Beautiful & Diverse collection of artisan crafted 100% wool felt accessories & home products made & sourced locally in NY State, USA. The beauty of wool is not just for scarves & sweaters!
Remember making these when you were a kid? I sure do, my mom still uses them! These 100% cotton 8-inch potholders are larger than the traditional loom of my childhood. I use 100% thick made in USA cotton loops for weaving. And 'YES' they are washable!
Individually made in USA with hand loom.
As the eternal optimist, always looking to the future, and the future of my son I wanted to find a way to start an at home business. I had a desire to bring my knowledge and experience in the fashion industry to a more local level. I knew there had to be a way to bring my creativity, love of beautiful natural fabrics, and desire to leave a smaller carbon footprint on this earth into a business I could call my own. I spent many a night knitting, sewing, and weaving creating things that would be useful, charming, and good for the planet. Midnight Mercantile was born.
With help from my dear friend, Gail, and some experimentation, I began making 100% wool felt sheets for my bags, wreaths and coozies - giving new purpose to cast-off wool fiber that a local yarn mill was unable to process into yarn.
I source my core materials locally with businesses who pay fair wages to their employees. All of my fabrics are natural fibers.
Thank you for your support.
