Supporting Independent Craft

Here in the Introvert, we believe in independent small businesses that promote the values of old: honesty, quality, and sustainability, creating community by supporting real connections between human beans 🫛.

About Wildlife Fen:

Inspired by the love for the Natural World and seasonal life.
Its founders have been studying and enjoying nature for most of their lives. This has evolved in many ways, from growing organic herbs, plants and produce to foraging wild edibles and healing plants.
 
Today, they create artwork using plants they grow or sustainably forage, weaving them into items to support your wellbeing and self-care practices and encourage a deeper connection with nature.

Today, on Wednesday, March 20th, at precisely 03:06 hours GMT, The Wheel of the Year had turned again!

Written in collaboration with Chrisy and Nic from Wild Fen
