A Forest Troll and Their Art

Forest centred and inspired! Brought up in worlds of make-believe I love creating art that is functional and evokes the care I feel for this beautiful wild world.

I use found images, photoshop, mending, screen printing, stamping, Eco-Printing, natural dye and other methods to create my work. I create the majority of the work on this shop but I don't have the equipment for everything (we can’t all have sticker makers especially in a camper!)

I’m on Instagram as @foresttrollart go there for shop updates or TikTok as forest_troll for forest life things.

Sustainability Efforts:

The Art
Hand screen printed patches are printed on bolt ends and remnants from a local fabric shop or upcycled fabric. Items such as buttons or postcards that need to be printed by machine are made locally to reduce fossil fuel use from shipping.

Mailing & Packaging
The majority of items are mailed in envelopes that are unbleached and made of partially recycled paper. Larger orders are mailed in compostable bioplastic mailers. The tape used to affix shipping labels is cellulose film tape and labels are printed on partially recycled paper or once printed paper.
Other materials used are recycled cardboard for backing buttons and recycled comics, newsprint, and kraft paper for wrapping.
Making the majority of all packing materials recyclable and/or compostable!

The Studio
The 1968 camper studio of Forest Troll Art is 100% solar-powered and was built with a majority reused and/or repurposed materials

Etsy
As you can tell this shop is hosted on Etsy.com which as a company has made great steps to reduce its ecological impact. From its sustainability blog,
" We met our 2020 goal to source 100% of our electricity from renewable energy; we also met our goal to run a carbon neutral business in 2020. Additionally, Reverb began offsetting 100% emissions from shipping."

Frequently asked questions
Are your patches washable?

Yes! All of my patches have been heat set and can be washed as per usual. But do you really wash your crust vest?

Why hasn't my item arrived yet?

The mail system works in mysterious ways. If it’s been more than 20 days I will be happy to send your order again(or grant refund). But sad that it was lost...

How big are the Pronoun Pins?

They are 2.25”! Which feels small on the internet but in real life is the size of a 50¢ piece! Or the top of a soda can!

Can you ship to “blank” country?

Unfortunately the risk of art being lost in the mail or damaged is too great for me to ship overseas. Shipping domestic allows me to deliver better quality customer care and resolve any issues that may arise quickly and economically for all parties.

When will you restock “blank”?

Currently I am restocking pins every other week and patches every other month. There have been supply chain issues with materials for pins & postcards so they may be delayed some weeks. Message me if you have additional questions!
