Sarah's Silks Give Away - Just in Time for this Season!


Sarah Jane's Treasures are simply beautiful toys created to inspire the imagination.  Toymaker, Sarah Lee, shares,


"One of our goals is to help the children of the world retain their sense of creativity. Open-ended play encourages children to be creative, and for both children and adults, a creative mind is an essential tool in life. Our children remind us all of the infinite possibilities of imaginative play."
All of Sarah Silk's products featured on Sarah Jane's website are made with natural materials and non-toxic dyes. There are no chemicals, dangerous coatings or heavy metals in paints to worry about. Many of her products are made right here in Sebastopol California.  (Products that are produced overseas ensure fair working conditions.) Sarah's Silks and company take pride in providing quality toys that are made well and with responsibility for a better planet.

Buy Sarah's Silks on-line or through local vendors such as Sebastopol's Earth Child.

Win Your Own Delightful Silk Gift! 


Sono-Ma readers can also enter to win a Sarah's Silks Play Canopy with the blue and green "Under the Sea" theme.   To enter, leave your comment before 12/22/09 at 4:00 pm answering this question:  Which Thoreau quote is centered on Sarah's Silks Babies and Toddlers page?  

The winner will be notified via email and will receive one, 100% silk gauze canopy and all parts needed for hanging. 


Sarah's Silks are a central feature in several of our family's rituals and special occasions.  Blossom's teacher, Grandma Mary Bowen, wrapped Bryles shoulders in one of Sarah's rainbow silks as part of a special birthday blessing.  She told Bryles the story of how he came down the rainbow bridge to the loving arms of his family, using his silk as a physical link to the more ethereal realm.  During his family birthday celebration, we again tied the cape on Bryles, who happily danced around the house in pure celebration of the magic of his birth.

One of Sarah's Silks blue baby blankets and a red play silk will be two of Bryles main gifts for Solstice this year.  I can't wait to see him wrap the Waldorf doll I made him in the precious blue banket... Or to see him build a play tent for his knit and wooden animals with his red silk.  These are truly lasting toys, with a natural feel that inspire children to great imaginary feats!

    "Every Child Begins the World Again." My kids LOVE Sarah's Silks - the play silks have created pirates, princesses, mermaids, gypsies, motorcycle riders and many more things out of my kids! I always try to make sure I have a few in the play area of my store, also, to see what other kids become!

    Every child begins the world again. What a beautiful quote.
    We have several Sarah's silks that get used for all kinds of things around hers. This canopy would be a real hit with my daughters. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.
