BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Sunday, 9 May 2010
First, Happy Mother's Day! We are looking out at snow... snow! And I am guessing that any special plans for the day have yet to be formed (or suggested, erm).

FRESH stocks today at 9 am & 9pm (EST) on Hyena Cart. SO many lovely things by this diverse collection of artisans ~ loose tea, custom women's clothing, yarn, batik clothing, shawl pins, jewelry, soap (including the very best soap EVER Lavender Anise) and more!  The beautiful new diaper covers by Angela at Wild Child Woolies are amazing...

We are taking this stocking as an opportunity to launch some new toys and I want to share the brand new Flutterbies™ with you.
Like the popular Twirligigs™, this is a toy that only works in motion ~ which fits our unofficial family motto for dogs and kid "Better Living through Exhaustion".
Flutterbies™ are a pair of hardwood rings, sealed with our own organic beeswax polish and embellished with yards (6 yards, each, that is 18 feet per ring!) of hand dyed silk ribbons.  The ribbons are bias cut silk~ an intentional choice ~ they will softly fray around the edges over time, creating an interesting finish, and this choice means using up some of the silk 'waste' at the manufacturing level (yay!)~ this is first quality habotai silk that is trimmed from fabric bolts in processing.  This choice also means that we are able to offer such a satisfying flutter of silk at a reasonable price (vs. woven ribbon which is 4-5 x the cost). They come in a pair, one for each hand, or one for a friend to share!
Available in 10 colorways and custom colours.
Suitable for toddlers and up, although every child should be supervised when playing with strings/ ropes/ ribbons.
Completely natural, totally non-toxic.

Available today at FRESH.
And stocking at our Etsy shop as well.
