So right now, in patchwork style. This recycled tote has the perfect dose of color & pattern.
Heritage inspired & for the life well lived is the creative idea behind this bag. It is made with materials from my “stash”. I love to collect & dig through my collections & design something distinctive. Here I have sewn together recycled denim jeans, painter’s drop cloth, men’s woven shirt, deconstructed wrap skirt, plaid flannel shirt, leftover project scraps & deadstock fabrics.
This sturdy tote bag has a spacious interior compartment, fully lined, top leather handles, interior pocket, an exterior pocket, key ring holder & a magnetic closure.
This product was consciously made to reduce our footprint & support my mission to be uncommon.
Bag size 16” wide x 11” tall x 6” gusset
Fixed leather handles 1.5” x 18”

RURAL ROOTS + SLOW STYLE ART
I’m a self-taught artist from Minnesota-you betcha!! I enjoy taking discarded materials & creating them into new means of usefulness. My choice of medium is tractor & bicycle inner tubes along with found objects of interest.
My art is a slow style jewelry & handbag atelier founded in 2008, my focus is ethically crafted in timeless silhouettes that contain boldness & driven by my passion to be uncommon. I don’t do cookie-cutter!
All my styles are 100% handmade to be minimal waste-meaning only small amounts of the inner tube are left over after cutting, sewing & assembling my work. I believe that having a propose in creating my art softens the carbon footprint we leave behind. Together we can make a conscious choice to stand for our values.
Black is my happy color!
