Etsy star, TorillaGirl makes everything in her shop by natural daylight, in order to reduce her carbon footprint.  What else?  She uses only cruelty-free, local textiles sourced in France where she lives.  What else?  She makes lovely understated things, from linen tunics to knitted accessories – all with craft and care and attention to detail you can see in the finished products.  See more on her website or buy on Etsy.

nina fuehrer

I found Nina Fuehrer a few years ago at a small designer pop-up shop, where I bought one of her knitted fishes to give as a gift and never gave it away!  So I was happy to see that she’s still designing and that her talents have spread beyond accessories and into clothing.  You can place an order through her site – it’s all in German, but you’ll figure it out if you really want one of those gorgeous denim dresses or cute mohair pussycat bags!

Piper and Paisley make really cute hats and sell them on Etsy.  Choose from slouchy brim hats like the one pictured, or more structured, wool and heavy cotton in feminine, urban styles.  If you just can’t wait until new collections are on sale, follow them on Facebook for updates.
