About Us

"Lavender and Layers" started off on Etsy as "3D by T and Me" when our 12 year old son wanted a 3D printer. We didn't know what in the world he would do with one, but made him a deal - if he could earn the money, he could get one. After countless lemonade stands in 100+ degree heat - he earned himself a printer. 

After a HUGE learning curve he discovered a way to make projects into essential oil holders. I shared it on my social media orders starting pouring in. It was then - that our "Son and Mom shop' was born.

When Covid-19 reared it's ugly head, we did a quick pivot and started making door opener / button pushers / touch tools. We wanted to help people avoid the most commonly touched surfaces. We made various prototypes before settling on our current design. We understand that a lot of surfaces to day need either your finger or a stylus to activate so we have two version available. Our standard version is a plastic moulded piece that allows for opening doors and pressing buttons. Our deluxe version has the same moulded plastic tool  and we pair it with a mini stylus so that you can use it on any surface from smart phones, ATM screens even the check out stand at Target!

While these tools will provide a barrier of sorts it DOES NOT take the place of washing your hands and we highly recommend sanitizing your touch tool regularly. 

Starting a business with our son has been such a blessing. He has learned so much about being a young entrepreneur. Everything from profit margins, tax and shipping rates and most importantly customer service. 

If you ever have an issue with any of our products, please feel free to reach out and we will do our very best to make things right by you.

Thank you in advance for supporting our small business.
Stay well!
