About the materials in this kit:
Dried lavender buds: Our premium dried french lavender is organically grown and 100% natural and pure with no fillers, oils, dyes or additives added. It has been professionally dried, cleaned and sifted to remove any extra stems and debris. It is highly fragrant and the fragrance should last for several years.
Red cedar shavings: Our red cedar shavings are 100% natural USA grown and wild harvested. They are sourced from the Pennsylvania Amish community and are a byproduct of furniture making. They are highly fragrant.
Vintage quilt fabric: The fabric in these kits are cut from vintage handmade cutter quilts which show varying levels of wear and age such as staining, areas of thinning and loose stitching. Due to the handmade nature of the original quilts, variations in construction, thickness and fabrics used should be expected. Our materials have been carefully chosen using the best portions of each quilt, however the fabric should still be treated with care due to their age. Many quilts feature hand-stitching and due to their age these stitches may need to be reinforced by you.
