**********LUNCH SACKS WITH A STORY TO TELL***********

I love taking vintage textiles and organic textiles and turning them into something fun and useful. They are ECO Friendly and the textiles are strong and beautiful.

*****A WORD ABOUT MY TEXTILES****
All of the textiles I work with are organic. I choose them very carefully so they are safe for your family and mine. My shop offers not only a Great way to BE GREEN but a unique way to introduce a little bit of history into your everyday life. Many of my Vintage Textiles come from family trousseaus and have original family monograms on them. Depending on where the cut falls, an item you receive from my shop may have one of these special monograms on it. I find that it adds to the history and the charm. (Please let me know if you prefer not to have something with a monogram)

My kids just love learning about all the different textile histories. Teaching them to reuse,up cycle, and renew just makes good Earth sense.

I offer both unlined (breathable) and lined bags and sacks. The linings are
1.A food safe water proof nylon which means no PVC, no phthalates, no BPA,and no lead.........I have not sealed the seams to make them water-proof.
2.An Organic Cotton. Anywhere you see a lined bag and you want Organic cotton lining instead, just put a note to the seller upon purchase and I will substitute it for you.
3.An Organic Linen Lining works great for home bread storage.

I also have an assortment of bags and sacks, coasters, napkins and cozy bowls.

These are easy care, made to last designs. Unlined items are finished with "french" seams which adds to the strength and beauty.

I package all of my items in recycled paper.
