Orla Kiely Prints Meet Chic and Safe Householder Cleaners With Method Collection
The Guardian described Orla Kiely as the “Queen of Prints,” and it does not take long to become smitten by her vibrant geometric patterns. Now the Dublin-based fashion designer has teamed with Method to offer a limited edition of hand soaps, dish soaps and cleaners. Method has long turned the idea of household cleaners on its head, encouraging their cleaning products to be on counters, not hidden and stashed under the kitchen sink like the crazy uncle living in the basement. We have been a little obsessed with cleaning here at the Fig Garden Project, and while we swear by your grandmother’s kit of Castile soap, kosher salt and white vinegar, the Method products never get old: and they smell great. While I was in the San Joaquin Valley town of Tulare picking up a vintage dining set at a thrift store, I pulled into the local Target to grab a few more cleaning supplies. Orla Kiely’s prints grabbed me immediately. I was easily, and happily suckered. The ginger pair hand soap is offering a glimmer of hope in a kitchen that still has a long way to go.
