idea evolution

March 4, 2010

Silk, burlap, hemp, canvas, indigo tie-dye from Mali, and undyed linen.  Oh, and wool felts from old sweaters.

A new project is on the horizon.  A line of bags, designed with proportion and function in mind.  Re-thinking how we carry things.

Each design, one of a kind, lots of hand-stitching left in to honor the process.

I found great colors of cotton twill tape and carpet threads at an old upholstery shop downtown, and bought Japanese silk

quilting thread from a textile vendor at the Gem Show.
