Last week I mentioned to Jordan I was planning to do another Gift Guide and she told me she was planning to do the same! #greatminds. If you haven’t already, go read her post! She sums up our passion for local and handmade perfectly! As I was making my list of the businesses I wanted to feature, I realized it was getting loooong. So I’m breaking it into two parts.
Jai Marshall ? I have known Jai for years. We first met at a blogger meetup. From there we learned we shared the same love for all things creative. She just started her own clothing line which focuses on sustainability and slow fashion. Each piece is made to order to (a custom piece ? just for you!).
I absolutely love Leigh! I first met her when she was an Artist in Residence at 701 Whaley and it was around the same time when I was really getting into natural dyes. She uses a lot of indigo in her work and produces gorgeous one of a kind garments and home goods.
Another indigo enthusiast is Caroline Harper. Caroline uses the traditional Shibori method in a lot of her pieces and the results are amazing!
Can’t have a list and not promote myself. Amirite? For handmade, one of a kind, naturally dyed pieces, I’m your girl.
I have shared my love for Chris and her jewelry before. If Boho and good vibes are your style, her jewelry is for you.
Melissa has serious skills. I love watching her behind the scenes on Insta-Stories.
Valery works with a lot of stones which I love because I need all the good vibes and energy I can get.
Gotta give love to another fiber artist!
Rachael knits and crochets accessories in vibrant colors!
Another Fiber Lover! They offer natural wool and mohair for purchase as well as handmade items and supplies.
Leather purse and wallets, fabric purses and wallets, bow ties, baby bibs?what do you need? Sally’s got it.
Mary Catherine makes one of kind purses. No two are the same (hence the name). She also makes home good accessories such as hand painted pillows
Lesley makes really cute vintage-inspired clutch purses. I like the details she adds to each piece (especially the brooches!)
Come back tomorrow for Part Two!
