We love working with brands and helping them to collaborate with our bloggers – so much so that we are always on the lookout for exciting people to talk about and share with our bloggers. During our extensive research to find the hottest trends and coolest products, we come across up-and-coming brands that we just have to introduce you to! Some of the brands below you’ll find in our opportunity board, others are simply companies our detectives found online. Let’s take a look at what’s trending in the HBC Edit this week.

Sibberi Birch Water160405_Sibberi_011

Creators of naturally nutritious birch water, bamboo water and maple water, Sibberi are at the frontier of delivering  freshly tapped sappy tree water straight from the forest. It tastes better than it sounds, we promise. Birch water is excellent for helping your body to cleanse itself, as it supports kidney and liver function whilst speeding up the process of elimination – goodbye toxins! If you prefer to mask the taste of the..err.. forest, then the maple water may be more to your liking. With a subtle, sweet taste, it’s a party for your taste buds and a treat for your body!

Despite this, gym bags are just about the only piece of activewear that have been neglected in the latest athleisure craze. Until now, that is. Introducing Caraa: uniting fashion, performance and practicality, Caraa have created super stylish bags that transition perfectly from morning pilates to bottomless brunch.
