handprinted organic canvas totes

this week has been busy, busy, busy with filling orders and sending stuff around the world.

these wonderful organic canvas bags are sourced from The Organic Mamas - a sydney based company with lovely organic fabrics, bags, baby clothes and great ethos to boot!

Mel, the person behind The Organic Mamas is a passionate mum whose search for organic cottons came about from her growing concern of the amount of fire retardants, chemicals and synthetic dyes that are used in the production of commercial grade baby clothes and bedding. she also has a great blog here.

BIRCHseed and The Organic Mamas have been working together for some time on joint projects here and there, as our service and products blend perfectly together with the wholesome look of a block print suiting the wonderful organic textiles and textures found in Mels products.

    i am so deliriously happy with the prints that (a) we were late for school on the morning they arrived, and (b) I can't stop looking at them for long enough to take some photos for the shop!
    yardage girl, lamina and sherrin - thanks for the great comments and I definitely agree that the canvas texture are a perfect match for the block prints.
