Natural Twig Colouring Pencils
Colour makes people happy! Pencils have had a pretty update with these cute printed drawstring bags.
These Natural Twig Colouring Pencils are crafted from the natural tree branches of the Tamarind tree. The trees are farmed for their fruit in Asia and after the fruit is harvested, the branches are cut and left to dry in the sun. They are then drilled and the pencil colour is inserted.
✿ Set of 10 coloured pencils in printed bag
✿ Fair-trade, organic cotton
✿ 14cm long
✿ Natural bark makes them easy to grip
Not suitable for children under 3 years due to bark shedding.
Push Design Store creates beautiful illustrated clothing, accessories, décor and toys. For adventurous children and fun grown ups. Produced in house and in collaboration with small and local makers, in the UK.
When choosing other businesses to collaborate on projects with, I had to evaluate my own skill set and write down what it was I enjoyed doing the most. Illustration is overwhelmingly my favourite thing to do. Whether I’m making ceramics or embroidery, I enjoy hand painting and drawing designs the most. I’ve always wanted to turn my illustrations into children’s accessories and clothing, so I knew I was looking for locals with skills in these areas. It helps to have a completely different skill set to your collaborator, to avoid a conflict of interest. Sustainability is a key priority, from choosing fabric suppliers with organic, OEKO-TEX options to makers with a ‘waste not’ approach. I tend not to work with makers who don’t hold the same environmentally friendly values.
I managed to rope in an old friend, who makes beautiful baby clothes, to produce some garments for me. First printing fabric for the garments at a Kent based fabric printers, using sustainable and organic cottons. My first collaborative project had begun, providing three small local businesses with a part to play in the manufacture of a lovingly made product.
