“We are a freshly new start up company that connects with the modern world, while bringing a rustic & warm feeling to our work. We have our own inspirations from what we create, but thrive to customize our pieces for our customers; we tap into their creativity to make it more meaningful to them.
We offer (all custom) crochet scarves, headbands, toques, blankets, for both adults and kids; and even have sweaters & hair pieces for the little ones.
We also do (unique) woodwork. From personalized cutting boards to unique signs for your home. No two pieces are alike as most of our wood is salvaged from our very own prairie backyard.”
