Aquatic Plants

aquatic plants

Aquarium plants are perfect to ensure your pet fish feel right at home, plus they can help absorb harmful toxins in your aquarium water, acting as natural filtration.

There are a bunch of different types of aquatic plants at #TomsThumbNursery, like Echinodorus Dekumbens.

Solmate Socks

Let’s leave the Earth better than we found it.

Manufacturing clothes can be a dirty business. So we use recycled materials – salvaged scraps that would otherwise end up in landfills – without added dyes or chemicals.

Because when what you make will last long into the future, you first make sure there is a future.

  • Cotton is sourced from fabric waste all over the world.
  • Waste is comprised of production scraps and used clothing.
  • Materials are cut into small pieces and shredded.
  • Fibers are respun into new yarns for our comfy socks.
  • Socks are knit at our own mill in Hickory, North Carolina.

By using recycled yarns, every sock we produce saves:

  • 2.76 kilowatt hours of energy
  • 0.06 pounds of pollutants
  • 1.12 pounds of CO2 emissions
  • 161.75 gallons of water
  • 1.32 square feet of landfills
  • 0.73 water bottles

It’s our hands-on, creative bent that gives our socks life. We use thick yarn and bold patterns, the kind of thing that gives mass production a migraine.

Which is why we own our own mill, right here in the US.

Marimo Balls

What is that green ball of fluff? It’s a Marimo Moss Ball 💚 Not actually a moss, marimo balls are rare spherical-shaped, noninvasive algae with a velvet-like appearance and are often referred to as “pets” in Japan!

Because they are low maintenance, they are perfect for any first-time “pet”/plant owner. Keep them in low to medium indirect light, and change the water once every two weeks. If algae begin to grow on the tank’s surface, just clean it with a brush.

Find them by the ball itself, or in special containers like this at Tom’s Thumb Nursery!

Ata Rattan Purses/Bags

Ata bag

We love these handwoven Rattan bags.

These beautiful Ata bags are hand crafted by master weavers, and lined with colorful batik linen. The exterior is dried under the sun for days then hung over a fire. This gives them their golden color & cures them so they last for years.
