All of our products are made or finished by hand - people producing artful works with incredible care and pride. That also means that no two products will be exactly alike, and that there will be some imperfections. That is the beauty of hand-made products.
We adhere to best fair trade and environmental practices. We treat the people who make our products, regardless of where they are in the world, as we ourselves expect to be treated. Equally important, we strive to minimize our environmental footprint both through the materials we use and our production processes.
As an example, our outdoor rugs are made from the highest quality, 100% recycled polypropylene (plastic milk jugs, containers, etc.) enriched with state-of-the-art colorants and UV protectors. Our brooms are manfuctured from 100% renewable sorghum and bamboo, and dyed with non-toxic colors. In short, we create beauty from materials that are land-fill bound or literally grow like weeds.
