Jungalow® started as a design blog in Justina Blakeney’s tiny, plant-filled living room back in 2009 and has since grown into a lifestyle brand and the go-to source for jungalicious design goods and inspiration. Our shop features signature Justina Blakeney Home® and Jungalow® collections designed in our Los Angeles studio as well as a curated ensemble of creative, colorful, modern goods from around the globe. We are also proud to offer an exclusive, rotating selection of high quality, limited edition art prints from an international group of female artists.
Our hope is that Jungalow is a place that will inspire you to tap into your own creativity, connect with nature at home and help you to bring good vibes home. We hope that the pieces that you discover here will give you that little spark you need to make your home a little bit more colorful, patternful and jungalicious – but most importantly… a little bit more you. Thank you for stopping by, and welcome to our wild world.
As part of our mission to help foster the human/nature connection, each time you purchase anything from our shop, at least two trees are planted with every single order. (Read more about that program here.)
At Jungalow we’re all about good vibes, and that includes our process, partners and our products. Our aim is to design, manufacture and sell products made with love, care and with materials and practices that keep our communities and the environment in mind.
Sustainability efforts: Every day we work to make changes toward more responsible and more sustainable business practices. We try to incorporate natural, recycled, recyclable, and compostable materials wherever we can. You may receive a pre-loved box when you order something from us! We work with our vendors to optimize our packaging and reduce our use of single-use plastics and styrofoam. It is a continual work in progress, but we work with one vendor at a time to convert to more sustainable packaging solutions. It is our goal to be free of single-use-plastics and styrofoam by 2022.
Our vendors use non-toxic finishes on our Justina Blakeney© ceramics that are not chemically harmful to the environment. In addition, the manufacturing process of our ceramics is water-efficient, which uses waterless dyeing, finishing & printing to actively conserve water. Our Justina Blakeney© rugs are handcrafted in India the original way, from dip-dyeing the wool to the intricate task of weaving. The entire process is completely done by hand by a community of proud artisans. Pillows go through the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which is a test and certification system for textile materials, in all processing stages, to ensure no harmful substances are present.
We incorporate organic fabrics when possible, and upcycle fabric remnants into new products. If products are made with recycled, upcycled or organic fabrics or materials, it will say so in the product listing.
Through our “Trees For The Future” initiative, we have planted over 48,000 trees (& counting!) with your help, which not only helps the environment but also helps to provide food security and income to communities that rely on the trees in Africa.
Our Vendors: We work with vendors from all over the world to source, design, and bring products to life. From ceramics made in Vietnam, to textiles woven in India, to our wallpapers printed here in the U.S.A., we partner closely with our vendors to produce quality products but make consistent efforts to look out for the artisans, communities and the environment along the way.
Giving Back: We also give back to non-profit organizations whose missions we believe in and support. In the last few years, we have donated to the ACLU, Black Lives Matter, Girls Who Code, Girltrek, The Rainforest Alliance, The National Organization for Women, The Downtown Women’s Center, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, among others.
We are far from perfect and have a long way to go to meet all of our goals. However, we promise that we do care, we do listen, and we ask a lot of questions. We continually strive for growth and appreciate all of your support and suggestions along the way.
