Fall Tree Greeting Card

Sale $8 $7

Trees whisper their secrets before autumn’s chill drives them to slumber. About 400 rural paper makers in the coastal town of Salay, Misamis Oriental, on the island of Mindanao, Philippines, work to create handmade paper from grasses, flowers and local tree-free products. Although the organization has paper down to a science, many factors affect colour or dyeing, including season, climate, process (air or steam drying), and even the strength of the wind. One of the amazing joys of handmade products.
