Friday Finds! Featuring: Polinary Soup

Happy Friday!

I hope you’ve all had a beautiful week, and if you’re reading from the US, are ready for a relaxing and safe holiday weekend!



I myself am celebrating a week of working successfully, despite being down a digit due to an unfortunate mishap with a utility knife that ended in stitches.  I’ll spare you the photograph of my mangled finger and put a cute kitten here instead. You’re welcome.




This Friday’s find is one that I stumbled upon pretty recently, but I’m so in awe of her talent that I wanted to share it with everyone here!

Polinary Soup is owned by Jenn, and her talent for hand-dying really just blows me away!


Everyone remembers tie-dying.  Whether you were fortunate enough to have experienced the 70’s first hand, or you attended a birthday party or sleepover in the 90’s, chances are you’ve attempted it at least once.  And chances are, you ended up with something resembling a mud-covered t-shirt.

But this girl, has got. it. down.  She has not only mastered color theory, but she has a mesmerizing ability to tie fabric in a way that creates almost mandala-like prints and patterns.

Seriously. Look at this stuff!

One of the things that made me check out her shop in the first place was her tie-dyed baby items.  Which is funny, because I don’t have any children, or solid plans for acquiring any in the near future.

But rest assured, if and when I do take on the gigantic task of raising a tiny person, they will most definitely  be sporting a tie-dyed onesie while napping on their tie-dyed crib sheet.

forget a crib, I’m thinking about buying this thing to hang on the wall! LOOK. AT. IT!

She also creates t-shirts and scarves, that somehow mange to be simultaneously hippie-chic, and as elegant as an Indian batik hanging in an art gallery.

To top it all off, her beautiful pieces are ridiculously affordable.

So take some time on this fine Friday to go checkout Polinary Soup. I guarantee you’ll be as smitten with her skillful dye-work as I am!  And make sure to let me know in the comments about any artisans whose work you just adore!
