Bay & Willow launched in 2016 and is dedicated to producing artist created handmade art and goods inspired by and made for those who practice the craft. We believe that handmade items carry a little bit of magic and our philosophy is to only share those things that will bring joy, power, meaning, and enjoyment into people’s lives. Bay & Willow aspires to be a lifestyle brand of carefully curated divination goods and homewares inspired by the unseen realm.

My name is Siolo Thompson, and I started the company after many years of creating fine art and illustrated work. In 2015 I truly found my tribe when I created the Linestrider Tarot, which was a personal project that was initially funded by a bunch of lovely people on Indiegogo. The project was then picked up and published by Llewellyn Worldwide, May 2016. In connecting with other tarot and craft practitioners around the world I began to create additional objects for the beautiful people who became part of my life and in a short span of time Bay & Willow was born.
Every Bay & Willow item is handmade by like minded people. This tiny company is queer friendly, cruelty free, committed to equality and safety for everyone. We live and work in the Pacific Northwest and when we are not making things you can find us recharging out in nature or whipping up a bit of kitchen witchery. Drop us a line anytime, we would love to hear from you!

A few FAQ's:

Why is the company named Bay & Willow?

My home studio looks out on the most beautiful Bay tree. Everyday as I sit at the drawing board I gaze out at the tree and all the birds that live in it and I feel grateful for its companionship. In my front garden there is an enormous Willow. These two trees are the bookends in my little creative nest and when brainstorming company names I immediately thought of them and their history in witchery, divination, and plant based medicine. If you ever need bay leaves for a soup or a dowsing rod, just let me know!

Where can we hook up on social media?

Personally, I'm a big fan of Instagram. Our Instagram is BayandWillow. If you have taken a beautiful photo with one of our products tag BayandWillow or #BayandWillow to give us a shout out online, it would really make our day! While Instagram is my favorite platform, you can also find us/me on Tumblr, Facebook, and YouTube.
