I hope this Tote Bag Purse Hand Weaving pattern will inspire your creativity.

I recycle and reuse yarns, fabrics and clothing into a lot of my work to continue their life cycle, to utilize our existing resources, rather than always creating from scratch.

This 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 scraps and bits continues the cycle of production, recycling, repurposing and reusing materials from other sources to create new product in a new way.

Enhance and Strengthen the Natural Energy, Harmony & Balance in Your Life with Handmade Textiles.

Making a fine craft piece like this is like painting fine art, a detailed process that takes skill and time.

Each handmade, hand woven piece in my shop is created individually in limited quantity or one-of-a-kind, destined for only one person or home.

Is this Woven Bag for you or someone you know? Make 2, one for both of you!

Colors and textures of textiles can speak to your mood to lift your spirits or calm you, feeding your natural energy to help you find your center. Strengthen and align your inner essence with artisan handcrafted textiles.

I carefully select and combine colors for the right balance of positive energy in my weaving.


My weaving style is a bit bohemian, vintage shabby farmhouse romantic, coastal beach, rustic mountain cabin, country home natural style, with a bit of wabi sabi zen minimalism and earthy back to basics simplicity to ground it all.

Choose Artisan Handmade, Handwoven Style Accessories & Home Decor!

Celebrate the things in Life that really count, things that make you smile & your heart sing. Then, we each can share this with others to make a better world. - Amy C. Lund

Weaving since childhood, I find order and rhythm in placing each thread in my designs and enjoy the feel of the textures of the fibers in my hands.

I have an affinity for clean, simple designs which utilize and enhance the materials and techniques and bring them together - getting back to basics with an earthy rustic feel.

My finished hand woven products have timeless classic style suitable for any traditional rustic antique - filled primitive vintage farmhouse, french country cottage chic, coastal seaside retreat, mountain hideaway cabin, contemporary industrial loft, or modern Scandinavian - Nordic urban home decor.

It's all about how you style it!

I completed an M.S. in Textiles and Related Art from the University of RI and have studied and worked in several Art, History and Design Museums, demonstrating in historic settings at Shaker Villages and analyzing and managing collections behind the scenes.

My weaving has been featured in the Directory of Early American Craftsmen, in the Holiday collections of The White House, House Beautiful, Design New England, RI Home Design, Newport Life & Newport Life Wedding magazines, & has been sent around the world.



Each of my hand woven textiles is made with careful handwork and consideration to form as well as function.

Detail and commitment to artistry separate my hand woven textiles from many others.

I work with traditional hand and foot powered looms.

Most pieces are hemmed and finished by hand, made one-of a kind, or in short runs.

I am not a production weaver, and do not wish to make 100s of the same thing.

That is the art of the craft!

Use the search button or links within the shop to find similar items in different sections.


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 hand woven pieces can be heirlooms of the future.


You will find the long-term values outweigh 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 my hand weaving 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.

When I first saw this potholder I knew immediately that I wanted one. The vibrancy of the colors and patterns just jumped out at me. I remember making a potholder for my Mom as a kid in summer camp. THIS is a Potholder! The textures, the look, the feel are magical! I'm taken in by it's beauty, and love each opportunity to use it. As you can see in the photo, I'm a fan of Amy C. Lund, Handweaver. The towels and the potholder all complement each other perfectly. All come from the heart and mind of Amy C. Lund, Handweaver. A perfect match. Thank you, Amy! And as always, wrapped beautifully by hand and shipped quickly. I just love it!

I love these towels- well worth splurging on! Not only are they beautiful and well made but they are a workhorse in the kitchen and hold up well. when I think of all the money I spent over the years on store bought kitchen towels and they last a few months- my Dad even commented on the towel! Just purchased him one for Christmas! Makes a lovely gift 🎁
