Jul designs leather cuffs & shawl pins
I have long admired Jul designs shawl pins and when they brought out a line of leather cuffs - that was it, I had to start stocking their wares.
The items are made in Indonesia and the US. Laura, the owner of Jul makes the leather cuffs in the US and she works with talented craft people in Indonesia to make the pins. The work in collaboration and the maker dictate the price - she doesn't haggle with them to reduce their labour costs.
The leather cuffs are very versatile. They do a great job of keeping your shawl on or squishing down a big snuggly cowl.
The shawl pins are perfect for holding shawls in place. If you have a laceweight shawl, the twig stick is nice and light and won't drag down your shawl. The sheep and organic sticks are a little heavier and better suited to shawls that are crocheted/knitted in something heavier than a laceweight yarn.
Pedestal buttons - 3.8cm in diameter and 1.5cm deep (when fully screwed closed).

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating
These cuffs, pins and sticks are manufactured in America and Indonesia and therefore have a PoM rating.
Postage and Packaging
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with potentially inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
