Welcome to made by Pixies information and conditions. Our aim is to provide you with superior quality and service, and products that will delight you. You make us feel proud to do what we do, and we thank you for even considering our stuff:)

Pixies love rich colours, unusual shapes, beautiful materials, and are always on the look-out for glitter and glam. Their discoveries are their most precious possessions: whether it’s a fabulous feather, a new tone of deep vibrant green, or a stylish silver clasp…

The Pixies travel the world, and when they come home, our workshop is their safe haven. Products are inspired by nature, and hand made from beautiful fibers and fabrics.

The Pixies are adamant that only buyers with a truly discerning eye will recognize the workmanship that has gone into producing any of their pieces. Their craft can be understood only by those with the same passion for hand made and sense of what is wise (for people, planet or other)… Thank you for being one of them.

Our products are made in a spirit of sustainable consumption and fair trade. We don't heat much, one of us is vegetarian... and whenever we have equal choices in terms of supplies we purchase, we will opt for the one that is most sustainable, or that favours local suppliers or fair trade initiatives (such as recycled sari silk ribbons). We plan to seek out more eco options as we go along... Our ambition is to save the world, or failing that, to do our bit!

The Pixies and their hosts thank you for reading this and for being interested in their products. Without you, they would possibly starve:)
