Etsy shop Madder Root caught my eye this week as I embarked on my weekly search for handmade home accessories that are as stylish as they are eco-conscious. Fortunately, the pages of Etsy are overflowing with just such creations: housewares that beautify our homes while honoring Mother Earth. Sometimes choosing a favorite to feature on Saturdays is tough, but Maine-based Madder Root's simple yet delightful handprinted organic linen tea towels and cloth napkins simply jumped out at me. Their own company profile says it best:
Madder Root was born out of a passion for fabric, art, lively conversation, cups of tea and walks with the dog. We see creating and doing business in Maine as more than just a job. At Madder Root it's a lifestyle. We are inspired by our state's ocean, forest and mountain vistas and we strive to protect the environment around us with every business choice we make. From our material to our packaging we work hard to find environmentally friendly supplies without sacrificing quality.
