- Kneeling Pad: This dense 2cm-thick rubber kneeling pad will take discomfort out of working at ground level. Measuring 40cm x 16cm it has been given a makeover with Homegrown and Handmade's hand-sewn, easy-to-remove slipcover with simple slide-in entry overlap. Made from robust fabric on the top and a waterproof vinyl on the underside, the slipcover can even be hand washed to keep clean. Both the inner pad and slipcover are included.
- Gloves: A 20cm long (3/4 forearm) sturdy cuff has been hand-sewn to hardwearing quality leather gloves to provide protection from scratches, stings and sunburn. The gloves continue to look stylish even once scuffed and soiled although they can be cold water washed and line dried for rejuvenating. The leather absorbs perspiration and the gloves shape to the user's hand over time.
- Sizing: One size fits average man's hands.
Homegrown and Handmade gourmet and textile gifts are all individually handmade to order by the owner/designer, Kallista Bolton, from her olive farm in southern Western Australia. Kallista makes beautiful, useful and wholesome items for heartfelt gifting. All pieces are carefully made in the quiet cottage studio or nearby commercial kitchen. The small crop of olive oil grows sustainably using biodynamic principles, and the textiles reflect a belief that even everyday items made with a beautiful aesthetic can enrich your home and daily experiences. Kallista opted out of a hectic career in Sydney in search of a simple life in the country. Along with her husband and their three children, the family found their slice of heaven in the shape of a 10 acre olive farm in country Western Australia. The Homegrown and Handmade venture evolved in early 2010 from Kallista's desire, as a parent, to work from home. Fusing her accumulated skills from university business study, with cooking and sewing skills learned from her mother and real work place regional marketing experience, plus a bit of resourcefulness, Kallista has created an enterprise that fits snugly alongside motherhood.
