Beastly Threads is finally here!

June 10, 2015

To be honest, I really wasn't sure that this day would ever come and came close to throwing in the towel about 100 times.  When I first came up with the idea behind Beastly Threads in August 2012, I had absolutely no idea that making a scarf, essentially a pretty piece of fabric, could ever take so much time, research, and patience.  I thought it would be quick and easy and I would be selling within a few months.  The reality is that eco-friendly, ethically-produced, soft, and beautiful from all angles is a pretty tough combo.  I was told time and time again that achieving one objective would mean compromising on another.  I could get eco-friendly but shouldn't expect to also get soft.  I could get soft and beautiful from all angles (bold colors on both sides) but would need to throw the environment and positive working conditions out the window.  Thank goodness for Google (how often do we all say that??) which finally connected me with the extraordinary artists at Bagru Textiles in Bagru, India and Makers Row for connecting me with the master sewers at Olive Loom in Arkansas and Victory Stitch in Florida.  They helped me achieve all of my goals and bring you these gorgeous textiles, each of which supports critical wildlife and habitat preservation efforts.  It would be a huge understatement to say that I am thrilled that Beastly Threads is finally here!

The Incredible Effort to Save the Jaguar
The Incredible Effort to Save the Jaguar

April 02, 2019

The Jaguar is the largest big cat native to North America and the third largest cat in the world. It has played an important role in North and South American religion, mythology, and art due to its beautiful spotted coat, ferocity, strength, and elusiveness. But being revered for millennia has not spared the jaguar from the effects of habitat loss, hunting, and conflicts with livestock. Northern jaguar numbers have dropped dramatically over the last 100 years. To ensure the survival of this extraordinary animal, the 55,000 acre Northern Jaguar Reserve was established in Sonora, Mexico in 2003 to provide a safe place for jaguars to roam, raise families, and hopefully, grow in population.

We asked Turtle Southern, Northern Jaguar Project (NJP) Coordinator, to tell us more about the northern jaguar, the NJP reserve, threats, and ways for us to help.
