  • Every little bit counts!

    With the devastating crisis that currently has India in its grip, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and gauge the situation with a distant, not me approach…we’ve decided to help bridge that gap by donating 10% of all sales at the shop starting May 1st to @creativedignity, an organization that works to support India’s artisan communities that at the moment are in great …
