Announcement    Hello! Welcome to Curly Willow Collections! I’m super excited that you stopped by. I’m Vicki and this is my design studio. Let’s get this first bit of information on the table… I LOVE COLOR! And that’s what you will see here. Beautiful color inspired by all the seasons. I love creating one of kind bags and gifts for you to enjoy, featuring my Signature Wool Felt Wristlets. Each item I make is either one of a kind or a limited edition item. My other passion is giving back to the Alzheimer’s Association. A disease that hits every single member of a family and is very personal to me, as I’ve lost my father to the disease. Each time you purchase something pretty, YOU make a donation to #ENDALZ too! Buy something pretty = FIND A CURE! Let’s do this together!

HANDCRAFTED
Each item is handcrafted with quality in mind. I do my very best to create something that is beautiful and will also last. Each item made is one of kind. I do not make multiples of the same item. When you buy from me, you are purchasing something no one else will have. Creating one of a kind goods allows me to to use my creativity at it's best!

My Signature Wool Felt Wristlets are unique to only me. This is my original signature design and is slow-crafted, taking 2+ hours to create one. Every step is hand-made by me in my studio. From cutting each geometric shape, fusing it onto a mid-weight canvas, and stitching it in place. Each step has been perfected to give you a quality bag that will last and is worth your investment. This attention to detail on each piece is what my customer's love. Not only are you getting something beautiful that shows off your style, but something beautifully made! And, made just for you!

GIVE BACK
I do give back generously at the end of each year to the Alzheimer's Association. My Dad was affected by this disease and past away in December of 2016. My goal is to keep giving to help find a cure. Alzheimer's affects not only the affected but the whole entire family. The care needed for an Alzheimer's patient is a 24/7 job. My siblings and I did our best to help my Mom during the time she was caring for my Dad, but that 24/7 kind of care definitely took it's toll on my Mom. So, I feel everyone should be giving back to whatever makes you who you are.

ECO-FRIENDLY
The other thing I try to do my best is to provide products that are eco-friendly. Our felt is a blend of 20-35% wool with the rest rayon; approximately 1mm thick. Our wool is only from merino sheep, prized for their quality and softness and making the felt strong, resistant to pilling and colors vibrant. All of our packaging is eco-friendly. I use Eco-enclose shipping bags and usually upcycle items I already have to make your packages pretty.

Creating and Living a Colorful Life!

Why Curly Willow Co as a shop name? Did you know you can grow new curly willow from a cutting? So, welcome to my journey of starting over!

I started my Etsy shop in 2011 with colorful patterns on printables like cards and posters. But, my love of patterns and color grew when I taught myself how to sew and found beautiful merino wool felt. I stumbled into creating these wool felt bags by trying to recreate an argyle pattern with the felt. I found I could create all kinds of patterns in all kinds of color combinations.... and fell in love!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I'd love for your to say HI! And, convo me if you need anything customized!
