Spring is here! The time of year for new beginnings and growth there is no better way to celebrate the season than with an abundance of flowers.
With that in mind, we are super excited to announce our brand new floral collection! Nine brand new designs with all of your favourite flowers. Available in Men's and Women's sizes, this new collection features plantable hang tags; because what goes better with flowers than more flowers?
All of our other collections are tagged with 100% recyclable cardboard, but for the floral collection we decided to try something new and use compostable seeded paper. Simply cover the tag with moist soil and within 7-14 days you'll see your first little wildflower sprouts. They can be planted in a pot inside or you can save them for your summer garden!
