Flora & Fabric uses plant matter to eco-print and eco-dye textiles, without the use of any synthetic materials or chemicals. The eco-dyeing process involves bundling leaves, flowers, stems, or food waste in natural fabric, applying heat or steam, and results in a sustainably created, one-of-a-kind luxury item.
Jackelope Treasures has an array of one of a kind needle felting sculptures and accessories. Some of the treasures get wet felting involved as well.
