A lot of people actually don’t realize that we really make a lot of things here ourselves.
Most might be aware of this for the handmade paper goods but fewer people know that we also make our ironware ourselves.
Lonnie and I design the new products in collaboration with Jan. Jan is our creative smith in our own workshop, which is housed in one of the wings here at Jeanne d’Arc Living.
Then the items are handcrafted in our forging shop 50 yards down the street. It doesn’t get more local than that.
One of the new items right now is this dog bed. We all love it out here at JDL.
Our own “company dogs”, Donna the Labrador and the small English cocker spaniel Miss Smilla, immediately claimed the sample, which now sits here in the office. /Vivian
