Note from shop owner *UPDATE: PLEASE READ*

Our beloved Amara Hollowbones left their body during the New Moon window on June 29. For more details about their return to the earth, you can visit this Gofundme page, created by her care team: https://www.gofundme.com/f/supportingamarahollowbones

Amara's etsy page is currently being tended by friends, slowly but surely. We hope to have the shop up and running again soon.

A message from Amara:
thank you all for your support, and for being here, called to these drawings. When folks get patches or calendars, it affirms my existence- that what i see and express as beautiful, others feel too. thank you.

from the wild earth...

I base out of a small cabin in a maple and tan oak forest in the siskiyou mountains of california, while holding a deep connection to the great lakes region where i was born. The sewn landscapes and drawings are inspired by the mountains, streams and forests through the seasons, my love and heartbreak for places I am close to, or too far from, and some places that no longer exist in the ways i knew them once.
I draw and sew from my experiences walking around in the forests, mountains, rivers, cities, roadsides, dumps... carrying a small hand-bound journal and a few pens, harvesting and planting wild foods and medicines and romping around in the woods with all the many creatures, beings and places i come across.
The drawings emerge of reverence and wonder, expressions of grief, sorrow, magic, beauty and awe, an expression of a convsation with the land, plants animals and people around me as i walk...
I work off- grid using a treadle sewing machine (modern janome machine connected to antique singer irons), and use a wood stove and antique cast iron iron with a spray bottle for steam pressing.
My drawings are dreams, spells, songs and prayers. An ode to the wild world, a way to express my profound love, attachment, connection, commitment to the beings I draw. an attempt to communicate something which can't be spoken... the way the earth speaks to us if we will listen. the ways that there is so much wisdom in our bones if we let it be remembered. aching dreams of the untangling from whatever it is that devours and destroys life and the ability of all beings to live in beauty. The need in me to express and share the mysteries, the turmoil, the rot, the beauty, the wildness, the secrets, the feelings that exist in ways that can't be expressed in the languages i know is the force that keeps me creating... keeps me seeking ways to connect to others that carry little seeds and memories and the yearning to continue being of this earth in a real way.
i also tattoo, and design custom art for tattoos if you're outside of my area. free to contact me if you're in california, oregon, or the great lakes region of the u.s. and canada, to find out if i might be near you! I also travel to other places, it never hurts to ask if I might be tattooing somewhere near you!

Please if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I will gladly cancel any order for any reason as long as the cancellation request is received before the item is shipped. Otherwise I will fully refund or exchange items once they are returned to me (minus shipping costs) if you are dissatisfied for any reason, as long as you haven't altered it in anyway from how it arrived. I am happy to work with you and whatever concerns you might have-- feel free to message me! It's most important that you're satisfied with what you've purchased and it feels good to you.
Payment
I accept credit cards, etsy gift cards and paypal.
Shipping
I send all silk screened patches and calendar orders via Canada Post or USPS, standard mail (depending on my current location.) Standard shipping is the least expensive and DOES NOT INCLUDE TRACKING OR INSURANCE- to include tracking would greatly increase the cost and i believe would be cost-prohibitive.

For all one of a kind items such as embroidered patches, hand bound books, tote bags, and pillow covers, these items WILL COME WITH TRACKING AND INSURANCE and the shipping costs will reflect this.

For printed materials (calendars and silk screened patches), Priority with tracking and insurance is available, extra shipping costs will apply. thanks!

If items don't arrive, or arrive damaged, please contact me and we can certainly work something out, within reason. Please be sure to double check your shipping address before ordering. If items are returned to me as undeliverable I WILL send them again to another address, but please help out by confirming-- you'll get your item much sooner.
If your items don't arrive to you due to an incorrect address, and don't get returned to me I won't be able to send you a free replacement, but will work with you to figure something out that works-- whether it be a discount or sending a slightly misprinted version.
Privacy
i will not use any of your info for anything other than shipping the items you ordered to you, or to communicate directly to you.
