New Holiday Handmade Papers – Eco Friendly Gift Wrap

Here is a look at our latest additions to our lotka paper line. We hope you like these new designs. These should just whet your appetite however as we are looking to add many more designs as we stock our new retail store in North Seattle! We are excited to keep taking small steps to our grand opening celebration.
We will keep you posted as we creep closer.

The papers below are all ready for the holidays. We have them in 20″ x 30″ sheets in our light weight (20g) material. These papers can be used multiple times if you are one of those people who carefully lift the tape rather then tear your packages open.

Let us know what you think!

Hydrangea Silk and Flowers

We just shipped this custom ribbon to a happy bride.  She wanted to order our pressed hydrangea flowers but she needed a silk ribbon to match the hue of the flowers.  We have over 150 colors in our hand dyed silk ribbon line but none that were quite the right shade, until now!

We offer custom dyed silk ribbon with a low three spool minimum purchase. Once we have your color matched, chances are it will become part of our growing line of silks. For those customers looking for an exclusive ribbon for product packaging or a signature line we can offer you a five year license of your custom color if you pay a $400 development and licensing fee. We will keep your design out of our product line while it is under license.

Relay for Life of Westminster is this weekend!

Kevin and I love to support great causes so when our family friend, Lydia Grosso, asked for a paper donation from Of The Earth we happy obliged.  She is head of Team GI-JOE and their team has been working hard to raise money to support people affected by cancer.  Her team will be running in the Relay for Life this weekend in Westminster, California.

We shipped Lydia packs of our seeded computer paper which she turned into bookmarks and cards filled with information about breast cancer, for their fight back cancer give away.

If you would like to donate to her team, you can find them at this link:

Here is some information about this event from her Facebook page.
