I’ve always been fascinated by things from the past: women’s hand gloves, retired drop spindles, a rusty horseshoe. There’s a certain kind of charm in the way things were made, the attention to detail, evidence of a maker’s hand, the history buried in the material quality of an artifact, and the responsibility and stewardship of makers in the age of homespun. Perhaps this is where my interest in textiles and clothing first began.

I create garments for a world reflective of a time in the past, in which garments and textiles are the means through which a greater connection between the natural world and the human world can flourish. In this world, clothing is created using natural materials, grown locally, dyed naturally, and produced in small scale. Garments are treated as investments, precious in the history of their making.

My work aims to scale back the fast-fashion, trend-based value system of the fashion industry today, and inspire a reevaluation of craft and the material elements involved to create a new industry that respects the hands of its craftspeople, considers its environmental impact, and creates a more knowledgeable and connected network of consumers, makers, and producers.
