Seed Bombs in Brooklyn

East Coast Seed Bombs by VisuaLingual

Our East Coast seed bombs are now available at Catbird in Brooklyn, which specializes in jewelry and other small gifts. I feel like an old-timer for being able to point out that I attended junior high not far from this boutique’s location, way before you could buy anything like our work on Bedford Ave.

We make our seed bombs by hand in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, using a mix of bird-, bee- and butterfly-friendly wildflowers native to the East Coast. Five gumball-sized seed bombs are packed into each screenprinted muslin bag, ready for gift-giving.

The seed mixture includes Baby Blue Eyes, Baby’s Breath, Black Eye Susan, Blue Flax, California Poppy, Cornflower, Gloriosa Daisy, Lance-Leaf Coreopsis, Mexican Hat, None-so Pretty, Perennial Gaillardia, Perennial Lupine, Plains Coreopsis, Purple Coneflower, Red Poppy, Rose Mallow, Scarlet Flax, Shasta Daisy, Siberian Wallflower, Sulphur Cosmos, Sweet William, Wild Annual Sunflower, Wild Cosmos, and Wild Larkspur. These wildflowers were chosen because they’re native to the East Coast, but many are actually native to much of North America.

Since their introduction last Spring, our seed bombs have been featured in Vogue, House Beautiful, ReadyMade, Lonny Magazine, and Woman’s Day, among other publications.

Our East Coast seed bombs, and tons of other handmade goodies, are also available in the VisuaLingual online shop.
