Quiet Cricket Studio founder Hannah Armstrong was raised in southern Louisiana, where she reveled in the outdoors. She traveled the western United States, working on a variety of permaculture and holistic farms. This inspired a deeper study into plants, and the ways in which people interact with them. Working with botanists, farmers, and makers of all sorts has given her a diverse base from which to grow her own practice.
Working with her hands has always been important, just as creating and playing have been. Combining her passions, the objects she’s created within Quiet Cricket Studio are all natural, responsibly sourced, and handcrafted.
Responsible Sourcing & Sustainable Ingredients
Sustainability is key in our work. Many of our products are in direct response to the harsh synthetic chemicals found in everyday products. From petroleum based candles with lead wicks that release carcinogenic fumes, to aerosol canisters for dry shampoo that contribute to greenhouse gasses, we have to do better. It’s so simple. Simple ingredients. Natural. Quality.
We work hard to source the highest quality ingredients that have to travel the least distance to our studio. The soy wax used in our candles is grown in the Midwest. The jars are manufactured in Pennsylvania. Our shipping materials are frequently reclaimed, and always made with post-consumer paper.
Sourcing the best ingredients is a process that doesn’t stop, and we are constantly striving to do better. As we learn, we grow.
