organize a carpool: one car will use less gas than two or three. Of course, the best eco-friendly way to get around town is by bike or walking!

Tips To Make Your Daily Life Greener stainless steel bottle

5,1 – At home tips. – Unless you are using them, leave your electronic devices and chargers unplugged all the time. Turn off your power strips as well because all electronics suck energy when they’re plugged in, even if they’re powered down. Try to replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent or LED ones. Not only LED light bulbs use 80% less energy than their traditional incandescent counterpart, but they will also last longer. Like that you will avoid the stress of buying new bulbs every other month.
5,2 – Some office tips too. – Unplug all power strips before leaving the office and think if you really need it all in hard copies before printing an email. If you do and it’s not something official, consider reusing some already-printed paper or print it double-sided.

6 – Reduce your consumption of bottled water and other packaged drinks. – By using a refillable bottle you will help reduce not only the single-use plastic consumption worldwide but also the demand for plastic and fossil fuel.
Plastic bottles are a contradiction in terms: on one hand, they are built-to-last, while on the other hand, they are conceived for a single use. How can this be? Many pages have been written about how unhealthy it is to re-use a plastic bottle, and many more have been written about the damages caused by plastic pollution and climate change. So, why don’t we switch our bad habits to good habits?
Every minute, worldwide, 1 million plastic bottles are sold and, of this astonishing quantity, just a small percentage will be recycled. One million per minute means almost 20000 bottles. 90% of which will end up in landfills or worse, in the ocean.
