After months of almost bursting with excitement and trying to keep this delicious secret to ourselves, the cat’s finally out of the bag – Wind & Willow Home is expanding our line to include wooden plates! I can’t tell you how many requests I’ve gotten for these over the past couple of years and now they’re finally, finally, finally in the works! These marbled wooden plates are designed and crafted with the same spirit as everything else we do at Wind & Willow home: a perfect mix of beauty, nature, modern sensibility, and functionality.

Made of solid and long-lasting hardwood, each plate comes in your choice of neutrals or neons to match your preferred taste and style. Each plate is also completely unique and hand-made, ensuring that no two are alike. The plates will be marbled with water-based ink and a coat of food-safe finish will be applied, ensuring that these are durable enough to handle day-to-day wear. The marbling pattern will cover the entire plate, including the bottom and sides, lending a graceful fluidity to each plate. You’ll also have your choice of sizes:


6” plate:

These little guys are small, but mighty. They would make the perfect accompaniment to whatever sweet dessert you’re serving (as the saying goes: TREAT YO SELF). And if you’re not the dessert type, these would look absolutely darling as a ring dish or a place to store your treasures. They’re all-purpose and ready to please!

10” plate:

Deceivingly refined, these plates are the workhorses of the bunch. If you’re hosting a fancy dinner party, these will instantly liven up your table, but they’re equally at home serving up some homemade sandwiches and salads. They’re never out of place and will always add that special and memorable touch.


Of course, there’s one catch, though: we need YOU to help us make this line come to fruition! We’ve partnered with the wonderful folks over at Etsy for this new initiative and have started our fundraising efforts (ch-ch-ch-check it out!). However, unless we hit our goal, we won’t be able to make this line of wooden plates happen. We’re well on our way, but if this is something you want to be a part of (and we hope you do!), we’d love your help – every little bit counts! In exchange for your support, you’ll be contributing to the growth of your local maker community, supporting sustainably made USA products, and, oh yeah, you get some pretty gorgeous wooden plates, too! So spread the good word – tell your loved ones, friends, family, co-workers, yoga instructor, plumber, bartender, barista, librarian, dog walker (you get the picture). Your support means the absolute world to us!
