What is a play garland? First things first, it doesn't go on your holiday tree! Play garlands are like lovely stretchy crowns that sit around the crown of your head, with ribbons dangling off the back. Kind of like what you see women wearing at Medieval festivals. In a drier form: garlands are beautifully dyed, silk-covered stretchy elastic and can fit all ages.
Pair them with a playsilk and they can make head dresses, skirts, pants, and more. Wear alone on the head or waist. Garlands are finished with a satin rose and 4 flowing ribbons and come in 3 vibrant colors or rainbow with matching ribbons.
An imaginative play staple! Hand-dyed playsilks are really one of our "best" toys! Playsilks let parents and kids use their imaginations to "create"... changing what they imagine the playsilk to be from day to day! Used for kids playing dress-up and creating their own adventures. Most popular Waldorf toys, used in preschools, kindergartens and homes all over the world. Playsilks come in a wonderful variety of colors, sizes, and styles. Let the magic of creative play begin!
The 20" of elastic garland easily stretches to fit all ages.

Silk is natural, renewable, and eco-friendly, as is the wood, wool, and cotton used in their toys. Pretend play is the foundation for a creative, inspired life and they hope their toys will be a part of your children’s memories.
Silk is an ancient product of China. Sarah’s Silks are woven, dyed, and hand-hemmed in a small village near Suzhou, a beautiful city long renowned for its silk culture. Sarah and Mike Lee enjoy this rich connection to exotic China and their family’s ancestral heritage.
Sarah’s Silks hires Chinese seamstresses who work in their homes, often sitting in doorways, as their children play nearby. Sarah’s Silks offers the seamstresses incentives beyond prevailing wages as well as access to supplemental health insurance as part of their efforts to support the healthy families of their partners across the world.
The hand-hemmed and dyed products travel by ship to Sonoma County, California. Here, women work in their homes to finish sewing, ironing and packaging Sarah’s Silks products.
Sarah and Mike Lee manage Sarah’s Silks from their Sonoma County home, where they continue to raise three boys in the Waldorf tradition. All three of their sons work in the family business by introducing and making string games and scrap bags.
