Thank you for shopping at Archipelago. Many of the items sold at Archipelago are one of a kind items and hand-made by a Maine artisan. Some of the pictures are not a picture of the actual item you will be receiving but an item very similar to it. Variations in color and sometimes in pattern are to be expected when purchasing items made by hand. If you would like more information about the item before purchasing, you’re welcome to call the store and speak with a customer service associate at 207-596-0701. Thank you very much for your support of Maine artists and Archipelago, the Island Institute Store. And remember, we're all Made in Maine!
