happy holidays.

shadow puppets by Owly Shadow Puppets

it's almost end of the year.
hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.

lots of things happend for me this year, and glad its over!

im thinking about doing wholesale next year.
it has been 3 years since i started PataPri, and had many offer for wholesale from many great shops all over the world, but i wasnt really sure how to go about it and dealing with etsy shop was hard enough for me, so i haven't done it.

ive been reading craft inc. and started to think about doing wholesale seriously.

lots to think...
i have a big passion for my patapri, and love making things i make, but im not really a business person, so thats what i need to figure it out next year.

one of the reason i want to do wholesale is that when i went to paris in summer,
when i was walking around the neighborhood of
Marais with my sister, i stooped by a cute little toy store.
i saw a shadow puppet by fellow chicago crafter andrea on their window display!

i was so excited to see her work at different country, far away from chicago.
and i thought, that would be amazing to see my towels in cute shops all over the world, that would be so cool!

that's the reason why i want to do wholesale, good reason right?

anyway, thats my goal for next year to do wholesale.
and go back to chicago and do renegade.

have a happy holidays!

more towels at etsy.
im in printing mode.
i can print only 6 towels at times due to my table size ( 12 for a small size towel ),
so i print first color , wait to dry, second color, wait to dry and logo.
it takes long hours to just print 6 towels... but oh well.

i have a new package for my hand towels.
im using paper instead of hemp strings which i use for kitchen towel.
paper looks great for small size towel, but for large size towel, paper looked not right, especially side part, so i fold the paper to make it like a box? and i really like the way it look. yay.
