  • Organic Lavender Sachets


    Little else smells as clean and fresh as lavender does. Toss a couple of sachets in a bureau or closet, or tuck them away with out-of-season clothing, and your duds will always be ready to wear. We are especially keen on this nautical set, hand embroidered and full of French lavender.
