In light of yesterday's post I thought I'd share some things that I am really digging these days that are either made here at home (USA), or I am certain they are created in an ethical manner overseas.
A while back I won a giveaway on Soulemama for $100 to Silk Oak! I had been long admiring this small shop, and could not believe my good fortune to win!
Silk Oak is a woman run company in Ithaca, NY that silk screens each item they create by hand. They use organic cotton t-shirts that have been made in the US. For the work that goes into each shirt and the quality of the overall product, they are a great deal. Here is my dotty chicken shirt that I chose, and I adore it! I have worn it twice in the past four days (along with my favorite purple cords). It is comfortable and unique and it looks like my favorite chicken- Bumblebee.
With the generous gift card they gave me I was able to order another shirt for me, one for Buddy, one for Moonpie and one for Birdy. They will make their way into each stocking for each child. A special little gift for these people I love.
