Just Simple Bags
I’ve always had a passion for the arts, for color, texture, and design. After teaching literacy for 35 years, I began collecting beautiful designer cottons– Japanese fabrics, Australian Aborigine designs, fabrics with scripts in various languages (of course), Asian and African fabrics, batiks, metallic fabrics, fabric designs with faces, with animals, with leaves.
I began working with wool when I convinced my husband one of his Pendleton shirts, spattered with paint on the sleeves, needed to be repurposed. I’ve left his closet alone and search local thrift shops and GoodWill stores for fine wools in men’s suit jackets and women’s jackets and skirts: beautiful Irish and Scottish tweeds and herringbone and camelhair and cashmere. Each bag is designed with respect to the fabrics being used and the quantity of material available, so no two bags are alike. So enjoy shopping, and thank you for stopping by.
