STORY BEHIND THE TEXTILES
I choose to use vintage textiles because of the quality of the cloth, color and weave that sometimes cannot be recreated today. Especially the homespun fabrics. My design process starts with the textiles. I have open racks of fabrics, vintage buttons and beads and varying shades of leather so I can just pull things out and start to create. I’m so happy to be a part of an expanding community of makers creating sustainable fashion and caring about how things are made. I feel so many people enjoy buying something that is handmade that has a heritage and soul to it.
I have a true love and appreciation of varying types of Indigo textiles. I choose to use ones from all different regions of the world and truly admire the people that made them and appreciate the time and skill that went into each one.
