Announcement   A heartfelt welcome to my Etsy Shop, Anne Riggs Designs. You can see that I specialize in reusable products for your home and your family.
If you are starting to think more about sustainability, about the useful life of everything you bring into your home, and about the amount of trash your family creates, then you are probably ready to add some reusable products to your life.
My Etsy shop has been opened for four years, and so far, my biggest seller has been my Reusable "Paper" Towels! Check out the many different fabrics in which they are available!

Here is what customers are saying about my Reusable Paper Towels:

"Yes we LOVE the reusable paper towels! They have certainly met and exceeded our expectations! We will def be back for future purchases! Thank you for being SO easy to work with, fast delivery and very accommodating!"

"These towels are beautifully made and fit perfectly on my paper towel holder. They are very absorbent and soft...a great alternative to paper towels. "

DON'T wait for someone to give them to you as a gift! Buy a roll for yourself!

But my line of reusable products includes many items, from makeup pads to baby wipes, cloth napkins and menstrual pads, and everything in between!


“Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want.”
― Anna Lappe


Our world is full of things we use once and throw away. Isn't it time we vote with our wallets for the kind of world we want? Please check out my offerings of reusable products.

Many thanks to all my customers who have helped me get my small business started. I sew everyday, and it is my dream come true.

Still reading? Ready to add a bit of beauty to your sustainable lifestyle?
Have a look around my shop and find something you can't live without!

With much joy for my work and much appreciation for my loyal customers,

Anne

Beautiful mat to brighten things up while I'm doing dishes. The yellow pattern looks like pretty lemons. Love it!

These are so pretty and they work soooooo much better than the organic disposable cotton rounds that I was using before.

These are very pretty and work great. And you can use one paper towel more than once. My daughter keeps hers for the whole day which makes washing easier.

About

Reusable Products for Home and Family: Made with Love in Portland, Maine

It all started with my needing a new clothespin bag. I used my old one to create a pattern for a new one. Once I made one for myself, I made more for family and friends. Then I heard the comment that many Etsy sellers have heard, "You should make these and sell them."
And so it began.

Clothespin bags first, reusable "paper" towels next, and then on to many reusable products including makeup pads, baby wipes, cloth napkins, and more.

The way I see it, when you buy and use a reusable product you are casting your vote for sustainability. You are saying I want to take care of the earth. You are helping your family save money and create less trash. You are showing your children how to care for the world they will inherit..

Think about the "use it once and throw it away" products in you house. What could you replace them with? Have a look at the products in my Etsy shop and make a start.

Many thanks to all my customers for choosing my products to buy.

XO Anne

    How often do you get to redefine fine yourself? At age 60, when I retired from a teaching career I began to sew. I had always know how to sew since junior high school, but now I was doing it for real. I earn my living sewing!

Welcome my Etsy shop!

I've been sewing for years and I love it. One of the best parts of being retired after a career of 25+ years in teaching is to have more time to do what I love: sew.

Please read all shop policies before ordering so as to avoid any surprises.

All items for sale in my shop are handmade by me in my smoke-free and pet-free home.

Thank you!
