Bad news: you should only eat oysters during months whose name contains the letter “r.” Good news: you can use oysters anytime to hold your stitch markers!
Meet our Batik Oyster Shell Dish Collection, hand-crafted dishes that serve two purposes: 1) to hold your stitch markers in style and 2) become a conversation starter for the good of our planet.
Handmade in South Carolina from oyster shells washed up on the shorelines of Isle of Palms, each decoupaged shell features a 100% cotton batik fabric lining with subtle floral designs. The medium-sized shells measure approximately 3.5" x 1.5" and because of the organic nature of the shells, no two dishes are the same.
Did you know that oysters play a vital role in the protection and restoration of our coastal shorelines? They naturally create reefs or barriers along coastlines, filter water, provide habitats for other marine life, and minimize the impact of flooding. In this blog post, learn more about the awesome benefits of oysters and how restoration projects through oyster shell recycling programs are looking to revitalize coastlines.
Our Batik Oyster Shell Dishes also give back: we donate 10% of every Batik Oyster Shell Dish sale to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL), which is doing important work to construct oyster reefs and restore oyster fisheries. Find more ways you can help and other organizations doing this important work in this blog.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: spot clean with a cloth dampened with water and air dry. Do not use chemical cleaners.
