Creating the Cornish Gems St Ives Chilly’s bottle
Cornish Gems and The Coffee Lounge are so excited at the introduction of the St Ives Chilly’s bottle. Designed by local artist and Coffee Lounge manager, Emma Fashokun, the bottle features an engraved view of the historic harbour that is so recognisable to locals and visitors alike.
The design process began with an idea to encapsulate an image that was intrinsically St Ives that could be reproduced accurately within the narrow confines of a 500 ml Chilly bottle.
Initial drawings proved too detailed for the engraving process and so a simplified pen and ink style was adopted.
There were two final designs to choose from, one featuring Smeatons Pier and the three arches and one showing the entire harbour as seen from the railway station. It was decided to proceed with the latter, as so many St Ives lovers feel it’s that first glimpse of St Ives when you return that tugs the heart strings and makes you return again and again. This represents so many of our Cornish Gems customers who simply fall in love with St Ives and can’t wait to return!
Of course, being a Chilly’s bottle means that your drinks are kept cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours! It is so important to us at The Coffee Lounge to promote sustainable living and the reduction of single use plastics. As such, we are part of the ‘Refill’ scheme that encourages the use of multi use refillable bottles. Find out more at https://refill.org.uk/
