Oooh! This week's featured shop is so much fun. A visit to Etsy shop rikrak stirs up a child-like candy shop feeling... so much color and light you simply want everything. And you want it now! These eco felt Christmas stockings are a very popular item, and it's no wonder why!
"Modern and sustainable patchwork" is the purpose and accomplishment of this charming shop. Kristal Davis, a Toronto-based textile genius and mother, has had a love for color since she can remember. She was featured in an Etsy "Quit Your Day Job" article in 2009:
"Kristal's business rikrak was born when she found out she was pregnant with her son. As her passion for making quilted baby play mats grew, her quilts began catching the eye of local boutiques and Etsians. Since joining Etsy, Kristal has made well over 1,500 sales, has sold through 90 boutiques around the world (after finding her shop through Etsy), and has been featured in five major print publications. Her success on Etsy has enabled her to stay at home with her son instead of going back to her previous teaching job. She hasn't looked back since!"
Thanks, rikrak! (all photos and designs are Copyright © 2005-2010 rikrak™)
