Green Initiative

Our company has adopted the practices of recycling by implementing a business plan for our products and services that are less harmful to the environment through energy reduction and transportation efficiency. Our plan includes recycling in the use of materials; such as fabrics, fiber and wood products for our craft kits, handcrafts and artwork. We also recycle boxes, packing materials and shipping products. We make crafting products and kit items by hand using tools that do not require custom production or material.

Historical Crafting Kits

We offer packaging in four historic periods and can help with suggested kits for each. I have listed suggestions below. However, the packaging is interchangeable. We can also design custom packaging using your logo.
