Announcement    I hand weave the fresh lavender I grow into Victorian lavender filled wands using 30 colors of ribbon for 5 sizes.
The lavender crop this summer of 2022 has now been completely harvested.
Each summer I use over 45,000 stems of fresh lavender to make the handcrafted aromatics I create from long stemmed English lavender grown here at Pedricks.
Only summer blooming long stemmed English lavender, can be used to make lavender wands during a short 2-3 month period of time each year. Too soon and the flowers are too moist, too late and the stems will break instead of bend.
Due to the drought in California, there were fewer stems long enough to use for wands this year. So sizes, numbers, and range of colors available this year is already limited. Please write if you have a specific request. Thanks!

Orders for large numbers of one color for events taking place prior to summer, or after summer, need to be placed either while the wands can be made or before the June to Setember season. I sure wish I could make them year round!!

The wands themselves last for many years. I have seen photos of a wand over 40 years old with the caption that it still smelled wonderful!

I am happy to fill wholesale orders and I have a Wholesale category in my shop. I am also happy to create custom "Reserved for..." listings for combinations of sizes and forms so you can stock your gift shop. Large wholesale orders of 100 wands or more receive a 60% discount over the per each price. Please write me to find out what sizes and colors I currently have on hand.

Thank-you!

Video summary: I grow summer blooming long stemmed English Lavender to weave into my lavender wands with 30 shades of satin ribbon.

Pedricks - The Present and The Potential Future

For over ten years now, I have been hand weaving the long stemmed English lavender I grow into wands using over 30 colors of double-sided satin ribbon and I make them in five sizes. From tiny 6" wands to huge over 16" wands. Lavender falls off of it's stems when they begin to get dry and the ladies of the Victorian age created this unique means of preserving the lavender from their gardens so it could be used for many years to scent their clothing or any room they were in. I even keep a few on the dashboard of my car.
I have seen a photo of a lavender wand that was 40 years old, with the caption that it still smelled wonderful.
Since only long stemmed English lavender can be used to make these wands, I cannot begin making them until each summers crop is mature enough, and then I have to stop once the stems are no longer supple enough to bend and the flowers begin to fall off of the stems when they are cut.
Every year, I use over 45,000 stems of fresh lavender to make over 3,000 lavender wands! So if you have an event and need large numbers of wands, please contact me during the summer so I can custom make an order for you!

In the future, I hope to be able to spend more time drawing, painting, and wood-working.
Check back once in a while to see what else might be new here!

    I have always loved working with my hands to create. From drawing and painting, to knitting and embroidery. When I first began to weave my lavender into wands in the Victorian way, it was as if my hands already knew how to do this. It is a joy!
