Featured Product of the Month: Black Lives Matter
Hello creative friends!
We are introducing a new concept in our blog content and product promotion. Every month we are going to feature a product, and with it, we are also going to support a social and/or environmental cause. In case you want to know more about our renewed commitment to a better future, read this blog post.
Breathe Live Explore is our newly unwind studio artist, and we can't wait to show you some more designs created by her! In the meantime, can you resist to these amazing illustrations?!
Oris Eddu is a self taught illustrator and surface pattern designer from Nigeria, currently living in Lagos, NG. Her focus is to create unique, bold and colorful illustrations and patterns for products that people need everyday, such as fabrics, stationery, home decor and paper goods.

The cause that we are supporting with this product needs no introduction. It might be by far the largest movement in the United States history! Unfortunately, it resonates everywhere else in the world.
As a white female small business owner, I've learnt that I too need to do my own work in order to be actively anti-racist. And it is true... until now, like most of us non-Black folks, I've never realized that "It's a privilege to educate ourselves about racism, instead of experiencing it!!!"
So I've decided to collaborate with Oris, and bring the "Black Lives Matter" design into needlepoint, and donate all the profits to a BLM related org.
It will be a limited edition of only 50 canvases or kits. There's also a downloadable PDF with the charted graph of the design available too, without any limit quantities. 100% of profits from all product variations will be donated.
You can find the other actions that I'm doing, to contribute to a fair world here.
All the love,
