Looking for a locally made, eco-friendly, and socially-conscious item to gift this Mother’s Day?

Episcopal Community Services of Maryland’s Mother Made Baltimore program and Ten Thousand Villages are pleased to announce a Mother’s Day Trunk Show and Sale. This event will be held on May 5, 2012 from 12pm-4pm at the Ten Thousand Villages store, 1621 Thames Street, Baltimore, MD 21231.

Mother Made is a local program that helps low-earning women use their crafting skills to generate income. They have teamed up with Ten Thousand Villages, a fair-trade retailer located in Fells Point, promotes buying relationships with skilled artisans who are under- or unemployed.

Mother Made will showcase signature produce bags, shopping bags, and hand-dyed napkins and scarves. Products are available for a range of prices from $5 – $50.

Mother Made’s re-usable produce bags are made of unbleached cotton fabric. The simple design has a drawstring and is printed with Mother Made’s logo. Each “market pack” includes 3 sizes- small (9×12), medium (11×14), and large (14×18 inches).

Mother Made’s resist-dyed Shibori napkins come in a variety of bright and fresh colors, speckled with repeated patterns that are designed and created by women in Baltimore. The napkins (17×17”, rayon/linen blend) come in sets of 4.

Mother Made’s oilcloth totes are durable and perfect for summer trips to the beach or the Farmers’ Market. They are ornamented with vibrant and fun patterns. The totes are 20x17x7inches, with two 17″ straps that will sling comfortably over your shoulder.
