This natural, unfinished maple wood and cotton teether is a safe alternative to other plastic and gel-filled teethers on the market. No recalls here! Unlike plastic, wood is naturally anti-microbial making this not only a more beautiful toy, but a cleaner one, too!
The wooden pieces are sanded before being hand-strung on organic hemp cord to give baby a silky-smooth surface on which to cut those new teeth! The cotton crochet beads provide textural interest for baby.
And yes, just like other teethers, this can be chilled in the freezer to provide extra relief!
To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth and allow to air dry before use.
As with all toys, please supervise baby while this toy is in use.
This has all become a heavier responsibility now that Bow and Maro is a living and breathing business. I want to be sure that what I offer in my online store reflects my values as an individual. I want you to know that you're purchasing a well-made item that has left a positive footprint in both society and on Planet Earth. If you wanted, you could compost anything you purchase from me.
Yes, its the status quo. And having built this site, I completely understand why its the current best practice. We makers want to be left to make - especially for other makers. Makers understand good things take time! Craft has a process! Makers need to be left to do what they do best!
But, maybe there's a better way?
I've been working with a (very understanding!) developer to build custom code that will allow my fellow quilters to get an instant quote, pay, and get mailing instructions for long arm quilting services. Yes, so part of the standard frustration we all face will no longer be necessary.
