Spongetta is all about happy accidents and our packing is no different. There has never been a marketing plan. At all. A friend created the logo and we have slowly incorporated it into everything we do. Most recently we bought stickers from Moo.com because everyone loves stickers.
When packaging, safety of the item dictated our materials. Many of the handles on the purses needed an extra amount of padding beyond the bubble envelope, so we began wrapping them in scrap fabric. This has morphed into a version of furoshiki, the Japanese art of fabric wrapping. We want it to be as pretty and safe as possible.
We have also learned to include directions of a sort with each order. This includes how to care for the fabrics, the limitations of the items and storage tips.
We want all of our customers to love what we make!
Here are some tips to keep your stockings looking like new for many years to come.
- Lightly stuff with clean plastic bags to give the stockings a full shape to hang as a decoration before Christmas.
- On Christmas Eve, place the stocking on a chair for Santa to fill. Only lightweight items should be put in the stocking while hanging.
- Store wrapped in tissue away from moisture and moths.
- Spot clean as necessary.
- Have a very Merry Christmas!
