Refresh your Style with this Small Blue Boho Chic Bag, Summer Womens Purse, Coastal Nautical Handbag, Sand & Sea Beach Cottage Shoulder Bag Recycled Rag Hand Woven Tote ...Can you Feel the Cool Sea Breeze, Feel the Sand in your Toes and Hear Ocean Waves Washing By... Time to Head to the Seashore for a Seaside Vacation at the Beach Cottage!

My Recycled Rag Bags, Totes, Shoulder Bags, Clutches, Purses, Wallets, Pocketbooks, Computer Bags and Handbags are both colorful and durable carry-alls for your books, knitting, beach stuff or more general items. Throw it all in and go! Each one is designed and made individually. I like to make them because they are more painterly than my other weaving projects. Sometimes the color combination comes from my mood, or things I see around me.

I fold the cotton rags carefully to hide the raw edges for a smooth, sleek look (no messy frayed edges if I can help it!), and place them in one, at a time to overlap with the previous one and to the next to form a tight weave. Yes, this takes time, but it gives it a more finished look and also raises the quality. Sturdy canvas straps are used for the handles and also give added support to the sides and bottom of the bags. A strong snap is sewn into the top hems for closure. Inside is an attached pocket to hold smaller items and fiddly-bits for easy access. For a finishing touch, natural shell and beach stone pins are attached to each bag as a complimentary, yet contrasting, textural accent. All bag bodies are machine-sewn, with the details added by hand.

T‪he Why ‬of what I do?... Why Handmade, Why Handwoven…
It is about ‪Living‬ with ‪‎Purpose‬ and ‪Consciousness‬ of the things around me and the world around me, which we each do in our own way. I am a Weaver, others are Doctors, Lawyers, Astronauts or Auto Mechanics. It's about acknowledging the things in Life that really count, things that make you or me smile & our hearts sing when in action, or at rest. Finding things that center us, things we are good at. Then, we each can share this with others to make a better world. -Amy C. Lund



Each of my hand woven textiles is made with careful handwork and attention to form as well as well as function. Attention to detail and commitment to traditional artistry separate my hand woven textiles from many others. I work entirely with traditional hand and foot powered looms, not using computers to guide my patterns or mechanics to power the loom. Each piece is a test and display of knowledge of materials, technical skills, and artisanry.

From the beginning, materials are chosen, the threads are wound to the same length, dressed on the beam of the loom, the pattern is threaded meticulously through the eyes of the heddles and reed one by one and tied up in preparation for weaving. This establishes the base for the fabric, aligning the threads of the warp to create a ground. Planning for size, color, and pattern are established before insertion of the weft filler. Most pieces are hemmed and finished by hand, as well, to create a smooth, refined look.


Items are made one-of a kind, or in short runs. Items listed here in my shop are ready for sale as described. I try to provide a sampling of choices within a style until they sell out. I am not a production weaver, and do not wish to make 100s of the same thing. That is the art of the craft! Consider within reason if something really needs to be 1 or 2 inches longer or wider as you browse the items being offered. Use the search button or links within the shop to find similar items, which may be offered in different sections. Please contact me if you cannot find something to suit your needs. Special orders can be placed for specific colors, longer runners, sets of table linens, or larger area rugs.


I prefer to use Natural Fibers and Yarns, mostly Cotton, Linen, Wool, Mohair and Alpaca, although some of my items use mixed fibers for variety, texture and novelty. Every fiber has characteristics that can be used alone, or blended with the others to get different textures and effects. I understand that some people may be sensitive to some fibers and try to find alternatives to create solutions for comfort and care.

