Did you know that all whales have unique tail flukes, that can be used to identify them like a fingerprint? So too do these Baby 'Blue'ga whales, handmade with LOVE!! These are the details that are diminished when we forego handmade options for mass produced items bereft of a creator's touch. When generating stuff on earth, it is important to ask "WHAT WOULD NATURE DO?" Needless to say, no two of these babies is alike.
One waste product of making clothing is scrap fabric. The exterior of these "Leave No Trace" stuffed animals are made of 100% hemp: grown organically, dyed with indigo and other herbal dyes, embroidered with natural fibers, and sewn with recycled plastic bottle thread, while the interior is stuffed with scrap fabric- including everything from serger clippings to spent yarn. They are an adorable small solution to the many issues of waste and toxicity swirling around our children, oceans, and planet at large.
I custom make these items with accent colors on the belly and unique embroidery on each one. Each whale is unique due to the nature of natural dyeing and making by hand.
