I have a confession to make: Up until a week ago, I had never bought anything from Etsy.
Don't get me wrong; I love Etsy! I browse through Etsy quite a bit. But I'm on a tight budget. Matt and I try to limit our fun spending to $70 each per month. So I usually browse Etsy and then get inspired to make my own stuff (or at least attempt it).
But when I stumbled upon Kumi's corsages, I bought one right away. They are made from vintage kimonos (sometimes those that she has inherited from her family). She says:
I am committed to reducing the amount of waste in general and I am very careful when I produce my work. I am a strong believer of "art for everyone" hence the reasonable prices and the promotion of "handmade/crafted" products.For a mere $13, there's no way I could have produced such loveliness myself. The best part: Kumi is giving away one of her stunning creations to a 2000dollarwedding kindred spirit.
All you have to do is leave your first name and last initial in the comments section by Monday, March 9 by 11:59 EST. If your name is randomly selected, I'll follow-up to find out your mailing address and your corsage preference.
