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!
