product information

Partnering is important to us. With you & with our planet. 

Recycling and using reclaimed and FSC materials is a start, but we know it's not enough. We want to restore integrity to the way we live and take responsibility for the environmental impact of our choices. Though we are not fully where we want to be in terms of our carbon footprint of the company, we are taking steps every day, making choices that are sustainable for us and for generations to come.

artblocks & storyblocks & sculptures

We work with local small businesses to source the reclaimed wood we use for all our storyblocks, artblocks, story keepers, & card holders. 

Rather than varnishes that emit toxic VOC-off gassing, we finish all our pieces with natural beeswax paste to condition the raw wood. 

We have the deep joy of working with incredibly beautiful wood from trees that are hundreds of years old... It's our responsibility to replenish what we benefit from, so when a selection of our wood products are purchased, we make a donation to one tree planted, a non-profit dedicated to reforestation to around the world. Just look for this symbol to see which products plant a tree... 


Our calendars are printed & bound by Hemlock Printers, (FSC certified, a carbon neutral green printing company based in Seattle/Vancouver).


Our prints are digital reproductions of Kai's original watercolors & the work we originally paint on wood. The papers we use are for fine art, which means: museum quality, 100% cotton fiber, acid-free, lignin-free, and optical brightener (OBA) free. 

The prints are backed with a pH neutral 100% recycled board & protected by a plant based clear bag that is compostable.


    Our 4x6 flat cards come to us already printed on paper that has met FSC Standards. The paper is extra thick, sustainably sourced, elemental chlorine free (ECF), made from all recycled fibers, & 100% of the electricity used to manufacture them is matched with Green-e certified wind energy. 

    Each card comes with an envelope that is FSC certified, made using green-e certified energy.

    The 5x7 greeting cards are printed to order at our studio. You can feel good about sending these because they are 25% hemp, 75% post consumer, 100% sustainable, acid free, chlorine free, archival quality.


    The sturdy sacks that accompany our storyblock, whisper, & artblock orders are made of 100% organic cotton & are entirely food safe. They are from Eco-Bags, a certified BCorporation & Woman-Owned Business. 


    We are still moving through boxes from various companies, but all of our packaging is fully recyclable & about as close as we can get to being planet friendly & still shipping across the country and around the world...
