What products are in the crates?: A variety of beauty, home or edible products are styled into crate designs. I take care to send each crate as shown in the photograph you see. Some products may vary from the photograph provided in the rare occasion that stock availability changes and you will be notified.

What does natural mean?: There are various meanings. Clover Lane Crates selected artisans who have earth and health conscious qualities and each product carries one or more of them. Including but not limited to: packaging, organic or vegan ingredients, ingredients from ethically sourced materials and natural ingredients we can understand, fragrance free, natural or recycled fibres (such as cotton). Although not all products are completely green, I will continue to source products I believe help us to start making better choices for ourselves and loved ones.

Allergies: Clover Lane Crates has a vision to provide products with natural ingredients but that doesn't mean they are allergy free. For example, chocolates may have come into contact with nuts and beauty products may have ingredients such as essential oils that may irritate some. If you would like an ingredient list send me a message or, please find links to each artisans page to find direct details.                  Canadian Artisans
