BIRCHseed Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for participating and making it so exciting! 

After 367 entries we now have two winners:
The large bag goes to No. 200 Jennifer!
And the small bag is for No. 39 Meeling!
Congratulations, ladies!

Today I am proud to introduce Nikki Shipard, the slow living, sustainable and earth-friendly designer, creating one-of-a-kind eco and organic handmade products through the artful process of block printing which produces one of a kind, unique prints that match perfectly with the organic and wholesome nature of her end products.


If you are attracted by eco-friendly handmade products, I am sure that somewhere on the Internet you have caught a glimpse of the apple that has become a symbol of BIRCHseed - the Australian-based workshop where Nikki does her organic magic. 

I've been in love with all BIRCHseed designs for months now! The charming naive figures that Nikki block-prints by hand exude the warmth and attractive imperfection that only hand-made has to offer. As she says in her stylish blog, the inks that she uses are 100% solvent free, water-based and non-toxic, i.e. friendly towards the environment and our health, and gentle enough for even babies to wear. Nikki also makes sure to seek Australian-made materials or suppliers for the textiles and printing materials she uses.


Today, Nikki has not one, but TWO awesome prizes for TWO eco-minded Kanelstrand readers!


Yes! Two of you have the chance to win the Rolls Royce of organic cotton bags - reusable, sustainable and eco-friendly - the greenest and most unique shopping bags of them all!



The large bag measures approximately 17 inches (43 cm) wide, 12,60 inches (32 cm) high and 4,33 inches (11 cm) deep - a great size for a grocery shop or a beach bag or just an every day kind of bag.


The small bag measures approximately 11,40 inches (29 cm) wide and 12,20 inches (31 cm) high at the top and 9,9 inches (25 cm) wide at the bottom - a great size for a quick shop, a couple of bottles of wine or even as a kid's library bag.
