Mandy Behrens from Persimmon & Pine dropped me a note after she read my post on Chewing the Cud's organic cotton gift wraps and I was completely bowled over when I clicked on over to check out her Web site. She and fellow mompreneur Julie Lyderson-Jackson debuted their Savvywraps this year to coincide with the United Nation's International Year of Natural Fibers, a global campaign that seeks to "support farmers and associated industries in raising awareness of the benefits of natural fibers over synthetic and petroleum-based textiles, which are not viewed as sustainable."Natural? Sustainable? You got it, right down to the organic cotton and spun silk threads. Printed by hand using water-based inks, Savvywraps, which start at $25, comprise eco-textile blends (hemp/silk charmeuse, hemp/soy linen, hemp/organic cotton muslin, organic linen) that are occasionally garnished with sustainably harvested semiprecious gemstones.
If the designs incorporate wool, only natural fleece that has never been chemically treated or dyed is used. Even the labels sewn onto each nature-inspired Savvywrap are knit from organic cotton.
Talk about wrap stars.
