It's more than just a small business!

What do you stand for? Fat cats raking in millions for mass produced, low quality items? Or do you stand up for the little guy? Are you a fan of the underdog that makes quality, handmade products?

I read a quote the other from an artist saying, when buying from a small business you are buying so much more than just their product "you're buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you're buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment in someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about."

This quote was so on point with how I feel about supporting artists and other small business like myself. When you purchase from us you are not only supporting a family, you are also supporting my passion for sewing. You are helping me provide a personal and unique service these big chain stores can not provide.

Each accessory I sew is carefully crafted from start to finish. Why is my shop different? Here are a few things you may not have know about us:

1. I carefully select all of our materials and hardware from other small businesses. I make sure all of our products are made from the highest quality materials.
2. A lot of my ribbon and fabric is purchased from other Etsy sellers or small shops.
3.The entire process of cutting, sewing, photography, and shipping are all done from my little house in Japan.
4. Many hours have gone into making top quality pet accessories. I am constantly experimenting with new products but most of them do not go up for sale in our shop. I believe you should master a few products as opposed to selling a large variety of mediocre products. As the old adage goes, quality over quantity!
