Welcome to our Etsy shop.

All of the items for sale were designed and crafted by us in our smoke-free Burlington, Vermont manufactory.

We love to make and take take pride in making well. Our products are rugged and durable (except when they are delicate and ephemeral). As turtles we take the time to get things right: each stitch in its place, wood sanded smooth as bone. That's the slow and steady process that can lead to inspired results. Flight is where you end up: joyfully made, exuberant products.
