Claire O'Brien - sole maker/human behind Cloud Rabbit Designs

Facts: I work a full-time day job (that I love). My spouse works full-time too... but has an undying lust for entrepreneurship and has three small businesses of his own. He motivates me daily. Our little house has a big backyard and a quiet street. On days off, we enjoy hustling (...and the occasional drink). I like to eat somewhat healthy & stay fit. And sleep. But most of all, coffee. We call our cat Madeline and our perfect red doggo, Remy. I'm almost 30 (how did that happen?!). Sewing has always been something I enjoy.

I create every one of my products from scratch with my own two hands, my own designs, with utmost care - and a mind in the clouds. My vision has always been to sew unique, quality products that are practical, affordable, beautiful and vegan friendly using my favourite designer fabrics, cork/faux leathers and canvas. I have focused on making a handful of simple designs that have evolved over time through my own creative evolution and valued customer feedback.

My "studio" is a small room in our basement. I have no conventional training - I've learned everything I know through YouTube videos, photos and advice from other makers and a LOT of trial and error. Nothing about this venture has been quick or easy or cheap - far from it - but it's the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I'm learning so much every day and I'm filled with ideas and ambition for what's yet to come. While I may be a small operation, I work hard and with lots of love for what I do.

Thank you for visiting my website and for taking the time to get to know me and my little handmade business. Your support means a lot and every purchase, big or small, helps to fuel this journey.

Care instructions

For all bags, I recommend spot cleaning when necessary with regular soap and water. Vinyl and faux leathers are water resistant and can be easily wiped clean with a cloth.

I recommend only machine washing your bags when spot cleaning won't do the trick - wash on cold, gentle cycle and place any bags with attached straps or fringe in a delicates bag. Lay flat to dry.

You may iron your bags to get them into shape again but DO NOT iron vinyl or faux leather, it will melt.

**Please be mindful that certain aspects of your bag may wear over time (moreso with daily and/or heavy use) and damage resulting from mistreatment or accident may occur beyond my control which I cannot be held accountable for and may not be able to repair.**

Do you offer local pickup?

If you are local to the K-W area and wish to arrange a pickup rather than paying for shipping, please contact me *prior* to placing your order to ensure a smooth and timely transaction.
