Love your body, Comfort your soul
We believe that a little bit of love goes a long way. We all live such busy lives that it’s nice to stop every now and then and take some time to nourish and look after your body. After all it does a lot of work right? We love wheatbags for the simple way they soothe away the aches and pains of everyday life. Their warmth is a great comfort on those cold winter nights too.
From Me to You
Wheatbags Love was founded in 2014 by Kim Stark. Back in the day when she was a remedial massage therapist she got a little frustrated by how ugly your standard wheatbag was. What was with all the corduroy in bad colours? Determined not to sell those in her clinic she started making her own. Then she started screen printing her own fabric and selling to other similarly minded clinics and gift stores… 6 years later her love of such a wonderful, helpful product that brings such joy to people hasn’t dimmed.
Kim and her wonderful team of girls work out of a studio in Northcote, Melbourne where everything is still made by hand using all natural and organic materials. We have a range of delicious scents like lavender, clove and rose which make using our wheatbags and eyepillows that little bit more special.
We think mother nature is the ultimate creative genius so we want to make sure we look after her. We use only natural and organic materials that are biodegradable. We source locally as much as we can and use recyclable packaging. We hate waste so we only cut shapes out of our fabric that will leave minimal waste. We even give the offcuts to a local refugee centre where migrant woman have been turning them into quilts! Plus most of our cardboard waste goes back into our compost bins at home. It’s the little things that can make a big difference.
