Eco-friendly goods from Handmade RAIN artists!

Did you know there are several ways that our artists try to be eco-friendly?  Here are just a few:


The sterling silver that Marlo Miyashiro from Marlo & Natasha Studio uses to fabricate her jewelry is certified reclaimed.








The soap that Kim Wilton at Pepo Park makes is vegan.






The paper that Sarah Rollinger at Tutta Lou Press prints on is part post-industrial waste cotton.



 



And of course Heidi Kappes Belinsky of Haute Goat Cashmere reclaims the 100% cashmere fabric for her scarves from second-hand sweaters.
