    Green Design

    In a time when great emphasis is placed on the environment, rather than recycling your Protea bottle, why not reuse it? A plethora of possibilities present itself when faced with these authentic prints – only a bit of personal innovation is required: Take your bottles to a professional glass cutter and have them transformed into cups, vases and plant pots. Take your bottles to get melted as placemats or even seats (as pictured). Build a Protea bottle rack. Add a serving top to a bottle transforming it into an ornamental sauce container. Lastly, we would like to highlight the obvious: Protea bottles make great gifts. We’ve gone one step further and rendered the Eisen Cape-prints as wrapping paper or placemats, allowing you to download and print your favourite at home. Gifting made easy – have a go and print an A3 sheet now.
