ST. HELENA, Calif., May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Woodfiberclay.com, a family-owned online homewares store, announced the launch of its website. A first of its kind located in Napa Valley, owners Lisa Toller and Kelley Burnett created the company to showcase handcrafted items by independent makers, vintage finds, and sustainable, fair-trade goods made of natural materials.
"Our aim is to encourage people to express their personal style in their living spaces by mixing natural materials and textures from different eras and different parts of the globe," said Toller. "We carry ceramics made in California by Amanda Wright and A Question of Eagles, as well as woven baskets from Africa, textiles from Fog Linen in Japan and Auntie Oti in India, walnut trays handmade in Pennsylvania, and sheepskins from Black Sheep (White Light) in Canada."
Added to the mix are vintage finds that the pair source from their travels. Burnett has an eye for midcentury, Danish and California vintage, while Toller collects rugs from the Southwest and artifacts from the Rocky Mountains.
"We include vintage items in the mix for the story each piece tells," said Burnett. "And vintage is a great way to re-use and re-purpose. Selling items that last, patina, and wear well with time are an important part of reducing our footprint on the planet."
A maker in her own right, Burnett is an accomplished illustrator and ceramicist whose work is sold nationally and internationally. She will be creating a line of art and pottery that will be sold exclusively at woodfiberclay.com.
In addition to the online store, Wood Fiber Clay is planning pop-ups in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first one will be held at Velo Vino in St. Helena on Saturday, July 16th, from 11 am to 4 pm. Wood Fiber Clay is currently constructing a by-appointment-only studio in St. Helena with completion slated for the Fall.
