Moth Written - Featured Etsyian

For those of you who know me and know me well, you know that I am a hopeless romantic. Also, I'm what you'd call crafty - not in that Beastie Boys way; more in the Martha way. As well, I am a relentless activist. One day, while cruising Renegade Handmade's Artist list, I found Moth Written's adorable and compelling banner. I had to learn more, and I am SO glad that I did.

Moth Written is the lovechild of Mary E. Robbins and Nabil Sibouih. At Moth Written, you will find simple, sweet, and yes! sometimes political graphics printed on t-shirts, bags, pins and the like. What makes Moth Written different from any other graphic/print shop I've yet seen, is that accompanying these wonderfully appealing graphics are the Arabic words for each image.

So take a peek into their craftivistic shop, and learn Arabic one word at a time! Don your favorite shirt or bag and, to quote Mary and Nabil, "create positive dialogue about the Arabic-speaking world".