Sometimes I will use "Mill-Ends," or yarns left over from textile industry in my weaving. These lots may be limited in quantities or dyelots. To me, using these materials works to utilize our existing resources, rather than always creating from scratch. It challenges me to try to fit my vision to the material, or create a new vision, instead of discarding material because it doesn't suit a style or design. Using "Mill-Ends" continues the cycle of production, recycling, repurposing and reusing materials from other sources to create new product in a new way. With this same view, I also recycle and reuse old fabrics and clothing into the rag rugs and pot holders to continue their life cycle. A hole or stain may devalue an item or structure in one form, while it may have uses in another.

For special orders and custom work, my materials are sourced from more "Standard" commercial yarn supply stores for consistency in color lots, quantities and fibers.


Each piece is made to be used and should be cared for as you would any well-crafted tool. Many of my finished items are machine washable, unless noted, and meant to be used every day. Many of the items have been tested over the years by myself and by many of my customers. Again, with attention to care, hand woven textiles will last a long time and bring continued enjoyment, although just as with anything, they may not last forever. Consider textile heirlooms from past generations that are still used today. Well-made and cared-for, these can be heirlooms of the future.


I commit myself to my work with my hands, my heart, and with my time as a full-time professional occupation, not as a hobby. In doing so, I compete with machine-made products to earn a living wage to survive in our current economic climate. Consider these pieces as works of enjoyable, aesthetic art as well as lasting utilitarian, working craft, and you will find the long-term values they carry can far outweigh some of the costs of things in your everyday environment that may be much more temporary or disposable.

Enjoy Artful Living with simple, sophisticated and stylish textiles. Hand woven textiles make unique gifts that give pleasure in the simplest of ways, highlighting holidays, celebrations and special occasions. Treat yourself, or give a gift that keeps on giving. I focus on classic patterns, colors, and textures that will fit in both traditional vintage or modern contemporary lifestyles and décor. Heirloom home decor furnishings, textiles, table linens & fashion accessories hand woven in natural cotton, linen, wool, alpaca & mohair, will last for years.

Frequently asked questions about aclhandweaver

Each of my pieces is one-of-a-kind or limited edition, handcrafted individually. Variations in color, textures, and patterns are part of the natural characteristics of the materials and processes. (& quirks are sometimes natural characteristics of the artist, as well!) I take pride in my work and value the time I put into it and hope you will too, with the understanding that I am not a machine and things won't always be perfect.

I do my best to describe each piece and provide quality photos to help you make your decision to purchase. I hope you will be satisfied with the items you purchase for years to come, as many of my other customers are! I have over 15 years of experience in business and have been weaving for more than 30 years.
Care Instructions are noted in Item Descriptions and on Item Labels. Some things do happen to textiles, just like pottery may chip; soiling, stains or fading may happen, just as a cutting board may show a few cut marks over time. I cannot control, animals, kids, husbands, weather, or other acts of time and nature. Sometimes, those same things add to our lives and show we are living it well, not afraid of using & enjoying the world around us, but interacting with it and with the material objects we choose to fill it.
Several things to consider for purchasing/ordering:
-Where are you going to put this piece? For instance, consider whether a table runner needs to fall over the edges of the table, or be used as a centerpiece (will a few inches in length or width really make a difference), if a rug needs to go under furniture, or only in open areas on the floor.
-What alternative size are you looking for? This will help me give you an estimate for the project.
-What is your budget? This may also determine size parameters, or materials.
-Do you have a picture of the room decor or furnishing item that you would like to compliment, or other color/style reference you could attach?
Ask for more info.
I also can arrange Layaway Payment schedules for some items if that is more convenient. I understand that while some of my items may seem expensive for initial outlay, they are also an investment in quality goods that will continue to give years of practical use and aesthetic pleasure. Please contact me if you would like more information on this option.
Generally items ship by USPS within 3-5 business days after payment, usually by priority mail, sometimes depending on expense.

Shipping & handling costs account for materials and time, as well as postage. Items purchased together will have separate shipping costs unless otherwise noted. Variables of shape, size, weight and value make it difficult and time consuming to have a numerous pricing scale per item and are reasons behind my standardized method as by many businesses.
