Mary Andrews contacted us this week to share photos and details of her wedding via her Real Weddings post on The Etsy Blog.

The gorgeous affair took place in Richmond, Virginia where Mary, a Merchandise lead for Etsy, and Tim, a freelance writer, blogger and food stylist work and live.

 Mary used our seeded paper to create her save-the-date, featured in the invite suite above.  We love working with all our brides, but this was one rather special considering she works for and sourced many of her wedding elements directly from Etsy.  For a list of all Mary’s resources, check out her My Etsy Wedding page.  And to follow Mary and Tim’s love story and their adventures in creating a sustainable life  in Richmond, check out their blog 17 Apart.















We were pleasantly surprised to discover our handmade wrapping paper included in a list of “Fantastic under $50 finds” on the front page of Etsy last week!

The list was curated by Covet Garden, an Etsy Tastemaker and online publication based in Toronto that “peek(s) into the homes and lives of some of the city’s most interesting people”.

We love the concept behind the magazine, profiling “spaces that have not been styled by interior decorators”, focusing on the “inspirational not the aspirational”.  That is a mantra we can get behind!

wrappingwrapping.3We also love the selection of wrapping papers we are offering this holiday season!  The extra touch of packaging a gift in something beautiful and handmade not only adds a lot to the presentation, it illustrates the time and thought that went into every last detail.

Woven works of art created with our bias cut, hand dyed, Earth Silk ribbon

One of our clients, artist and teacher Mary Klotz,  is creating beautiful woven works of art with our hand dyed Earth Silk ribbon. The variegated color combinations combined with the intricate woven pattern create an optical illusion of depth and rich tones of color.


Mary Klotz is developing some new project kits and working on a book at her studio located near Frederick, Maryland.  She has given seminars and workshops on triaxial weaving at regional and national conferences and to various guilds.  You can find her at

Our biased cut, silk ribbon blend #058 was used to create this beautiful piece of artwork.  This blend can be found at

Of The Earth’s, hand dyed silk ribbons come in an array of solids and blends, 5 different widths and 2 different finishes.  You can view our entire collection at and on Etsy at
