Etsy Love: Habitat Textiles

G'day mates!!! This morning over brekkie, I discovered quite a bottler! Ok, that's enough Aussie speak to embarrass myself with for one morning, but is a great segue into today's featured Etsy Shop: Habitat Textiles, one of the most drool-worthy offerings of eco-friendly and ethically-produced textiles I've ever seen. Habitat Textiles features mostly independent Australian designers (hence my poor attempt at some Aussie slang) and their brilliant ranges of hand-printed fabrics, as well as a small selection of WOOLganic knitting yarn in luscious colors and a line of organic cotton prints by Monaluna, their only northern hemisphere offering. While I'd rather grab my passport and shop Australia's textiles myself, Habitat Textiles sure is the next best thing. Oi!
