One of the best things about owning Spiral Garden is knowing the talented artists who create our stock.
Abby and Michelle from Faraway Felt both live on a strata-title community in northern NSW. They live on solar power, tank water and have vegie gardens, orchards, chooks and other animals (ponies, cows, ducks).
Abby has 2 children (7 and 4) and Michelle has 3 (11, 9 and 3). Their kids go to the local Steiner school (Rainbow Ridge) which Abby is heavily involved in. Michelle is studying a Primary Teaching degree.
Faraway Felt use 100% Australian fine merino wool, mulberry silks, ribbons and recycled fabrics to create their range. Garden Flags are the first product from them we have on offer.
These are lovingly created hand-made felt flags. Merino wool is wet-felted into unique pieces of art to decorate your bedrooms, classroom, living area, the entrance to your home or seasonal table. In each set of flags, there are seven flags sewn onto dark green ribbon. The garden flags depict a pale blue sky with the fluffiest of gentle white clouds, rich green grass and plants with beautiful flowers. They are a high-quality heirloom item, these durable flags will last.
We have some garden flags hanging above the seasonal table in the entrance area of our home, and they have received many delighted comments.
