Phaeton, the son of Phoebus Apollo the Sun God asked his father to drive the Sun Chariot pulled by wild horses. For a time his travels went well, then suddenly the horses bolted and the chariot came to close to the Earth, setting it ablaze. The entire Earth was set ablaze, the forests burned and the land parched.

The God Zeus, in an gesture to save the earth, struck Phaeton dead with a lightning bolt. Phaeton's body fell into the River Eridanus where the nymphs of the stream pulled his body from the stream and buried him on the river bank.

After a time his three sisters, the Heliades, came in search of the grave. When they found it, they vowed to stay with their dead brother and wept day and night. Their wasting bodies took root and became covered with the bark of the surrounding trees. Their arms turned to branches and eventually, the three were transformed into trees. Their tears continued to flow, and as they hardened in the sun, turned to amber.

This Green Sleeve pays homage to the protection of the Heliades, capturing the color of the protective brown forest and the amber of their tears. Soft brown fabric with an organic forest pattern gives way to sturdy grommets and brown lacing. At the top is a charm of brass, citrine and amber-colored stones that flash and sparkle in the light.

Made by NightBlooming's family, Green Sleeves are reusable replacements for the cardboard sleeves that come with take-away coffee cups. Equally at home on any size paper cup (simply tighten or loosen the laces to accommodate the cup) or on a reusable cup, Green Sleeves provide additional insulation, keeping your drink hotter or colder longer. This fabric has been given new life, saving it from the landfill. A perfect gift for you or your eco-conscious friends!

Wash in cold water after removing the laces and charm.
