sponsor give away: Silk Oak

Are you feeling festive? It's time for the second give-away of the week! I really love have some of my local peeps as sponsors, and today's give-away is from none other than Ithaca's celebrated silk screen company: Silk Oak! Owner, Jan, believes in "growing a business that nurtures our families and strengthens our community, while working every day to show respect and concern for the earth".
 Here's a little bit about their process:
"We hand silkscreen our original designs on a variety of media, primarily organic cotton clothing, with a focus on made in the U.S., sweatshop free. We love color, cool design and the hands on feel of our traditional, low tech process. For each color in a design, a separate screen is used, registered by eye and printed by hand, so that each garment is slightly different from all the others. We use water soluble, environmentally friendly dyes that form a permanent bond with the fabric. Our process is safe for us and safe for the consumer, resulting in a garment with a soft feel, vibrant color and easy washability."- Silk Oak

Jan enjoyed offering a family set  for her last giveaway so much that she's doing it again! Featuring another of my favorite images, the mischievous raven, Silk Oak is generously offering one lucky winner the following:
-parent hoodie #1 (the fitted pullover version)
-parent hoodie #2 (the roomier zip version)
-baby onsie
-child longsleeve T
big silk oak giveaway!
 That's one of each pictured above... not kidding! The winner picks the sizes and gets to outfit a bunch of happy folks. How fun is that!? Please leave a comment between now and Friday at 9 pm EST. I'll announce the random winner on Saturday morning. And please do give Silk Oak a visit. I believe you'll find some fantastic last minute gifts for everyone on your list. Good luck everyone!

  19. I bought a gorgeous Silk Oak scarf for my sister-in-law for Christmas. I was both very happy thinking of her receiving it, and just a teeny bit sad that it wouldn't be warming my own neck. Raven wear for my whole family would be absolutely dreamy!
