The first all-wool sleeping bag I’ve ever seen, made with a wool knit cover and stuffed with domestic wool batting. Can be used indoors and outside. Will keep you warm down to 20-30 degrees. “Wool is the most comfortable and luxurious outdoor weather fabric. This fiber allows the skin to breathe without condensing (trapping moisture). When sleeping beneath wool there is a calming effect…Wool also has an amazing ability to stay warm even when moist or wet, which is what makes this a choice option for outdoor use. This sleeping bag is unlike anything in the past. It is light, fluffy, retains it’s loft, and is so soft you would think it is silk.”
SAMINA was designed to incorporate everything we now know the human body needs for a good night’s sleep. It is a complete sleep system made of natural materials—imported from Austria—that includes a wool mattress topper, grounding pad, latex rubber mattress, wood slat frame, and even an adjustable bed frame made of wood, plus support pillows. In addition there are orthopedic sleep pillows, duvets stuffed with “100 % organic virgin sheep’s wool obtained only from sheep that run wild” in a 100% organic cotton case, and metal-free, sustainable wood bed frames in all types of wood. “The natural materials used by SAMINA have a positive effect on recuperation and sleep quality. Much consideration is given to sourcing the valuable raw materials so that only the best quality, eco-friendly, sustainable and healthy materials are selected to create SAMINA products.” These include organic virgin wool from free-running sheep, natural untreated ash wood, 100% natural rubber, and cotton and wool fabrics. These beds are found in many upscale hotels in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. SAMINA has 50 retail stores in the German-speaking markets (Austria, Germany, Switzerland) and is now available in the US through SAMINA North America.
Gorgeous, gourmet wooden spoons, scoops, measuring spoons and cups, handmade by members of a family that live on a farm in Tennessee. “We use local fallen hardwoods almost exclusively. It is a delight to us to be able to utilize a resource that would otherwise decay and waste on the forest floor and it is so incredible to open up a log and find such a beautiful variety of art inside. We are continually amazed that God has hidden such beauty underneath the rough bark of the tree. This creative way of sourcing wood allows us to offer a really stunning variety of wood types, grains and colors…We finish all of our wooden products with our signature blend of olive oil and beeswax. Over time, we’ve come to call it wood butter, and the younger members of the family especially love to hand finish our products with the cream. It is amazing to watch a piece of dry wood burst to life when wood butter is spread over the smooth surface and rubbed in. It’s one of the most enjoyable parts of the whole process. “ Expensive.
“ Unique bags made with great resources from great people….When you choose a STRUCTUREbag purse or accessory, you know you are getting a bag not only hand-crafted in the USA, but eco-friendly as well. The canvas on your bag is 100-percent organic. The vintage button on your bifold is often upcycled. The high quality, 100-percent wool fabrics are hand-felted by a one-woman-shop in South Carolina. We source our labels and printed canvases from other small businesses around the country.”
Classic and flavored ketchup made from organic ingredients. Contains organic cane sugar. “The three of us met as MBA students at the University of Oregon, where we discovered our shared passion for food and experimenting with new flavors. For a class project, we decided that conventional ketchup just wasn’t cutting it for us. So we decided to make our own.”
“modern beauty alchemy” body care products that go way beyond organic.”I use ingredients that I love: wild, raw, edible, seasonal, organic and fair trade. They are as close to their origin as possible and safe, especially during manufacture since I am the skin chef who’s making everything. As with food, seasonal, fresh, quality ingredients make all the difference which is why the botanicals I extract are either wild-grown in my biodynamic garden in West Hollywood or ethically wildcrafted by myself from pristine sources in the Hudson Valley where I spend my summers. The essential oils I source are distilled from wildcrafted plants and enhance the benefits of my freshly extracted botanicals. This is how the body should be nourished, inside and out.” And that’s only the beginning…
A unique spicy sauce made of Goji berries and caceo with smoky chipotles. “Ingredients are organic, vegan, gluten & GMO free and (mostly) raw. “Chicaoji’s unique combination of flavors registers across the entire palate. Sweet and tangy goji berries balance the right bitterness of cacao. Tart apple cider vinegar compliment’s agave nectar’s sweetness. Smoky chipotles heat things up jest enough while Celtic Sea Salt™ weaves all the flavor together. I believe food is medicine. I selected Chicaoji’s ingredients because of their long recognized health benefits. But they’re not just nutritional—they’re delicious!” Check out the ingredients tab for a whole page of information about each ingredient.
Hats for women and men in classic styles, made from natural fibers. They also make custom hats from measurements and photographs. ” I collect vintage wool fabric and use it to create 1920s style Cloches, Men’s Driving Caps and Irish Walking Hats among other styles. The fabulous quality of vintage fabrics really inspires me. I hope you are as impressed with that quality as I am. For spring and summer hats I use high quality linens and cottons – many I import from Japan. I’ve been a Costume Properties Artisan and made accessories for the stage for over ten years. I’ve worked with a variety of designers from around the world and have created everything from foul-mouthed puppets to leather gorgets to spats, crowns and sword belts. I enjoy it all but I absolutely LOVE making hats and hope you enjoy them too!”
