I’ve never been to Inge’s workshop in the Netherlands, but if the world headquarters of Windward Made is not the coziest spot on the planet, I’d be surprised. Inge is the “designer, maker, and everything-elser” at the small online shop which she keeps stocked with hand-printed tea towels, pillow covers, tea and plant cozies, among other things. If you’re on the hunt for a simple and sweet gift to bring to someone’s home this winter—or a little treat for yourself—Winward Made is the place to look.
Inge screenprints her own designs onto hemp and organic cotton fabric using non-toxic inks and sews her goods on a vintage sewing machine with organic thread. This week, she’ll be prepping to mail off a package to a Reading My Tea Leaves reader.
One lucky reader will receive a brown paper parcel wrapped in string and tied up with a feather for good measure. Inside, the winner will find a pillow cover, tea towel set, and plant cozy of his or her choosing. ^^^A wintry pine green plant cozy for keeping plants warm—and hiding less-than-beautiful pots. (If you ask me, they’d make the perfect “tree skirt” for an apartment-sized Christmas tree.)
^^^Not for plants, only, the plant cozy makes a fabric bowl for stashing fruit or other odds and ends. It’s also fully reversible. The simple tea towels come in four different designs that are festive for the wintertime, without being kitschy. They’re sold individually and in sets of two and they’re made with a hang tag in the corner for easy drying. This one’s the pine tree towel.
^^^Inge’s organic cotton and hemp pillow covers come in five subtle graphic designs and are beautifully designed with an envelope closure. This one is the black stripes cover. Perfect for wintry snuggling.
The giveaway will close at 5:00 pm EST on Friday, November 21 and a randomly selected winner will be announced on Monday, November 24. Open to all readers. UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Mary, whose go-to gift is “a jar of something canned from the cupboard” is the winner.
This post and giveaway was sponsored by Windward Made. Opinions and enthusiasm are my own. Thanks so much for supporting the brands that keep Reading My Tea Leaves afloat.
