Something that is so special for us as a small business is to make sure our huipil bags are one-of-a-kind. Even if the same textile is used, no two are the same.•
There is something so rewarding about choosing each of the textiles individually for each style of bag. This not only adds to the bag being so beautifully unique, but we also wanted to make sure our friends owned a true piece of art.
Here are some of the textiles chosen to make our latest bags.•
Stay tuned for pics of the finished product soon.
For the last four or five weeks I’ve been working on felting projects for my book, and will finish up the month of January doing the same. It’s been a crazy process so far filled with equal parts excitement and self-doubt. But I’m truly proud of work that I’ve put together, and I can’t wait to share it with you next year. In February I’m eager to get back to pet portrait commissions and creating a few Orchard Birds—and I’ll likely have a timeline for accepting new commissions then too. 😘😘

Here's another shot of my mama Aiko Kobayashi. Take a look at her woven tapestries - do you spot the Guatemalan influences? We're excited to be leading the #textiletravels together in August, full of creative workshops with rural artisan groups. Read more through link in bio. 🌿🌿🌿#fiberartist#ethicaltravel
Working away! These Baby Rockers are pretty damn cute! Awesome idea @rocklovepeace ⭐️. I would like to say how grateful I am every day for the last 4 years of being out of the toxic workplace I was stuck in and being able to survive and thrive with better people! #upcycle#grateful#sewing
Newsletter folks, I’ll be a bit late on this week’s edition. But...I’ve got a GIVEAWAY planned, so be sure to sign up to get notified!
In the meantime...this little work will be exhibited with 400 others at #preshrunk2018 @argyle_fine_art, opening tomorrow evening! Excited to check out the amazing art that will be on display there.
January is and has been a pretty hectic month for me! As many of you know when I'm not at home in sunny Salcombe ☀️ I also study history full time in Bath and so it's certainly difficult balancing that and whilst wanting to progress with SCC and my more creative side! These things take time and for me certainly this is something I want to grow, but at my own pace. For the time being my Etsy shop will stay shut due to the amount of deadlines I have right now (😩) as I feel I can't spend the time and love I want in making your orders! Stay with me though!! As every year I aim to grow bigger and there will certainly be new exciting opportunities here soon!! Please message me still though if you have any specific enquiries,questions or ideas you want to share 🙌🏽 Thank you for all continued support I hope everyone is having an amazing 2018 ✨
