The foundation for my work began in Portland, Oregon, where I took sewing and design classes. After a decade living in Portland, I moved back to my roots in Montana. It was here that the concept for my work began and I was able to merge my experiences in both places into the products you see today. My work is based upon the principles of awareness, quality, and connection. Awareness of where are products come from. Quality goods that are made to last. And connection to the actual person making the product. Each bag is designed with both style and functionality in mind. Waxed canvas, leather, and Pendleton wool are utilized in order create items that are long lasting. Materials for my work are sourced from US based manufacturers and suppliers whenever possible.
