Wanna go green this Christmas?

Furoshiki - the hottest gift-wrapping craze going!

What better way to make a beautiful package than making it eco-friendly as well? In our newsletter this month, we discuss Furoshiki, a Japanese traditional wrapping cloth.

Watch this video to see various ways to make them!

There are *SO* many fabric options available for these. Lighter-weight fabrics will work better than heavy (think tapestry-weight) fabrics for this project. We have been Furoshiki wrapping fools around the office lately and thought we would share what we have learned.

INCREDIBLE new dinnerware!!

Okay, so after being punished properly, I am now working on blogging much more frequently. Perhaps some of the "behind the scenes" processes will allow it.

Our product development team has been on the hunt for new dinnerware due to the discontinuation of several lines we were carrying and - wow - did they find a GREAT collection!

We have a new partner, Mustard Seed and Moonshine stoneware. This is a South African company with a tradition of beautiful botanical earthenware. It is absolutely to DIE for!!

Here is a little about them, taken from their corporate website:
Mustardseed & Moonshine was founded by Kate Carlyle in Cape Town, South Africa in 1992 to celebrate her love of the botanical form. The idea was to make beautiful ceramic flowers that were both usable and lasting, flowers that were meticulously crafted, and yet simultaneously robust and functional.

Although Mustardseed & Moonshine has grown over the years, it remains a studio of dedicated artists and the pride that goes into each piece is tangible. The artists who hand-make all of these delicate flowers from Ramekins to Salad Bowls in high-fired earthenware, work with love and dedication to bring a truly original piece to you. All our work is dishwasher, oven and microwave proof.
