Based in Seattle, Of The Earth is an environmentally conscious paper manufacturer that was launched after its founders decided to make their wedding invitations from scratch. Plant petal-strewn seeded flower sheets ($10 per 18"x24" sheet) to sprout a mix of 15 wildflower species and give a second life to a pile of returned Mindy Cohn fan letters. Or, for an additional fee, Of The Earth can custom-tear these sheets into small pieces suitable for bi-fold cards, flat invitations, or hand-lettered ransom notes ($1/card).
Handmade from Daphne-bush bark by rural craftspeople in Nepal, supple Lotka paper can also be transformed into a variety of stationery. DIY invitation kits come with 29 yards of compostable Eco-Twist ribbon to tie cards shut once they’re printed with party-invite details ($75.54 per 25 invitations), and computer-safe 8.5"x11" Lotka paper adds an eco-friendly edge to dream diaries and comes in non-seeded ($9.99 per 25 sheets), vegetable-dyed ($14.99–$16.99), or seeded ($11.49 per 25 sheets).
