Earth Cadets: Organic & Recycled Totes & Pillows

I came across designer Krissy Callahan's line of screen printed pillows, totes, and t-shirts by utter happenstance over the weekend. I was initially drawn in by the colorful prints and then I was completely won over by her organic and recycled materials…

First of all, those screen prints! What is not to love? Telephones, owls, paper airplanes — Krissy's prints are whimsical and colorful and the lady has a way of creating a gorgeous pattern with them. Besides printing a stylish product, Krissy is focused on keeping her creations sustainable and organic. In addition to printing the tote bags herself, Krissy also hand sews them using fabric that is a blend of 80% Ecotec, a blended cotton yarn produced from the excess fabric of newly made clothing, and 20% Bottle Bag material made from 100% recycled soda bottles.

Check out Krissy's website and the Earth Cadets etsy shop for more of her beautiful designs.
