Sustainable wedding table ideas from LIGA

cork placemats and coasters Known for their love of nature's wonder material - cork, LIGA's sustainable tableware collections are a stylish and unique wedding dining-setting choice. With their extensive collection of placemats, coasters, trays and candle holders, all made from eco-frendly and recycled materials, LIGA create clean and contemporary pieces, bringing a naturally beautiful element to the tablescape.

Each with a unique grain and pattern, the organic cork is lightweight and soft to touch, a wonderful raw material which is naturally water resistant and easy to clean. Sourced from the Montado Forests in Portugal, LIGA's cork is hand-harvested using age-old skills without damaging the trees or the delicate eco-systems which thrive in the forests. Once cork has been made into a product it continues to absorb CO2, so a living and breathing piece of homeware.

With their ethos to make sustainable materials affordable and useable for everyday products, LIGA draws inspiration from nature, with designs evoking the spirit of coastal and country living to bring a natural sense of balance. Choose from natural or the darker smoked finish cork or select from the variety of themes and imagery within their collection including florals and botanicals, birds, coastal inspired designs, stars or geometric and abstract patterns. Use these eye-catching place settings as the base for wedding table design which can double-up perfectly as a sustainable and useful wedding favour - a long-lasting memento of the day!

Featuring a kaleidoscope of colour from the EVA plastic waste used, combined with natural cork, each piece is unique. Alternatively select from the Dash collection which is a blend of cork with recycled rubber with a dark, mottled pattern.

"A combination of sustainable materials with a practical, simple design is what LIGA is all about. Finding ways to creatively use waste materials for the good, transforming them into stylish and functional home pieces, built to last is how we hope to make a difference," comments Jennie Elderkin, founder of LIGA. "Our cork pieces bring such a warmth and natural texture to a wedding table, with the couple able to express their individual style in their choice of design. Gifting these sustainable pieces to the guests is such a wonderful and sustainable way of showing thanks, whilst supporting our planet".
