- - Inspiration - -
I cannot even begin to imagine how many hours I have spent nursing my two little ones. During one of those quiet, dreamy moments as I looked into my infants' eyes, it sort of dawned on me; breastfeeding is about as local as eating can get. My little nursling is a locavore!
WIth that image in mind, I decided to create this print. I used the international breastfeeding symbol as a starting point and went from there.
Show your support for breastfeeding and eating local all at the same time!

The print is made with an original lino cut block (4 x 5 inches) that was drawn, carved and printed by me. The ink is fabric-safe, water-based and non-toxic. All the colors are hand-mixed by me and can never be replicated perfectly. This particular print is a true black.

This is a LONG SLEEVE 100% cotton onesie. I wish you could feel this shirt. It is thick and substantial, sure to stand up to whatever your little one can throw at it.
It was dyed by me in a small batch (10-12 shirts at a time) using fiber reactive dyes to ensure they'd be safe for your babe. The dye actually reacts with the fiber rather than simply coating it. The small batch dye process results in a shirt that is truly one of a kind. Dyeing in this manner yields some irregularities that add to the character of the finished product. This particular shirt is a warm burgundy (has pinkish tones).
After dyeing, the shirts were thoroughly rinsed and then washed in a non-toxic, biodegradable soap. It comes to you ready-to wear (or gift!).
