We've popped up in many craft fairs and trunk shows across the country this year, but this holiday season, we managed to squeeze in one last show before the end of the year.
Renegade Craft in Seattle!
(And I was lucky enough to have the amazing event & wedding photographer John Curry capture the experience. Thank you so much John!)
In May 2018, I spent nearly a month in Tuscany, immersed in a region renown for olive oil, wine, truffles and leather. Inspired by a culture so connected to the land in a mindful way, I relished this rare opportunity to explore an ancient tradition working with vegetable-tanned leather.
I am a material driven-designer, with longevity and timelessness being paramount to my aesthetic: any object of value has to tell a story. Working with this pliable material in its natural state enabled me to combine my skills in textiles and woodworking in the most exhilarating way.
Here's a peek behind the scenes of creating the collection.
