How Sisal Bunnies Are Made – Green text on white background with a rabbit silhouette.
Inspired by Beatrix Potter’s irresistible bunnies, these adorable cottontail Easter pieces are handmade using natural sisal fiber. Each Cottontails piece starts with a lightweight molded foam core. Natural sisal fiber is meticulously placed and shaped by hand – a complicated and time-consuming process to bring these rabbits to life. Sisal, a fiber derived from the agave plant, emits a subtle, fresh fragrance.

Without further ado, we introduce this hare-y family, share a few fun bunny facts, and break down the merits of a rabbit diet.

Mr. Cottontail

Every day means gardening for Mr. Cottontail. He heads home to the hollow in his carrot-mobile after a long day’s work nibbling lettuce, pulling carrots, and gathering a few greens for the family. Mr. Cottontail enjoys reading, nose-twitching, and sleeping.

Bunny Bytes:

The children’s classic “Peter Rabbit” was inspired by author Beatrix Potter’s pet rabbit, Benjamin Bouncer. Potter, an animal lover, was even known to take Benjamin for walks on a leash.

Bunny Bites:

Eating primarily fresh greens, fruits, and vegetables, rabbits could be the healthiest animals around. Try adding watercress to your diet-it’s loaded with Vitamin K and also contains vitamins A, C, and B6, calcium, and manganese.

Mrs. Cottontail

Not one for idle chatter, Mrs. Cottontail stays busy gathering wild herbs and flowers. She’s a culinary master, creating delicious salads and fresh vegetable displays for family and friends. In her spare time, Mrs. Cottontail enjoys picnics, lawn bowls, and fairy gardens.

Bunny Bytes:

The rabbits in Robert Adams’ modern classic novel “Watership Down” were inspired by the World War II 250 Airborne Light Company and the battle of Arnhem.

Bunny Bites:

Spinach is still one of the best vegetables around-just ask Popeye. All joking aside, this leafy plant retains its nutritious punch fresh, frozen, steamed, or blanched. It’s loaded with vitamins A, C, K, E, and Bs, and also includes potassium, calcium, and iron.

Beatrix Cottontail

Beatrix and her twin Benjamin keep their parents busy! Beatrix was excited to start school at the Rabbit Warren this year. She loves basket weaving, making daisy chains, and hopscotch.

Bunny Bytes:

Animated rabbit Bugs Bunny was the first cartoon character to appear on a postage stamp. Bugs and Mickey Mouse were also the first two animals to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Bunny Bites:

Buy your root vegetables with the greens. Beets, radishes, carrots, and turnips all grow with leafy tops packed in vitamins and other essential nutrients. Keep those greens for salads, pestos, soups, or smoothies. Don’t throw them away-said rabbits everywhere!

Just try to keep up with Benjamin! This very busy youngster won first prize at the annual “Hop, Skip & A Jump” triathlon. He and his twin sister Beatrix also learned to ride bikes this year.

Bunny Bytes:

The Easter Bunny as an Easter symbol began in Germany more than 300 years ago. He originally brought colored eggs to good children, similar to Santa Claus bringing presents.

Bunny Bites:

Treat herbs like lettuce. A well-balanced rabbit diet includes fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, fennel, dill and borage. It’s time for an herb makeover. Toss them fresh in a salad. Treat them like microgreens on sandwiches. Take a fresh approach to herbs.

Uncle Harvey Cottontail

He stands a hare above the rest! Uncle Harvey’s larger stature makes his presence known. He comes from a long line of giant hares. Recruited at an early age for basketball, Uncle Harvey instead became a garden scout expert, using his height as an advantage when surveying new potential feeding areas. His nieces and nephews love to join the fun and ride along in his bunny pack.

Bunny Bytes:

The White Rabbit, an anthropomorphic character in Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece “Alice in Wonderland,” still makes an impression today. “Down the rabbit hole,” “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date” and “follow the white rabbit” are all references to the frenzied page with a pocketwatch.

Bunny Bites:

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. Wild “weeds” like dandelion greens are good for you and free. But be careful when you forage. Fields are sometimes sprayed with weed killers. Only take from areas you know are safe.
