Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle website Goop is advertising a bread knife worth a whopping £262.

That’s a lot of dough! Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle website Goop is advertising a bread knife worth a whopping £262
The knife comes in three sizes – but all are currently unavailable.
The German-made accessory is made exclusively for the Hollywood star’s site, and is described as having a ‘scalloped serration specifically designed to minimize crumbs and tearing, meaning that you can take on even the crispiest baguette without the crust exploding all over the counter’.
Gwyneth is also plugging another bread knife, but this one’s 1/7 of the price at £37.
Made by Opinel, the N°116 knife – also German – come with an almost identical description.

‘A handsome bread knife with a serrated stainless steel blade and a beechwood handle (very handsome hanging out in your knife block).
‘From baguette to boule, you’ll never struggle with slicing again.’

Actress turned health guru: Gwyneth is selling an eco-friendly and sustainable sourced handmade bed for £45,000
Goop recently raised eyebrows for listing a £45,000 sustainably-sourced bed.
The site is advertising the ‘climate neutral certified’ piece, crafted by bespoke LA-based bedmaker Avocado, online.
The beds, which range in price from £30,000 to £45,000 in total, are made-to-order in three months, with the mattress alone costing a whopping £25,000.
Online, the piece was described by the starlet as ‘ridiculous but awesome’, with the description reading: ‘Rest assured, this is the trip to the moon of beds.’
The Goop website reads: ‘We applied incredibly luxurious, ethically sourced GOTS-certified organic materials to a need that’s as essential as food, air, and water: sleep.’
Sweet dreams are made of this: The bed is made of 29 layers of responsibly sourced materials, which are all put together by hand
Praising the quality of the bed as well as the craftsmanship behind it, it goes on: ‘Its custom support is the result of unparalleled craftsmanship, made using a circular manufacturing process that’s as good for us as it is for the planet.
‘So if it’s an out-of-this-world experience on a climate-neutral bespoke mattress you’re after, this is it.’
The Goop beds are made of 29 layers of sustainably sourced and organic materials, which include pure latex and heritage wool from the Goop farms in India and cashmere from royal alpaca from the Peruvian Andes.
Other layers include coco fiber from the temperate zones of Asia, “non-violent” organic silk and recycled steel coils lashed together.
Bespoke: The beds are made-to-order to the specification of the client, with 12 craftsmen working on the pieces for weeks
Meanwhile the frame is made from reclaimed wood, with handmade springs in organic cotton pockets offering the bed support and comfort.
It takes 12 craftsmen to put on bed together in two to three months with Gwyenth praising the bed as ‘standard-shattering, certified-organic, made-to-order sleep system that beautifully blurs the lines between next-level comfort and sustainability.’
Goop, founded in 2008, is known for stocking products that court attention.
On top of the bed nearing £50,000, Gwyneth is also selling luxury accessories, including £272 sustainable pillows, a cashmere blanket for £1,440, £490 sheets and a £588 duvet cover.
