June & December herb tea towel set. Although Fair Ivy is currently on hiatus (because we’re brewing up some great things), I’m still always on the hunt for new products that might be a good fit for a Fair Ivy box in the future. I like to say I’m writing up a little “wish list” for the coming months/years. And it was during one of those hunts that I came across the gorgeous handmade table linens from Wolf & Irving. Normally, I’m used to finding new handmade items on Etsy, so when I come across something out in the “wild” of the internet, it’s a pretty exciting experience. The website is airy, bright and cheerful—it’ll quickly draw you in. With a little scroll through their Collections, you’ll see that the range of styles are sure to hold something for everyone. Whether it’s polka dots to watercolor, the designs all feel like something straight out of Sunset Magazine. . All of them would make great wedding gifts, and would even work well as birthday gifts for women (or fancy gentleman) of all ages. I could see myself giving a set just as easily to my grandmother as I would to my best friend, which is a pretty unique ability (and consequently one which Fair Ivy strives to achieve as well). An added bonus is that each piece is eco-friendly, printed on fabric made from repurposed materials, and is hand-cut and hand-sewn (yay!). Needless to say, Wolf & Irving is definitely on my wish list now. Visit WolfandIrving.com to check them out.
Modest Elements Jewelry . Both pieces are crafted from 14k gold fill and are lightweight pieces that embrace minimalist lines- simple, easy to wear alone and they play well with others too. Much of Natalie’s work incorporates natural materials such as stones and crystals and you’ll also find layered necklaces, geometric shapes and daintily linked chains. The ring in this month’s surprise package has been hand forged and lightly hammered on the ends to add texture and detail. Each ring is open ended to allow for a cozy fit that isn’t too snug. The thin gold band can be stacked with other rings to make a bolder statement or worn by itself for just a bit of shine. Along with the hammered ring, October’s subscribers received a delicate crystal bracelet, handmade from gold fill chain and set with a spring clasp. The chain bracelet has an understated elegance and is an easy to wear piece that is perfect for everyday use. With an extra long tail, this gold bracelet is a breeze to clasp and lets you find the perfect length for a comfy fit. If you’d like to see more offerings from Natalie, check out her Etsy shop and be sure to follow her Instagram feed for updates on the latest pieces she’s created. For our Fair Ivy subscribers, a special discount code has been included in each package.
Lacy Lou Designs. The clutch purse she designed for our Fair Ivy subscribers combines grey pinstripes and a white vegan leather in a subtle color palette that plays well with any outfit. Every Fair Ivy item is handmade, vegan, hand wrapped and chosen specifically for our subscribers. This month’s Thyme gift box is no exception and Lacy Lou Designs has include one final touch to make it even more special. After all, the only thing better than unwrapping one gift is unwrapping two gifts. Tucked carefully inside each purse is a pair of button stud earrings, made of matching pinstripe fabric with a clasp backing.
