Green Pactices: We are two websites with one product line and a shared shopping cart. Products are made from meticulously sourced organic, eco and/or recycled materials including recycled cotton, organic cotton, kapok, buckwheat, organic flax, 100% recycled wood non-toxic Medite 2 fiberboard, organic beeswax, pine resin, linseed wood finish. We buy domestically produced and local/regional as often as possible. We have eliminated all plastic from our packaging. This saves thousands of plastic bags from ending up in landfills every year. It only took us 15 years to realize we could send product unwrapped in the cardboard box. Some products are wrapped in celulose bags. We print only a one page brochure on 100% recycled paper with soy ink. We recycle all office paper and bottles. Our fabric scraps are donated to a local charity which makes them into blankets for the homeless. We employ LEAN manufacturing techniques which makes our operation super efficient and competitive even in the Global Economy. We are constantly working on reducing our energy needs. *Made in America We employ people in a rural Appalacian region which prevents extra driving and helps the local economy. Directions to our place. We are located an hour north of Asheville, North Carolina. We have a small showroom and welcome visitors. Please call first. 828-675-0490. Directions from Asheville (one hour driving time): Take HWY. 19/23 North toward Mars Hill. Take the next exit after the Mars Hill exit (about 3 miles on the right). There is a stop light there. Follow this road (19E) about 18 miles to Burnsville and then four miles past Burnsville. Take the Micaville exit on the right and then another right at the stop sign. (There are actually two exits which go to the same HWY 80 S. If you somehow take the second exit because you don't see the first--about 1/4 mile further--you will turn left onto HWY 80 S. instead of right). Follow this road (HWY 80 South) about nine miles. Carolina Morning Designs is on the right 100 yards after the Hamrick sign and immediately before the Amoco station on the left. You can also take the Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville. Click here for Mapquest. It takes an extra 15 minutes, but it's well worth it. Just be careful if there is rain or fog likely. Follow the Parkway North past Craggy Gardens and Mount Mitchell State Park. Get off on the Highway 80 exit. (Turn right off the Parkway then left at the stop sign). You will be heading down toward Burnsville and Busick. Go about five miles until you pass Carolina Hemlocks Campground, then a bridge, then an Amoco station on the right. Carolina Morning Designs is the next building on the left after Amoco. Look for the sign.
