Beet From the City Gardens

Does mailing a postcard seem Old School? How about sending a postcard made by hand using medieval methods? You can’t get any more Old School than that! Sheet by sheet, we carefully craft our handmade paper. It is thick and rich with designs which are letterpress printed into its rough surface. Now that’s not a postcard you would find on every street corner!

Description

Just like the carrot, the beet was first cultivated along the Mediterranean and became part of the Estonian diet in the 19th Century. Thanks to its intense colour and sweet taste, the beet has found its way on to the menus of Tallinn’s top gourmet restaurants. You will find beets as the main ingredient in soups and salads such as rosolje – always popular at family gatherings. And did you know that in times past girls used to rub beet slices on their cheeks and lips to get a nice, red hue?

Our postcards are handmade from 100% recycled paper and printed with our letterpress on both sides.
