Silk-Screened Bird Patch

Andy Eats Only Candy (also known as Finnish student, designer and textile maker Niina Katinka) is an incredibly Earth-friendly little outfit that specializes in silk-screening, one-inch buttons, and various clothing and purses. With a focus on squirrels, rabbits and birds, the designs are cute and a tad whimsical, without being too precious. All of the silk-screening is done with environmentally-friendly, water-based ink, and whenever possible, items are shipped with recycled or recyclable packing materials.

The patch I received is quite large, which is perhaps the only real drawback from my perspective. It wouldn’t easily fit on the back of a sweatshirt or jacket (my favorite place to adhere patches), but it would fit on a large messenger bag.

Andy Eats Only Candy has perfect feedback ratings, and refunds are also allowed, which says a lot about a designer’s commitment to her work and to your satisfaction. Hosted online in an Etsy storefront, the selection can be a bit limited, but custom orders are available and the merchandise rotates frequently.

Supporting a student and fledgling designer with a pleasant selection of green products makes this an easy call. If you’ve got some extra cash and need a new tote, check her out.
