It's Cooler in the Shade!

Beneath the Rowan Tree is our little family venture. It grew out of the need to find clothing for my daughter (now 28 months) that was fun, bright, natural and non-commercial. Since we live in an area where our only options for children's items are Wal-Mart or a *very* upscale (read: $$$) boutique, I started dyeing and painting cotton clothing for her (Rowan) and the rest is history, as they say!

Our core product is still our hand dyed and hand painted clothing in sizes 6m - 6t, along with our playsilks. We have also branched out into other natural toys, including Square Roots (tm), wooden vehicles (natural or personalized and painted), upcycled wool finger puppets, crayons... Whatever catches our fancy. My husband Andy does the woodwork, I do the painting and dyeing. Rowan does the inspiring!

We are committed to supporting and encouraging families to nurture their child's imagination, wonder and creativity in these crucial early years.

Andy and I (Lori) both work full time, so we are always working on achieving balance between work/ home and art. We welcome customs as time and energy allow (including a wider range of sizes and adult wear) and really enjoy collaborating with other artists and crafters.

We have been on Etsy since May 2007. We also sell on Hyena Cart in our own shop and a couple of congos. All of our information, including the link to my blog, our gallery and product info can be found on our new website: http://beneaththerowantree.com
