  • Where Are The Men In Organic And Sustainable Fabrics?

    So I’ve been doing the Fabulous Fabrics series for a while, and I’ve been noticing something. HarmonyArt Organic Design, Amenity, Oliveira Textiles, Mod Green Pod, Rubie Green, Kirin & Co, Thea and Sami – all of the designers behind these wonderful fabrics are women.

  • Fabulous Fabrics: Why Bamboo Often Isn’t

    As sustainable fabrics go, bamboo certainly has buzz on its side.  I’ll admit to having fallen under its spell, though I ended up fairly unhappy with the durability of the socks and sheets I purchased while trying to avoid non-organic cotton. Living here in Austin, I can attest that under the right conditions, bamboo doesn’t […] More

  • Mosaics, Anyone? Recycled Glass To The Rescue!

    When Great Green Goods mentioned Bedrock Industries and their recycled glass robot people on Monday, I knew I should pop over and check it out.  Why?  Well, I love robots.  Who doesn’t?  But what actually caught my eye was this part of the Great Green Goods post: “They have a large selection of tile and […] More

    Welcome to the fifth Carnival of Green Crafts! Another carnival, another bunch of craft-a-licious green goodness.  A bunch of, um, somewhat disturbing craftiness.  Glue sniffing.  Hitting things with sticks.  Metal saws.

  • Fabulous Fabrics: GreenSage Store

    GreenSage bills itself as a store for “sustainable building and furnishing.”  As part of that identity, they sell a number of natural, organic, and hemp fabrics – including the 100% hemp print you see here, which unfortunately for the hobby crafter is $50 per yard. Several times I’ve thought about whether to include a fabric […] More
