PRODUCTS

Our eco & animal-friendly products are designed and created using Pinatex (a natural, sustainable, earth and animal-friendly textile made from pineapple leaf fibers) and fabric made from recycled plastic PET bottles, as well as 100% cotton totes and eye pillows. Our picnic and gin sets are 100% biodegradable.  Our new addition, a plantable childrens story book, is handmade using recycled paper and has lettuce seeds embedded in the covers.
