how we make these...
The wood for our card holders is sourced from local small businesses dedicated to repurposing razed buildings, trees that are diseased, or taken down due to storms.
This means each piece carries along its own history. We purposely do not fill in the bug holes or hide the knots & scarring. We do address the checks (the splits & cracks) that have appeared over time due to weather changes & stresses in the wood.
These holders are purposely & perfectly imperfect.
Cut by a Canadian-American artist & craftsman who lives nearby, Steve Pearson (also the former head of two nationally recognized MFA actor training programs), Fia then shapes & waxes the holders, & it's Kai's art that is on the cards.
Every card holder comes with a tag describing the origins of the pieces inside, attached by a raw silk ribbon to an organic cotton bag.
