The Daisy: elSage's New Design

The new Daisy design was created after the most delightful visit to NorCal, for the matriarch of our family who loves a floral print. Life inspiring art is my favorite reason to create. Every elSage design is created from linocut block prints and then hand silk screened with organic, water-based ink in the back of the shop. Each piece is indie-made in Skagit Valley, Washington.   This mineral green kid's hoodie is the perfect piece for Fall!  Store all of your favorite goods in this canvas Daisy Tote Bag!  Shop small for new Daisy goods here.
